Rewriting the output of a Drupal view isn't always necessary, but figuring out what to do with the available templates can very useful. It is, however, also a bit of a stumbling block from time to time, especially for newcommers. After you have created your view you will have a number of filters to restrict your data, and a set of fields which are printed by Views using a set of templates. How these templates are used depends on what sort of view data you use and style you select, but there will be three standard templates that are always used in views. These templates are display, style and row and can be treated like any other Drupal template in that you can override them with more specific filenames.
