/Drupal 7


Default theme implementation to display a node.

Available variables:

  • $title: the (sanitized) title of the node.
  • $content: An array of node items. Use render($content) to print them all, or print a subset such as render($content['field_example']). Use hide($content['field_example']) to temporarily suppress the printing of a given element.
  • $user_picture: The node author's picture from user-picture.tpl.php.
  • $date: Formatted creation date. Preprocess functions can reformat it by calling format_date() with the desired parameters on the $created variable.
  • $name: Themed username of node author output from theme_username().
  • $node_url: Direct URL of the current node.
  • $display_submitted: Whether submission information should be displayed.
  • $submitted: Submission information created from $name and $date during template_preprocess_node().
  • $classes: String of classes that can be used to style contextually through CSS. It can be manipulated through the variable $classes_array from preprocess functions. The default values can be one or more of the following:
    • node: The current template type; for example, "theming hook".
    • node-[type]: The current node type. For example, if the node is a "Blog entry" it would result in "node-blog". Note that the machine name will often be in a short form of the human readable label.
    • node-teaser: Nodes in teaser form.
    • node-preview: Nodes in preview mode.

    The following are controlled through the node publishing options.

    • node-promoted: Nodes promoted to the front page.
    • node-sticky: Nodes ordered above other non-sticky nodes in teaser listings.
    • node-unpublished: Unpublished nodes visible only to administrators.
  • $title_prefix (array): An array containing additional output populated by modules, intended to be displayed in front of the main title tag that appears in the template.
  • $title_suffix (array): An array containing additional output populated by modules, intended to be displayed after the main title tag that appears in the template.

Other variables:

  • $node: Full node object. Contains data that may not be safe.
  • $type: Node type; for example, story, page, blog, etc.
  • $comment_count: Number of comments attached to the node.
  • $uid: User ID of the node author.
  • $created: Time the node was published formatted in Unix timestamp.
  • $classes_array: Array of html class attribute values. It is flattened into a string within the variable $classes.
  • $zebra: Outputs either "even" or "odd". Useful for zebra striping in teaser listings.
  • $id: Position of the node. Increments each time it's output.

Node status variables:

  • $view_mode: View mode; for example, "full", "teaser".
  • $teaser: Flag for the teaser state (shortcut for $view_mode == 'teaser').
  • $page: Flag for the full page state.
  • $promote: Flag for front page promotion state.
  • $sticky: Flags for sticky post setting.
  • $status: Flag for published status.
  • $comment: State of comment settings for the node.
  • $readmore: Flags true if the teaser content of the node cannot hold the main body content.
  • $is_front: Flags true when presented in the front page.
  • $logged_in: Flags true when the current user is a logged-in member.
  • $is_admin: Flags true when the current user is an administrator.

Field variables: for each field instance attached to the node a corresponding variable is defined; for example, $node->body becomes $body. When needing to access a field's raw values, developers/themers are strongly encouraged to use these variables. Otherwise they will have to explicitly specify the desired field language; for example, $node->body['en'], thus overriding any language negotiation rule that was previously applied.
