I have been wondering for a while (after having done a couple of silverstripe based projects) if their is anyway to restructure the template folder? Currently everything has to be in includes / layout / content (?) or just in the rood of the template folder. I get the reasoning behind this yet i also find it highly annoying when you deal with numerous templates.
The structure that i normally try to make for example in the controllers is as follows:

/controller/url/(all the controllers associated with this url part) example:



I would like to be able to do something similar to the templates like:

/templates/url/includes *.ss
/templates/url/layout/ *.ss

This in my opinion would really tidy up the template folder. But i am not sure the current templating system would really allow for something like this. Seeing how fixed the structure seems.

Guess that means their is currently no way to achieve this? Without modifying a lot of stuff?
