How can I print the title of my view in views-view.html.twig?

I have tried both {{ title }} and {{ label }} but neither work.

You can see the title is set in the View, and the template is using {{ title }}

  • This must work. {{ title_prefix }} {{ title }} {{ title_suffix }} Are you sure you added a title to the view? – Mohammed ATIFI Jan 15 '18 at 15:37
  • Yup, title is added to the view. I even removed my custom template, so the core theme template is used, and that doesn't show the title either. – Paul Canning Jan 15 '18 at 15:40
  • You should be able to add in a {{ dump() }} debug statement in your twig file, and at least get an idea of what variable are there for you to use. See drupal.org/docs/8/theming/twig/debugging-twig-templates for full details on setting up twig debugging. – Tyler Fahey Jan 15 '18 at 15:40
  • and did you flush all caches ? – Mohammed ATIFI Jan 15 '18 at 15:44
  • Yup! Always do when working with templates :) – Paul Canning Jan 15 '18 at 15:46

You have to use {{ view.title }}.

  • I can confirm this solution works for me. {{ title }} delivers empty content, while {{ view.title }} does the trick. – Marcos Buarque Mar 27 at 14:16

The title is only available in the admin preview, see the documentation of the template:


 * @file
 * Default theme implementation for main view template.
 * Available variables:
 * - title: Title of the view, only used when displaying in the admin preview.

In other cases add it in preprocess:


 * Implements hook_preprocess_HOOK() for views templates.
function mytheme_preprocess_views_view(&$variables) {
  $view = $variables['view'];

  $variables['title'] = [
    '#markup' => $view->getTitle(),
  • Eurgh, what nonsense! what is the point of only showing the title in the preview? Will using the preprocess hook work with a multilingual setup? – Paul Canning Jan 15 '18 at 17:04
  • This is because the title is displayed in a title block. I don't see why this shouldn't work in multilingual. – 4k4 Jan 15 '18 at 17:11

An easy workaround is to add a "Global: Text area" field in the view header and use :


This will do the trick in most cases if you don't use the header for something else.

    There's a bug with this though -- it decodes encoded characters like "&" :( – atwixtor Oct 29 '18 at 3:59
