I am getting five instances items in my View row when I wrap image field inside my link field. This is what I have in the template file:

    <?php foreach ($fields as $id => $field): ?>
  <?php if (!empty($field->separator)): ?>
    <?php print $field->separator; ?>
  <?php endif; ?>

  <?php print $field->wrapper_prefix; ?>
    <?php print $field->label_html; ?>
    <?php //print $field->content; ?>
    <div class="myRow">
        <div class="myImg">
            <span class="featuredVideo"></span>
            <a href="<?php print $fields['field_news_link']->content; ?>" target="_blank"><?php print $fields['field_news_image']->content; ?></a>
            <?php //print $fields['field_news_image']->content; ?>
        <a href="<?php print $fields['field_news_link']->content; ?>"><?php print $fields['field_news_source']->content; ?></a>
  <?php print $field->wrapper_suffix; ?>
<?php endforeach; ?>

If I uncomment <?php //print $field->content; ?> and remove the linked image and the rest of my mark up, I don't get multiple instances of the item.

  • Try using $field and not $fields for the output.

  • It breaks the page. I get these errors: Notice: Undefined variable: field in include() (line 31 of /templates/views-view-fields--featured-news--block-1.tpl.php). Warning: array_keys() expects parameter 1 to be array, null given in include() (line 31 of /templates/views-view-fields--featured-news--block-1.tpl.php).

  • You can actually output the fields as you do, but in that case you should remove/comment out the foreach ... and endforeach rows. See views-view-fields.tpl.php

  • Thanks, that did it! Pretty obvious fix that I missed. If you provide this as an answer I'd be happy to approve it. Thanks again!

The field template prints all the fields as a row. If you want to output the row of fields manually you need to remove the foreach iteration of the fields.

See views-view-fields.tpl.php for more info.
