  • Can you provide which templates are you using to override your views fields? Jul 3 '16 at 17:16
  • @darol100 I used boostrap theme, but it's not relate to theme because I have the same in the views preview.

I think it could be because of the <i>....</i> tags part, if you take that out, does it render? Seems like views uses Filter HTML, and only popular html tags are allowed on Custom Fields or Re-Write boxes.

You should be able to achieve your goal by creating a template file.


<span class="stats">{{ fields.totalcount.content }}<i aria-hidden="true" class="fa fa-eye"></i></span>
