    Customizing third party plugin template Link to this post

    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 (http://doc.silverstripe.org/themes:developing#subthemes). For example if you want to theme the forum template (Forum.ss) you can either

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

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