On view setting page

enter image description here

I have view with menu link and path. I want to turn it off, revert to basic view master. I've try to remove menu, but didn't change anything. Then I try to remove path but is mandatory. Clone view make same view with page path.

Only solution I can see is create new view and repeat settings (I don't want to do that!), another is to just change path to some useless one so it dons't conflict with my menu links (paths). Any ideas?

  • A 'page' view needs a path by definition - if your view shouldn't have a path, you should probably use one of the other display types – Clive Feb 26 '15 at 12:34
  • It dose not! You can create one in D7 where you are asked in the beginning (via checkboxes) do you want support for page and/or block. I have view without path and I'm using it programmatically. I'm embedding view via views_embed_view('view_name'). Display name for my view without page is master, where normally you can see something like page, attachment or block. BTW can you point to this definition? – sobi3ch Feb 26 '15 at 12:48

  • I didn't say a view needs a path - I said a 'page' view needs a path – Clive Feb 26 '15 at 12:56
  • So do you understand my problem? – sobi3ch Feb 26 '15 at 15:28

While creating a view uncheck Create a page checkbox and check create a block checkbox;

If you already have created a View, you can add new display as shown in figure below: enter image description here

  • Yes, but I was in opposite situation. I've create view with page (several weeks ago). Tweak page display type. After-while I realize I don't want page functionality any more and I want to remove it. – sobi3ch Feb 26 '15 at 17:03

I just realize that all you need is to remove current display type, like show on attached screenshot. So when you have only e.g. page display type after removal it'll become master again.
