I am workign on a drupal 7 site to help students find the right class. i would like people to be able to see in a block on the left the class subjects and then be shown in the content section all of the classes matching their selection. i setup all of the classes as nodes and created a "subject" hierarchy. I am hoping to get suggestions on which modules I would need to do this.
I have looked at the following:
* use page manager and views to override the taxonomy pages for subject with a view that shows the info I want for each class
* use taxonomy menu to create the block I want
I also looked at possibly using Taxonomy Block and Taxonomy Filter.
I am new to Drupal and struggling to figure out which of the options will best meet my needs.
To make clear exactly what functionality i need: i distilled it into the key features and put together 3 quick mockups which I have as png files. Unfortunately I'm not sure how to add those to this post and wasn't able to figure it out by searching the forum. if you would like me to post those, can tell me how to post those?
