Drupal 8 Views – Filter nodes by today's date in the views user interface


This is my first time posting, so please forgive me if I post incorrectly and I will be happy to republish as needed with guidance.

This query is related to the following previous query that I recently found:

The view filter criteria date field is greater than the current date

I have used this method (operator> = today) with some success, however I would like to create "future" nodes and they should be filtered too. What I need is a date Y time field to filter just today's date. I have tried many things to include:

  • operator = today + either value type, machine readable or offset (does not return results)

  • operator = now + either value type, machine readable or offset (does not return results)

  • context filter: summary links (non-adjustable granularity I can find, so it returns multiple summary links for single date and summary + one summary link is not a good user interface for the app)

  • context filter: default – "current date" (does not work; known issue with effectively variable patch to kernel that I would like to avoid) ref: https://www.drupal.org/project/drupal/issues/ 2325899

  • date field only (does not work due to UTC time and changes during daylight saving time)

Thank you very much for your review / assistance. -C
