I wonder if any still remember how to override a particular node in Drupal 5 ? I have tried out several ways but didn't work. Couldn't find such info any more on google.



  • double dash is for D7, have you included the preprocessor function in template file drupal.org/node/249726

In Drupal 5 you need to add the suggestion yourself by placing this function in your theme's template.php:

function _phptemplate_variables($hook, $vars = array()) {
  switch ($hook) {
    case 'node':
      $vars['template_files'] = array('node-'. $vars['nid']);
  return $vars;

Once that's done you'll be able to use node-13.tpl.php (note the single dash).
