I have a view page that shows a single node based on a contextual filter that looks at an aliased path version of the title. For example my URL might be http://www.tacoland.com/resources/npr-story-about-tacos

and I want to set the page title to be NPR Story About Tacos (the node title).

I see how I can change the title with the value from the URL within the contextual filter settings, but I want it to be the proper node title.

My issue is basically like this one, but for D8: Views Page Title Based on URL

1 Answer 1

  • Add Title as field

    • ☑️ Checkmark exclude from display
  • For view title, put {{ title }}

    You're right, I'm sorry. I was just coming back here to say I realized I still had a value in the override title section of the contextual filter. Commented Aug 19, 2020 at 16:20
  • Any idea why I'm still seeing {{ title }} for the breadcrumb on this page? Commented Aug 19, 2020 at 22:49
  • That's due to a bug in core, try applying the patch in comment #44 for D8.
