I've managed (after a lot of struggle) to create a view with four exposed filters (all filters are taxonomy fields). My problem is that now by default no data is presented to the user whene the page loads and data appears only when a filter term is chosen. I'm trying to achieve the exact opposite: have all data presented and then filter it accordingly. how can i do it?
When editing the filter, you can choose to require it if it's a select type of filter, you can also provide a default filtering that's used (before the user inputs). My guess is that you need to tweak these settings. to make sure that the default view filter settings display all or a selection of your choosing.
I know this thread is quite old already, but I came-across this one as I had same problem too when searching for some solution in Google.
But I just managed to solve this with Drupal 8, but it should be the same for Drupal 7.
On any of "Exposed Filter" that you set, under the "Operations", choose "Contains any word".
I hope that helps for anyone that have the same problem too. Cheers
