I've tried a couple of methods to override WidgetAreaEditor.ss (a template file in the Widgets module), but nothing seems to be working. Obviously I don't want to edit the core module files.

I've tried:

- Placing a copy of WidgetAreaEditor.ss in themes/[mytheme]/templates
- Placing a copy of WidgetAreaEditor.ss in themes/[mytheme]_widgets/templates

The second method is mentioned here: http://www.silverstriperesources.com/articles/customising-a-theme-using-sub-themes/

Any suggestions?
