I have a field in my view which displays the taxonomy vocabulary that each result/node is linked to. However, I need a way to get that taxonomy vocabulary result and use it as a class for the view row - not just the field.

Has anyone had any success with something like this before? Options I can think of might be Tokens, direct template theming, or Display Suite, but I don't know how I would go about fetching that vocabulary field output and using it as the row's class.

Any help would be received gratefully :)

You can achieve this by passing replacement token to row class as shown in figure below:

enter image description here

Update #1

Install Views PHP & add Global: PHP field in view, then enter following values in PHP field

Value code => return strtolower(str_replace(' ', '-', $row->title));

Output Value => <?php echo $value; ?>

Replace [title] with [php] in Row class. Check image below for reference.

enter image description here

  • Hi Vishal; that does work! Only one problem. If the content of a [title] field is 'Hi There', then the row class also becomes 'Hi There', when I need it to be 'hi-there'. For a class I obviously need to make the output lowercase and replace the space with a dash. Any ideas?

If you're looking to use it as a class for the whole row rather than just for the field, use a views template.

The Advanced -> OTHER -> Theme: Information section of your view usually has good ideas on what to call files but it doesn't seem to include anything for the row.

If you're using row style: fields... try making a template file called views-view-fields--myviewname.tpl.php.

To dig into the variables available to that template file, the first thing you want to do is install the Devel module, turn it on, and put this in the template:


or maybe


dpm() prints the named variable on the screen when the file is run.
