This is an issue I'm dealing with for a while. In a nutshell, I wish to completely change the way the Fields of a DataObject in the CMS (backend) are displayed, for one specific DataObject (which may be controlled by using a ModelAdmin subclass or via a subclass of LeftAndMain). I think I tried all possible ways of overloading templates etc. without that much of success. So, am I missing the obvious? Your help will be highly appreciated.
