extensions to extend extensions - Am I on the right way?

Thursday 28 June 2007 2:47:58 pm - 2 replies


I want to modify the behavior of the ezwebin extension. For example, I don't want the image upload in the user/register dialog, and I don't like some of the translations, which I want to replace by different ones...

I would like to avoid putting my modifications inside this extension, because I fell it will make it too difficult to keep up with further releases.

I thought that the least intrusive and best way would be to write another extension that also for example defines a user/register.tpl, its translations etc..., and that replaces those of the ezwebin extension.

I don't know if it is possible to 'extend' an extension through another extension this way.

Any hints or tips would be great!

Thanks in advance,

yes it is, but you have to make sure that 'your_extension' is before ezwebin in the ActiveExtensions list in override/site.ini

But for overriding the design elements you should have a 'your_design' and define it as the primary design in your frontpage siteaccesses site.ini.

Hi André,

your advise to modify the include order of the extensions in the settings/override/site.ini.append.php worked immediately and made my day!

Thanks a lot,
