how to build a view with views?

hi

i am new to drupal and using the views module.

i want to make an home page view that has the latest 5 articles, 5latest books and so on.

i have my html and jquery to display them in a separate html page.

so i want to get the latest of each category and use my own html for that.


how can i achieve that?

best regards

ron

Views is complicated a little difficult to learn. You're simply going to put about 30 minutes to learn it. I would google "views tutorial". There are some good podcasts out there.

Then you could use this, http://pras.net.np/blogs/styling-views-using-output-rewrite, to have full control of the HTML output.

hi

thanks for the answer.

i have already used the views several time but i have problem to take the last records from each category.

is that so complicated?

i know how to do it with php itself but not with views.
