Further settings adjustments to your Draggable table

  1. You may not be happy with the order of the fields in your table. For example in mine, I want the All Terms field over on the left.

  3. Click the arrows icon next to the word Fields in the middle column.

  4. Rearrange the fields by dragging them into a new order. Click Update.

  5. You probably only want to display certain types of fields in your table, so let's narrow down what can be displayed by adding a filter to the view. Click the + symbol next to Filters.

  6. For this example we'll use filter using a Node Type, but you may find it more useful to filter using Taxonomy terms to give yourself extra flexibility in displaying exactly the nodes you want to.

  7. Select whatever Node type you want to display.

  8. Click Override, then Update, then be sure to click the Save button!

    Congratulations! Your table is ready. Here's the preview of our example table:

  9. To see what the real table looks like - which is a bit different than the preview - click View Page or go to the URL you specified when setting the path:

    This is the way the real table looks:

thanks! I was almost there, but your tut made it work perfectly.

Thank you so much, now that I built a bunch of Drupal sites I can find it a bit slow and redundant, but quite a while ago, when I moved from Joomla to Drupal, I was begging for tutorials like this where nothing is taken for granted.
I have it running in several sites, and for some reason, on this last site, I can't find out why I can't get the drag handles to be shown, the   is not printing into the first . I created the theme from scratch, but that is not the issue, since the objectt is not printing at all, so I have nothing to deal with. Any ideas?
Thank you again for a great job.

Thanks for a great tutorial. I appreciate all the steps. That's something that can be rare in the Drupal world.

One question, though: Is there any purpose to the ordering buttons within the Preview?

Thanks a ton for this tutorial! Worked perfectly the first time. I really appreciate the detailed nature of this tutorial.
