Views on content types

It is difficult at first to figure out how to create a “recipient” for content, so that all published content is wrapped under a menu item in the navigation bar that acts as the wrapper. Views is the module that allows to address it. I created a custom content type event, with added custom fields location and when, and wanted to view on this content type. This is done by filter on node: type, and then when page refreshes choosing “is one of: event” (under node type).  Row style has to be changed to node, and style to html list. Then clicking on add display of type page we can specify the path of the page, I used event. After saving the view, a menu item has to be created on primary links, with a path of event.
