I have a view page named latest and try to override the template views-view-unformatted.tpl.php by creating below templates in the theme folder

views-view-unformatted--latest.tpl.php views-view-unformatted--latest--page.tpl.php views-view-unformatted--page.tpl.php views-view-unformatted.tpl.php

but none of them works. I clear the caches, rescan template files. I use views 3 and Drupal 7.23.

Can anyone please help me override this template views-view-unformatted.tpl.php

  • quick glance suggests that the names are correct, are the permissions as well? eg, are you creating them so that your web server can read them?

  • I can override other views' default templates. Only the Style Output template is unable to override.

  • d'oh. I think you need to be trying views-view-unformatted..., eg, only one dash before unformatted. Check the suggestions via the Views UI to confirm.

In the "Advanced" section of the views configuration, click in "Theme:informaction" and you will see all the possible templates


  • I have give above in my question the possible template names from "Theme:information" and tried by creating them one by one in my theme folder but none of them works.

    You can try clicking on "rescan templates" in "Theme:information" in this way you can see if it is recognizing your template, saving the view and clearing caches.

  • I have clear the caches, rescan template files as I mention in my question but doing those doesn't pick the template from my theme folder.
