Links to Additional Views Disappear in SharePoint 2013 When OOTB Style is Applied

Here’s some magic for you. If you add an out of the box style to a view of an App (list or library) the links to the views disappear. We are not talking custom code here. We’re talking about selecting a view style from the Style drop-down.

Surprise!

View with no Style added.

View Links

Add Style.

Add Style

Select Style

Links to additional views are missing.
Style is applied, but your links to additional views have disappeared.

You can still get to the additional views by clicking on the List or Library tab, and clicking the drop-down for Current View:

This is NOT the type of behavior I expected. How about you?

Please comment if you see different behavior in your uncustomized environment.

  1. 2013 is full of annoying things like this…

  2. I found many instances of this and other weirdness with the view style “Shaded” when migrating MOSS 2007 sites to Office 365/SharePoint Online Sites. I never had time to look for a cause.

    Yep. I experienced the same. Had to resort to default style along with CSS through Content Editor Web Part for alternate rows shading while retaining the default views on top of the list.

  4. Magnificent web site. A lot of helpful information here. I’m sending it to several friends ans also sharing
    in delicious. And certainly, thanks on your
    effort!

    You can add a CEWP with the following piece:

    .ms-alternating { background-color: darkred }

    To get the shaded rows and also have the views.

  6. Gary says:

    Leave list view as default and insert a script editor and paste this code, change the background color to one that suits

    .ms-alternating
    {
    background-color:bisque!important;
    }

    Yeah SharePoint is doing nothing to improve it’s history of being more than rough around edges. The quality of SharePoint as a product seems to be as low as ever. I’d hate to see the code base for this behemoth. A bandaid on a bandaid on a bandaid.
