/Drupal 8


Default theme implementation to display a single page.

The doctype, html, head and body tags are not in this template. Instead they can be found in the html.html.twig template in this directory.

Available variables:

General utility variables:

  • base_path: The base URL path of the Drupal installation. Will usually be "/" unless you have installed Drupal in a sub-directory.
  • is_front: A flag indicating if the current page is the front page.
  • logged_in: A flag indicating if the user is registered and signed in.
  • is_admin: A flag indicating if the user has permission to access administration pages.

Site identity:

  • front_page: The URL of the front page. Use this instead of base_path when linking to the front page. This includes the language domain or prefix.

Page content (in order of occurrence in the default page.html.twig):

  • messages: Status and error messages. Should be displayed prominently.
  • node: Fully loaded node, if there is an automatically-loaded node associated with the page and the node ID is the second argument in the page's path (e.g. node/12345 and node/12345/revisions, but not comment/reply/12345).


  • page.header: Items for the header region.
  • page.primary_menu: Items for the primary menu region.
  • page.secondary_menu: Items for the secondary menu region.
  • page.highlighted: Items for the highlighted content region.
  • page.help: Dynamic help text, mostly for admin pages.
  • page.content: The main content of the current page.
  • page.sidebar_first: Items for the first sidebar.
  • page.sidebar_second: Items for the second sidebar.
  • page.footer: Items for the footer region.
  • page.breadcrumb: Items for the breadcrumb region.
