Drupal7 & Views 7.x-3.3 My site installation of Views has several working Views. There is a strange behavior in the GUI and its very annoying. After editing an item, Views always goes back to the first display!?!

For example, the included example view, "Front page (Content)", has two displays, Page & Feed. To recreate this annoyance edit the Front Page View, then:

  1. Select the display Feed;
  2. Edit any item, such as: Display name: / Page /
  3. Make changes, then save;

Page refresh returns to Front Page's View edit page, and in my installation the Feed display is no longer selected. Now the Page display is selected. This happens every time for all Views. After editing an item in one display, the page refreshes back to the first display (at left). This was not the case with Views 2 and Drupal 6. Its the equivalent of changing tabs after saving something.

  • I'm not showing this behavior with 3.3 or 7.x-3.x-dev – keva Apr 30 '12 at 18:41
  • Hmm. er...yay! At least views isn't broken. Thanks for your post... – xtian Apr 30 '12 at 18:43
  • I had this problem with views in D6, but there in not like this problem in D7 – Mohammad Ali Akbari Apr 30 '12 at 21:27
  • What's really strange is I've uninstalled and reinstalled the views module with several times troubleshooting another problem. How could this problem persist each time? – xtian Apr 30 '12 at 21:58

Its just a bug of views/settings/advanced and the setting "Disable JavaScript with Views".

At the time of asking this question, I was troubleshooting errors in the Views plugin Draggableviews that were appearing in the Views UI.

Related to this is another bug where its impossible to remove a Filter Criteria value without JavaScript enabled.
