list content of a category with custom fields in columns

Post by tychapogoy » Sat Aug 17, 2019 8:28 pm

I wish to list the content (articles) of a category (in list layout) with custom fields to these articles in other columns. How could I create such view or layout, please?

- you can see some articles module in module folder, that will show article
- or see source code of article view to get content.
- then embed module article in other view, no need to build new view or layout.
include module in new view via "loadmodule position"

Thank you, dear harperlala. I'm not interested in the content of the articles, but listing titles of the articles (also named "content" in J) together with one or two custom fields next to it in a separate sortable column.

I use the method, which you described in multiple modules. It allows to list article titles and some of their identifiers after it in parentheses. But I haven't seen a way a selector for any of the custom fields. Additionally, a list in a form of a sortable table is preferable for our use. The custom field I'm interested in is of a date type.

I would be pleased by creating a "Category list" menu item, but I cannot see a way to display any of the custom fields either.
