hello,

i copied cms/templates/PageCommentInterface.ss to themes/mytheme/templates/Includes but the site is still using cms's one :(
If i remove cms/templates/PageCommentInterface.ss everything is OK. It looks like mytheme ss file has not higher priority :(

other templates working fine from mytheme folder.

regards

You should keep your paths the same

Eg cms/templates/PageCommentInterface.ss -> Should go to themes/yourtheme/templates/PageCommentInterface.ss not in the Includes folder

thanks will,

helped.

i would like to have structure of themes like this: themes/travelpoint/templates/Modules/cms/ and here same files as in cms/templates... With this construction arent working "root" teplates, only these included in folders (layout, includes...)... if i place content of cms/templates/ folder into themes/travelpoint/templates/Modules/cms/templates/ everything is OK.

is this bug or behaviour?

regards

I have never tried this but normally when you want to theme modules you create a 'yourtheme_modulename' folder in themes. SSViewer looks for this folder first for the file, if it doesn't exist then it defaults to the modulename/ folder so I believe you *could* possibly create a yourtheme_cms/ folder then inside that have css/ images/ templates (just like the root theme) and then inside templates have the templates you wish to override.

Most of the time however people just keep the cms templates they wish to override in the root theme.
