6 docs.php hook_views_default_views_alter(&$views)

Alter default views defined by other modules.

This hook is called right before all default views are cached to the database. It takes a keyed array of views by reference.

Example usage to add a field to a view:

  $handler =& $view->display['DISPLAY_ID']->handler;
  // Add the user name field to the view.
  $handler->display->display_options['fields']['name']['id'] = 'name';
  $handler->display->display_options['fields']['name']['table'] = 'users';
  $handler->display->display_options['fields']['name']['field'] = 'name';
  $handler->display->display_options['fields']['name']['label'] = 'Author';
  $handler->display->display_options['fields']['name']['link_to_user'] = 1;

Describe hooks provided by the Views module.


function hook_views_default_views_alter(&$views) {
  if (isset($views['taxonomy_term'])) {
    $views['taxonomy_term']->display['default']->display_options['title'] = 'Categories';


This hook DOES NOT need to be in as hook_views_default_views().

Another example:

function mymodule_views_default_views_alter(&$views) {
$handler =& $views['myview']->display['default']->handler;
// now modify view

After Clear the cache .Revert the views :P
