Block Visibility: by view and content type

You may want a block that provides some navigation for a view. I use this snippet to display the block on a view Page as well as when viewing content of a particular type. So for instance, I might have a view page which lists the current content of type 'story' called myview. On the myview Page, I also list each content's title in a block similar to a menu, so I can quickly move through the story titles.

  1. Download and compile mini_sendmail.
