Have you ever created a view and the only thing you needed it for was embedding it somewhere on your site? On some projects I have had recently I certainly had and embedding regular view displays will work. But, you either have to choose from a block, page, feed, or use the default display from the views you want to embed. What if you did not want to have a callback or a block associated with a view and only wanted to embed it somewhere else on the site? What could you do? Create an embed views display of course!
Getting the site back online I will get the posts back up as soon as I can.
I needed to import our messages from BaseCamp and slap them into our new project management site which runs Drupal of course.
