1You can easily embed the results of a view into other parts of your site;
2either with code as a module, or in nodes or blocks as snippets. The
3easiest way is to use the function <strong>views_embed_view()</strong>:
4
5<code>/**
6 * Embed a view using a PHP snippet.
7 *
8 * This function is meant to be called from PHP snippets, should one wish to
9 * embed a view in a node or something. It's meant to provide the simplest
10 * solution and doesn't really offer a lot of options, but breaking the function
11 * apart is pretty easy, and this provides a worthwhile guide to doing so.
12 *
13 * @param $name
14 * The name of the view to embed.
15 * @param $display_id
16 * The display id to embed. If unsure, use 'default', as it will always be
17 * valid. But things like 'page' or 'block' should work here.
18 * @param ...
19 * Any additional parameters will be passed as arguments.

21function views_embed_view($name, $display_id = 'default') {
22</code>

24To figure out the id of a display, hover your mouse over the tab to select that display. Everything after the '#views-tab-' is the id of that display. This ID is guaranteed never to change unless you delete the display and create a new one.
