(Drupal 8.2.4, using a custom theme that has 'stable' as the base.)

I'm not sure if I've broken something, but (having rebuilt the cache etc.) the FILE NAME SUGGESTIONS section is missing entirely from the Twig debugging for view pages:

<!-- THEME DEBUG -->
<!-- THEME HOOK: 'views_view' -->
<!-- BEGIN OUTPUT from 'core/themes/stable/templates/views/views-view.html.twig' -->

… when I copy the template from stable to my theme and give it a more specific filename (for a view with a machine name of "gifts"), I get this:

   x views-view--gifts.html.twig
   x views-view--gifts.html.twig
   * views-view.html.twig


a) doesn't list any of the other options (i.e. ID, display type)
b) has the same entry repeated twice

Any ideas?


wturrell created an issue. See original summary.

Remove question about listing possible templates in UI, as supposedly views_templates module does that – unable to install it, will ask elsewhere

@wturrell not a clue about what's going on, but moving this to the right queue.

I'm having the same issue with Drupal 8.3 and I'm using the Bootstrap theme as the base module:

<!-- THEME DEBUG -->
<!-- THEME HOOK: 'views_view' -->
<!-- BEGIN OUTPUT from 'sites/all/themes/bootstrap/templates/views/views-view.html.twig' -->
<div class="view view-paragraph-news-listings view-id-paragraph_news_listings view-display-id-paragraph_news_listings_page js-view-dom-id-dd4f956a8b1b10f46748a20333105731585c11cc58ff9e1c0f267d126b3e2f6d">
