Welcome to Drupal Answers

Drupal Answers is a Q&A site for Drupal developers and administrators. It's built and run by you as part of the Stack Exchange network of Q&A sites. With your help, we're working together to build a library of detailed answers to questions about Drupal.

We're a little bit different from other sites. Here's how:


Ask questions, get answers, no distractions

This site is all about getting answers. It's not a discussion forum. There's no chit-chat.

Just questions...

...and answers.

up vote

Good answers are voted up and rise to the top.

The best answers show up first so that they are always easy to find.

accept

The person who asked can mark one answer as "accepted".

Accepting doesn't mean it's the best answer, it just means that it worked for the person who asked.

View mode for specific bundle

up vote 14 down vote favorite

Drupal 7 makes it quite easy to create a new view mode (see this tutorial for instance), but is there a way to define a view mode that is only available for a specific bundle (content type)?

No.

View modes are specified per entity type, not bundle, as hook_entity_info() shows.

It is also not possible to define extra fields which are only available for a specific bundle/view mode combination, only per bundle.

The Drupal contrib module Entity View Mode lets you create view modes and specify for which specific bundles: Article, Basic page, etc.


Get answers to practical, detailed questions

Focus on questions about an actual problem you have faced. Include details about what you have tried and exactly what you are trying to do.

Ask about...

  • Drupal development/theming how-tos
  • Site troubleshooting
  • Site-building how-tos

Not all questions work well in our format. Avoid questions that are primarily opinion-based, or that are likely to generate discussion rather than answers.

Questions that need improvement may be closed until someone fixes them.

Don't ask about...

  • Anything that doesn't require Drupal expertize to answer it
  • Tutorials, documentation, modules, themes, or distributions you need to find or you ask us to recommend or suggest
  • Recommendations for hosting
  • Requests for writing code from scratch
  • Comparing Drupal with other CMS's, blog software, or similar software

Tags make it easy to find interesting questions

All questions are tagged with their subject areas. Each can have up to 5 tags, since a question might be related to several subjects.

Click any tag to see a list of questions with that tag, or go to the tag list to browse for topics that interest you.

OK, I sort of expected this answer. Thanks for confirming that it can't be done. - marcvangend Jun 22 '11 at 19:42
