All views templates can be overridden with a variety of names, using the view, the display ID of the view, the display type of the view, or some combination thereof.

For each view, there will be a minimum of two templates used. The first is used for all views: views-view.tpl.php.

The second template is determined by the style selected for the view. Note that certain aspects of the view can also change which style is used; for example, arguments which provide a summary view might change the style to one of the special summary styles.

The default style for all views is views-view-unformatted.tpl.php

Many styles will then farm out the actual display of each row to a row style; the default row style is views-view-fields.tpl.php.

Here is an example of all the templates that will be tried in the following case:

View, named foobar. Style: unformatted. Row style: Fields. Display: Page.

  • views-view--foobar--page.tpl.php
  • views-view--page.tpl.php
  • views-view--foobar.tpl.php
  • views-view.tpl.php
  • views-view-unformatted--foobar--page.tpl.php
  • views-view-unformatted--page.tpl.php
  • views-view-unformatted--foobar.tpl.php
  • views-view-unformatted.tpl.php
  • views-view-fields--foobar--page.tpl.php
  • views-view-fields--page.tpl.php
  • views-view-fields--foobar.tpl.php
  • views-view-fields.tpl.php

Important! When adding a new template to your theme, be sure to flush the theme registry cache!
