I had a search page using View + exposed filter. I would like to reuse the exposed filter in a link. That is, I am interested passing arguments in URL to the exposed view filter.
Currently, I found 2 possible related ways.
1) One is view PHP filter(http://drupal.org/node/690670). It seems that I can add a new filter with php code.
2) Another is creating a Mymodule and use hook function to replace the filter(refer to http://drupal.org/node/360780#comment-form).
I am not sure which the best way is, could anyone give me some opinions?
By the way, my exposed filter is CONTAIN ANY WORDS to the NODE TITLE. I also would like to adjust it a little bit. I mean changing the criteria of searching nodes. Can I apply another validation(with php) after the result of the [CONTAIN ANY WORDS to the NODE TITLE] search?
