Node Type Views is a simple module to generate teaser listings and RSS feeds of nodes based on node type. This module is not an add-on for the views module. If your are satisfied with a frontpage like listing of nodes based on content types, Node Type Views may be right for you. If you want to do anything more advanced use the views module instead.
Node Type Views uses Drupal core settings for the number of items to display. Node Type Views is meant to satisfy the basic need for node type listings without using taxonomy workarounds and little additional server-side processing.
To add content type views with Node Type Views go to
admin/settings/nodetypeviews choose the content types you want to generate views for. For each content type you check a menu item will be created that links to the view. You may have to clear the menu cache to view the new items.
Node Type Views does not rely on other contributed modules and adds no database table.
It was brought to my attention that there is the Get Content Type module, that provides views for custom content types using a slightly different approach. There will probably be no further development of the Node Type Views in favor of using the Get Content Type module.
