Hi Folks,
the following causes headaches.

My SS3.1 project is in the project folder 't32base' (mysite is not used), that has a custom Page Class called "T32Page"
In this folder there is a template ''


Now i have a custom theme called 'gpl' that itself has this template.


And SS3.1 picks the template from the module folder 't32base' not the one inside the theme folder.

I also tried to place it inside a sub-theme folder


Same result. SS picks the one from the module folder.

I deleted the cache folder and flushed all several times - with no success.

Any help or ideas would be really great!

Thanks in advance,

I was checking in the codes and saw that SilverStripe 3.1.2 was looking for the template files in the following order.

1. project folder (in most cases mysite)
2. theme
3. any

So this is the problem, I am not sure why this is done like this. emailing in the google group.
