Hello upeksha,

Can you please share the path to the 'header.tpl' template on the filesystem?

Also you should certainly remove the / from your include call, it does not belong.

Hello upeksha,

First you should not modify the default designs (at all ever).

You should create a custom design extension and move your template into this path:


Then in your template include use this:

{include uri='design:parts/header.tpl'}

Notice that include templates belong only (to my knowledge) in the templates folder and not in the override/templates folder which is why your second example fails to load correctly.

In the future only include templates in the templates/parts directory to be safe.

I hope this helps.
