 Status:       patch

I'd rather see this done universally (not just for taxonomy urls) using
the new sql rewrite capability. specifically, some code will implement
the rewrite_sql hook and look for a querystring param &ntype=blog,story
and then inject the proper WHERE clause. this will be very useful for
tracker, home page, taxonomy urls, etc.

The attached fix wants to add a new feature to taxonomy.module: the
ability to filter data also on node types.

This is a need when you have to share one vocabulary between multiple
node types.
One example is the vocabulary 'Geography', containing all Cities and
Regions. You could have events, stories and other custom made node
types, sharing this vocabulary.
The need arises when you want to see only events of a certain region;
if you filter only on region, you'll see also stories and the other
custom node types.

The new syntax is the following:


to filter based on three terms (in OR each others) and on two different
node types



to filter based on three terms (in AND each others) and on two
different node types

The rest of the syntax for taxonomy/term remains the same, and the
patch works also for taxonomy feed.

Node types are tested for validity. You can specify one or more node
types; if you omit node types, normal term filtering is issued.

Feedbacks and help testing this patch is needed; personally, I think
this would improve temendously taxonomy functionalities, and hope this
will be committed to Drupal core.

I agree with you that this is an old story, but nothing has been
committed to 4.5, that introduced also a new taxonomy syntax.

My patch has also some pluses:
- it is specific for 4.5 and takes care of the new taxonomy syntax
- it lets you specify multiple node types
- syntax is clean

Will this work with 4.5.2?

If so - I am looking for exactly this funcionality!

I'll work on a port for 4.5.2 hopefully next week...
I'll keep you informed.

Here is the patch that adds nodetype filtering capabilities to 4.5.2
taxonomy module.
Syntax is backwards compatible, so if you plan not to use node type
filtering, syntax does not change at all.
 (see previous postings in this thread)

I would need extensive testing and feedback... and hope this
functionality will be included into Drupal core.

New features only get added to the HEAD branch... you'll have to update
your patch.


January 24, 2005 - 01:56 : matteo

Ok, Steven,
I'll rewrite the patch also for CVS....

Attachment: http://drupal.org/files/issues/taxonomy_nodetype_CVS.patch (4.05 KB)

Here is the patch for Drupal CVS.
I noticed the great addition of node_rewrite_sql... very powerful...
I'm starting extensive testing on the patch, and I really woul like it
to be added to core taxonomy, because it becomes a must for several
