Node page is not loading once I add below code


I was referring https://api.drupal.org/api/drupal/modules%21node%21node.module/function/node_view/7 and added below code in my node--type.tpl.php

  $node = node_load($nid);
  $node_view = node_view($node);
  $rendered_node = drupal_render($node_view);
  echo $rendered_node;
  • are you sure $nid has value ?

  • yes.i declared $nid=$node->nid . If i hard code node id of type of itself the page is not loading, if i give node id of other types the page is loading.

  • Can you define "not working"? What happens? A white screen, a timeout, an error message? Is there something relevant in the Apache/PHP/Drupal logs? Commented Feb 4, 2016 at 8:09

As I don't have the Drupal sources at hand right now, I didn't digg into it yet. But I'm pretty sure the node_view() function is using your node--type.tpl.php for rendering its output.

So calling it within your template will lead to a recursion. You might want to check on that.

  • Good point. But it would only lead to recursion if the node loaded with node_load($nid) is of the same bundle as the "type" in node--type.tpl.php, right? Commented Feb 4, 2016 at 8:04
