Is it possible to override templates?
I'd like to make some minor changes to Persona's templates. Is there any guidance available on how best to go about this?
Yep, simply creating a template with the same name in a plugin works.
In the plugin.json, tell it where your templates are located, e.g.
And then if any file name in your plugin's 'templates' directory matches a template name in your theme's 'template' directory, yours will override it.
it will override
You might need to clear your browser cache though, not sure how to fix that.
@yariplus that sounds pretty straightforward. My only question is plugin.json, where would I find that file? Is it in /path/to/nodebb/ or must I create a new plugin?
The way I did it is with a new plugin. I don't think there's any other way at the moment.
@yariplus great, thanks for your help.
Keep in mind that because you are overwriting the template provided by the selected theme, if there are updates to that template, you will not receive them.
Just a friendly warning
@julian Got ya. Thanks for the heads up
