Hi,

Lets assume this situation. I have a ss file in the blog module:

/blog/templates/Layout/BlogHolder.ss

which I want to override. I'm using the pixelgreen theme.
So I come to think that the best way will be to create a subtheme pixelgreen_blog with the file:

/themes/pixelgreen_blog/Layout/BlogHolder.ss

But it seam that my intuition fails me and this doesn't work so I have to ask how to accomplish this correctly ? :)

Hello ,

you will in the blog another theme then in the basic site?

then look here http://doc.silverstripe.org/doku.php?id=themes:developing&s=subthemes#subthemes

But if you want change the theme you give in the mysite/_config.php the theme name
SSViewer::set_theme('pixelgreen');
