I'm creating a custom template file for a specific content type. I'm printing most of values with

<?php print render($content['field_blabla']); ?>

As some of them didn't show up and they are not empty I tried


Indeed they aren't in the array printed, but if try

$node = node_load($node->nid, NULL, TRUE);

I can see the value!

What's the problem? Why are they missing?

Sounds like their field display settings are hidden, which is one reason it would not be in the $content renderable array.

Check the display settings for the applicable view mode for this content type on the "Manage Display" tab.

  • I have checked it, and it was ok for the default view, but not the "full content" tab... So I checked now again and found the problem! Thanks a lot! Jan 19, 2017 at 18:57
  • It would be Default by default if full content is not checked off for custom display settings.
