Hi ,How can we call a created template with a module.

I have created a template called test_pgl_logged.tpl. and called it like this and include the page in module.php and site.ini.append as well. But this doesn't work.any one have some comments ?


$Module = $Params['Module'];// Template$tpl = eZTemplate::factory();// HTTP instance$http = eZHTTPTool::instance();echo $tpl->fetch('design:sewtr/Loggedin/test_pgl_logged.tpl');?>

Hello upeksha,

Can you please share the full path to the template you wish to include?

This will help me guide you to the right way to include it.

Full path is design/standard/templates/sewtr/Loggedin/test_pgl_logged.tpl .Thank you very much.

Hello upeksha,

Your template path looks ok except your still not using a design extension (tisk tisk). You must be having some other problem, though I'm not certain what.

Perhaps if you share more information about what your doing we can better understand why your custom module view is not working correctly.

Hi upeksha

From your code above, I am not certain that $tpl variable has been initialized as an eZTemplate, the line that does it seems to have been commented out?

Please note that eZTemplate::factory returns an instance of eZTemplate (not Template).

Also note that (from my experience) changes made to custom templates called from custom modules always require cache clearing to be made visible.

Besides these notes, I totally agree with Heath, whenever you have the chance, please share more information on what happens as it does not work.

Hello lo Sol Inf,

upeksha's snippet of code just looks commented out because he just pasted it into the forum message window and did not use a custom tag for source code snippets.

I'm fairly certain that in his code the lines are not commented out and look something like this ...

$Module = $Params['Module'];
// Template
$tpl = eZTemplate::factory();
// HTTP instance
$http = eZHTTPTool::instance();
echo $tpl->fetch('design:sewtr/Loggedin/test_pgl_logged.tpl');

... and don't forget to declare your extension as a design one. For that you have to define a file in your settings extension directory  : design.ini.append.php

 <?php /* #?ini charset="utf-8"?
# transmit to eZ, to search for designs in your extension
*/ ?>
