Arranging Content Using Views

Return to Drupal Cloud Landing Page

A View allows you to pull content dynamically and arrange it in many different ways. One advantage of a view is that it will update automatically as new content is added.

You control which content to draw from and which fields from that content to display. The view may be created as a page or a block. You can display your data in several different formats, e.g., grid, table, or popup (jump) list.

Blog is an examples of a view. To configure the Blog view, click Structure, then Views from the admin menu.
