CakePHP: Many views – one controller

July 4, 2007 | By | 2 Replies More

If you want multiple controllers to be able to share a view, do this:

  1. Put the shared views in the views/common directory
  2. Call a shared view like this: $this->render(‘../common/view_name’);

    Thanks, AD, this looks like it will work great when you want all the views for a controller to come from a certain folder. The other way might be more efficient if you want some views to come from the default view folder and some to come from the common folder.

    … Or
    $this->viewPath = ‘name of view folder’;
    $this->render(‘name of file only’);
