I need the equivalent for hook_preprocess_node for custom pages, which aren't nodes.

The particular page I need to theme is provided by the entity registration module 'node/10/register'. I can add theme suggestions for the page using hook_preprocess_page - but how to I add a theme suggestion for the actual content, so I don't have to rewrite the page.tpl.php?

Alternatively if there is an existing pattern to name the file then that would be even better.

You need to copy the file


from the theme directory of the module : entity.

Paste it into your theme's template directory, and rename it to


Other theme suggestions are:


If you want to have access to the preprocess function then add this function to your theme's template.php file :

function MYTHEME_preprocess_entity(&$vars) {
  • It's not a template for the entity itself, it's the page node/10/register - which is the registration form. The registration entity itself is the submitted results of this form.

    In that case you want to theme a form, and you will have to create your own theme function to do that. You need to implement hook_theme and use the form ID as the array key. Once you have a theme function then you can create a preprocess to go with it. Commented Aug 29, 2014 at 11:10
