Hi All,

I have a site that uses 2 themes, one for desktop and one for mobile. I'm in the early stages so are currently just using Blackcandy for both.

I have a page class called a ProductPage. I want a common layout loaded for this that both themes can use, so I don't want to duplicate that template. So I have the following structure which I thought would work:

1. in mysite/_config.php => project = 'mysite'
2. sub-template => mysite/templates/Layout/

I assumed(and I'm sure I've done it before) that it would look in this order:

1. /themes/blackcandy/Layout/
2. /mysite/templates/Layout/
3. /themes/blackcandy/Layout/

as it is, it displays #3, #1 isn't there and it doesn't seem to be able to find #2.

Is there a way I can achieve this?
