I am trying to override the field rendered in a view. The field name is: this_is_field

I copied the /core/modules/views/views-view-field.html.twig and placed it my theme folder.

I renamed with both methods below


I have turned on Twig debugging and still the copied template isn't working.

Am I renaming wrong?

  • The first method worked like a charm. How about the second...meaning what is the [view-name]? – pierostz Dec 3 '18 at 10:11
  • @pierostz the name of your view, if your view is called "Cool Items" then you add there cool-items – No Sssweat Dec 3 '18 at 10:18
