Exposed Filters in DXPR Builder

There are 2 ways in which exposed filters can be used. One option is to set the exposed filter value in the DXPR Builder modal that pops up if you click the pencil icon on your views display. The purpose of this method is to re-use the same views displays in multiple places with different filter-based content. 
You can also let your website's visitors manipulate exposed filters by enabling the option Show exposed filters, this is Drupal's intended use of exposed filters. In order for this to work it is required that you enable Ajax on your views display. 


Contextual Filters in DXPR Builder

Contextual Filters are an advanced filtering option that let's Drupal determine filter values from the context of the page. A typical usage of contextual filters is to load content belonging to the same taxonomy term on a taxonomy term overview page. For example the page taxonomy/term/3 will load all content referencing taxonomy term 3. 

It is possible for views inside a DXPR Builder container to filter content based on contextual filters that rely on ID values in internel paths, but there are some requirements: 

  • The views display must be a block display, this does not work for page type displays.
  • The block display must have Ajax enabled.
  • The block display must be set up to load default values from the URL, for example: "WHEN THE FILTER VALUE IS NOT IN THE URL" -> Provide default value -> Taxonomy Term ID from URL
