I have a node template named node-"content-type-name".tpl.php which overrides the default node.tpl.php for this content type.

But this template file is applied to also node revision pages. Is there anyway I can apply the node template file to just node view/edit page without revision page?

I don't have a D6 site around with revisions enabled so I can't test this, but the following code should disable the custom template for the revision pages:

function MYTHEME_preprocess_node(&$vars) {
  $template_name = 'node-content-type-name';

  // Work out if we're on a revision page
  $on_revision_page = arg(0) == 'node' && is_numeric(arg(1)) && arg(2) == 'revisions';

  // See if the rogue template file is available as one of the suggestions.
  $template_index = array_search($template_name, $vars['template_files']);

  if ($on_revision_page && $template_index !== FALSE) {
    // Remove the rogue template file from the suggestions.
  • Thanks for the code but it doesn't work and throw this error warning: array_search() expects parameter 2 to be array, null given in for this line $template_index = array_search($template_name, $vars['template_files']);
