General question: In Views 3, on Drupal 7, when a View display in configured using Views UI, what is the location where the configuration is 'read' and applied when...:
- ...creating a query to generate a page?
- ...loading its Views UI page (I believe this is the table
Background / why asking: I've encountered a very strange problem where (despite repeatedly clearing all caches including Views cache and even disabling Views caching in Views advanced settings), the output a view generates in situ in a panel / block on the page doesn't match the rules shown for it on editting it in Views UI.
Edit: Actually, looks like they are both coming from the same place but the two displays got merged and became non-overridden in a strange way. I'll keep this open as I'd like to know for sure where these are stored in the DB for future reference anyway.
It's a dev environment with no memcache / memcached / boost etc - no additional layers of caching.
There's one existing question where someone finds Views UI somehow 'loses' the override settings for a views display, but it's not related to my case: there's nothing on my general question, the cause doesn't apply in my case, and none of the suggestions there help. There's also a question which includes my general question on drupal.org but none of the replies answer my question.
