Hi all,

I'm new to SilverStripe.

I have download a plugin, but I want to customize its template. Instead of going into the plugin template to change the file directly, what should I do, and what is the recommended way?

Thanks a lot.

You can make your own template / css file in your own theme or create a sub theme ( For example if you want to theme the forum template ( you can either

* Copy the default from the module (forum/templates/Layout/ to your own themes layout folder (themes/yourtheme/templates/Layout/

* Or, to keep your templates organized you can make a subtheme (themes/yourtheme_forum) which contains the file (themes/yourtheme_forum/templates/Layout/
