I get this error when trying to populate an email template with data from within onBeforeWrite for my Order page. I want an email triggered in some circumstances when a record is saved. I have code elsewhere in the system that is loading the templates just fine, but those cases are all done from within controllers rather than a dataobject. Is there any reason I can't populate an email template from onBeforeWrite for a dataobject?

No, no reason. Both DataObjects and Controllers are ViewableData.

Did you flush?
Have you misspelt the names?

Did you accidentally edit in the wrong folder?

Further to the above, make sure you’ve set the theme in your config:

  theme: 'mythemename'
