I created a custom template, node--article.tpl.php which renders my field_image field first, then shows the submission date, then displays the title and then renders the rest of the content.

This works very well in Teaser, but when I click on the node and view it in Full, the Title is rendered at the top. It is above the field_image instead of where it exists in the template. My template is just a slightly altered version of the Zen node.tpl.php. Why is the title being rendered up top instead of where it is in the template?

Here is my template:

<article class="node-<?php print $node->nid; ?> <?php print $classes; ?> clearfix"<?php print $attributes; ?>>

  <?php print render($content['field_image']); ?>

  <?php if ($display_submitted): ?>
    <p class="submitted">
      <!--<?php print $submitted; ?>-->
      <?php print $pubdate; ?>
  <?php endif; ?>

  <?php if ($title_prefix || $title_suffix || $display_submitted || $unpublished || !$page && $title): ?>
      <?php print render($title_prefix); ?>
      <?php if (!$page && $title): ?>
        <h2<?php print $title_attributes; ?>><a href="<?php print $node_url; ?>"><?php print $title; ?></a></h2>
      <?php endif; ?>
      <?php print render($title_suffix); ?>

      <?php if ($unpublished): ?>
        <p class="unpublished"><?php print t('Unpublished'); ?></p>
      <?php endif; ?>
  <?php endif; ?>

    // We hide the comments and links now so that we can render them later.
    print render($content);

  <?php print render($content['links']); ?>

  <?php print render($content['comments']); ?>

</article><!-- /.node -->

Just a thought, have you tried using Display Suite?

  • I haven't, but that looks pretty cool. Going to go check it out right now! Nov 11, 2012 at 22:42
  • So, I've got installed, removed my custom template, and I configured my node type so that it should display in the right order... but it's still showing an additional Title at the top of the page. How can I disable that Title? Nov 11, 2012 at 22:50
  • In manage display /admin/structure/types/manage/content_type/display y probably you need the full content and disable the title. If you want to see more about what you can do with display suite I recommend this link london2011.drupal.org/conference/sessions/…

  • Have you anything else which could be outputting that extra title? i.e. other modules, it's being displayed in a panel, etc. etc. Nov 12, 2012 at 13:18
  • This module doesn't really answer my question, but it's so awesome that I'm accepting this as my answer. Nov 13, 2012 at 5:30
