I am using the ThemeKey module to change the theme for mobile users. I have a custom View Mode called Mobile to display different content. I would like to have when my mobile theme is loaded for the node to use the Mobile View Mode that I created instead of the Default View Mode.

I would like to do this in the theme. Either hooking into the theme with a module or just placing the php in a template override.

Thanks!


Ok I found a few items that get my closer to what I am needing. I just can't seem to get it to work. I am testing this idea with the teaser for now.

<?php
$rendered_teaser = render(node_view(node_load($nid), 'teaser'));
?>

By using the node number I am able to get it to print in the page.tpl.php file fine. But I am wanting to get the node I am on and convert the view mode from full to teaser.

<?php
$rendered_teaser = render(node_view(node_load(2), 'teaser'));
?>

I found that information be reading the links below. I am still not able to get it to work but close. For some reason I get errors. I think it has to do with me placing it in the node.tpl.php and the page.tpl.php template file.

And I got it working. Any comments appreciated. I placed this on the top of the page.tpl.php.

<?php 
$nid = $node->nid;
if ($nid) {
 $nid = $node->nid;
 $rendered_view = node_view(node_load($nid), 'teaser');
} 
?>

And I placed the print rendered_teaser where I wanted the node view to be printed.

<?php 
if ($nid) {
 print render($rendered_view);
} 
 else {
  print render($page['content']);
 }
?>
  • If I use a node number (2) instead of $nid it works perfectly in the page.tpl.php. – PoeticNinja Sep 5 '12 at 15:48
  • By using $nid = $node->nid; I am able to get the current node ID. – PoeticNinja Sep 5 '12 at 16:03

Since your mobile theme is a different theme a viable alternative is to just use the same display modes everywhere and then theme that display mode differently by overriding the node.tpl.php file differently in each theme.
