Hi Guys,

The Overriding of template Files seems to be not working for me.

On my Silverstripe Installation I created an own template and was trying to override it by more specific code in the mysite/templates directory.

The strange thing was, that Silverstripe started to use the from mysite/templates only after I deleted the in the themes/themename/templates directory. This should actually be the other way around, shouldn't it? (For your background information: I use SilverStripe 2.3.3 on KUbuntu 9.04). Is there a way to (at least) debug this?

After changing any template code or markup you must flush the templatecache be appending ?flush=all to your url.
