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.

Hmm, that is a little difficult. You might have to make a view for each category and use Panels to glue them together. Or you could change your requirements and simply show the 20 latest of all the types and not care about each type.
