Creating A Theme - How do I alter "vanilla/views/modules/categories.php" in my theme???

edited August 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8

I have a small tweak I would like to make to the view for the Categories Module...

I can make the change in the core Vanilla file ("vanilla/views/modules/categories.php") but, since this is a theme, I need the change to live in the "themes//views/" folder (otherwise the change will be overwritten when the forum is upgraded to new version).

I have tried to do this by adding my altered "categories.php" file to "themes//views/modules/" as well as "themes//views/vanilla/modules/" but neither seem to work (may changes do not show up).

Can anyone tell me if it is possible to override the "categories.php" file in a theme???

Thank you very much.

    Doing themes/[name]/views/modules/categories.php should have worked. You could also do themes/[name]/vanilla/views/modules/categories.php. Note the transposition of vanilla and views; I did the same thing not long ago.

    hmmm... It's strange, neither of your suggestions seem to work for me. I have tried it 3 times now. Is there a cache that needs to be cleared that I don't know about?

    I appreciate your help :o)

    I've been trying to do the same thing with no success. It seems that the application module views cannot be properly overridden by the theme at this point.

    For now, I guess I will make my edits to the core files, but it would be great to have this fixed in a future version.
