As of February 26, 2017, 914,043 Drupal sites report that they use Views.

The Views module is used so much that it is a part of Drupal 8 Core which launched November 19, 2015.

This course was created using Drupal 7, but can help you understand the ins and outs of Views even if you are using 8.

When you need to manipulate the display of the content on your Drupal site, Views are the way to go!

You will learn how to:

  • display your view on your site's front page
  • filter by content types, authors and more
  • Add and rearrange sort orders
  • update the format of Views
  • grant or deny user access to Views
  • refresh content with AJAX settings.
  • and more

Follow along with your own Drupal test sites.
