Does WP have something like Drupal's views? (4 posts)

    It may help to clarify what Views is for those who don't use Drupal:
    "This tool is essentially a smart query builder that, given enough information, can build the proper query, execute it, and display the results. It has four modes, plus a special mode, and provides an impressive amount of functionality from these modes."

    Basically, it's an extremely powerful and flexible GUI to rapidly build SQL queries and display the results.

    Does wordpress have something similar?

    Thanks

    There might be a plugin that does that, but WordPress query to the post/page data is best accessed via query_posts().

    I see. Thanks Michael, I will do it.

    If anyone does know of a good plugin, feel free to suggest here.

    Built-in tag views, category views, date-related views.

    Check out Template_Hierarchy. While it doesn't document exactly what you're after, notice the range of "canned" views that are built-in.
