Last time I gave a quick introduction on how to create and manage queues using Entityqueue. This time I'll show you how to use them with Views to display content sorted by their position in the queue.

It's that time again! DrupalCon is right around the corner and it's time to submit your talk.

The call for content ends March 7th at 11:59PM Austin local time (UTC -6).
