Hey there,

can I organise the theme folder Inlcudes using subfolders? So that I can use something like

<% include myNewFolder/myIncludeFile %>

Thanks in advance.

Cheers, Mario

I don't suppose you can. You need to place templates in the root of the Layout and the Includes folders for them to be accessible from your template using $Layout or <% include xxxx %>. I tested this again just to be very sure and a simple ?flush=1 made parts of my site disappear :-(

For any other template you might use (from your code using renderWith() or populateTemplate() ) you seem to be free to use other foldernames, though I've never tested this with nested structures.
