I'm using Drupal 7. I want disable link on some node-title.

Like disable ''Link this field to the original piece of content'' in Views.

How can i do this? For example, via template.php?

The code that makes that happen is in node.tpl.php:

<?php if (!$page): ?>
<h2<?php print $title_attributes; ?>>
  <a href="<?php print $node_url; ?>">
    <?php print $title; ?>
<?php endif; ?>

So to override it, you just need to re-create node.tpl.php somewhere in your theme's folder, remove the <a> tag surrounding the title, and clear Drupal's caches. Then you won't get links on title for node teasers any more.

If this is too 'all-encompassing' and you just want to do it for a specific content type then as well as copying the original (unchanged) node.tpl.php into your theme's folder, create another one called, for example, node--article.tpl.php (for the article content type), and make the alterations in there instead.

  • Now, i must create node--node--20.tpl.php and override your code, right?

  • According to the Drupal 7 Theme Hook Suggestions it would be node--20.tpl.php. I think you might be thinking of page--node--20.tpl.php which would be the page template, not the node

  • Ok sorry but my node.tpl file is: pastebin.com/tg16M1Uu

  • Just replace $title_link with $title, that should sort it
