Drupal Contextual Views

In this advanced views class, Robert explores contextual filters.

Contextual filters work similarly to regular filters, but there is one important difference. Instead of setting a filter value manually, the value is fetched from variables sent programmatically to the view. This adds an incredible amount of flexibility to the views you create.
