I'm experiencing a bunch of oddities related to Views 3.3 (D7.12). This makes me wonder whether I run short of Views education or it's just an oddity of my installation. Let me list the annoyances:
- A title set up for a View (page display) won't show up in the output. Not even in the markup. Another - very similar view, row-themed as well, does not suffer from that.
- A view with exposed filter has two header
Global: Text fields- set up to display: one with empty results, the other - for non-empty results only. Neither will ever show up.
- The same view has a
Global: Result summaryfield, set to display
@totalof result set. To no avail. (I know there are raw PHP ways to do that, but why resort to raw code if there's a built-in feature supposed to do just that.)
none of these views uses aggregation or grouping, pretty I have googled and searched through Drupal Answers almost all last night long and did not find a working answer. Anyone been hit by any of the above?
My understanding is that if I use a row-style theming with tpl files like:
views-view-fields--[view-name]--page.tpl.php, I'm only making myself responsible for the "foreach" part of the output, and the global fields (title, header, footer) should be rendered by the core Views engine. To verify, I tried to remove the tpl file, rescan, flush cache - the global fields did not show up whatsoever.
So, what is the secret...?
