I think Earl Miles is a genius. There, I said it.
I have been trying to create a block (View content pane) that shows News content written by the author of the node I am on. The node is Organic Group content. I can do it outside of OG with a regular old View block with a contextual filter that grabs the Author ID. But using Organic Groups and Panels, I have been unable to pass the Author ID as a context.
I have the content pane successfully filtering all of the News for the Group the node is in, but get stuck when I try to filter by the author of the node. In Views when I try to set the Argument Input it looks like this:
Content: Author uid source
Here is where I get hung up. I can select Node:Author but think I should be getting the Node:Author ID. And when I try to pass that in Page Manager I just don't have luck. This seems like it should be possible because it is such a common thing for a regular view, but I think I am missing some concept and could really use a point in the right direction.
