As of the date of this writing views 2 for Drupal does not have a canned method of accepting multiple arguments that are CCK fields. The case where this came up for me was in a CCK select field that had dynamically generated options (created through php). The options were years, and the user was allowed to chose multiple years. How then, can one set a view to dynamically filter for content that had been marked with at least one of the years sent in the argument?

The Views module for Drupal 6 (also known as Views 2) ships with several default views which allow you to override certain Drupal core list pages. One of the most useful of these views is the view provided for taxonomy term list. Just recently I decided to set up views to override my taxonomy pages so that they would show children terms, but when I jumped into the Views 2 interface and tried to actually do it I was left a little perplexed; if you are reading this page you probably were too.

The Drupal Webform module by Nathan Haug aka “quicksketch” is in my book rates up there in the top ten most important Drupal modules in existence and it’s not that hard to use once you understand how it works. This is a brief tutorial designed to help people get a handle on the Webform module quickly so they can start using it to add web forms to their website. Note: This tutorial is written in the context of Drupal 6. There may be minor differences for Drupal 5 installations.
