Fallback System in eZ Publish 5

Fallback System in eZ Publish 5

Wednesday 10 April 2013 10:15:24 am - 2 replies


is there any way to use the fallback system of eZ 4 in eZ 5 without using the legacy mode?

I want to have an extension with different template settings for different siteaccesss.

And each siteaccess should be able to override just the footer.html.twig part of the main template for example, if the file exists. Otherwise the standard template footer.html.twig should be used.

Thanks for your suggestions.


--- Edit ---

I found this in the symfony documentation

They describe, that i can extend bundles to override some files or to add functionality to existing functions.

Is this the way how i should do it?

When I want to replace some files of the eZDemoBundle for example I would create an own bundle and then extend the eZDemoBundle in my own bundle. After that i could replace some files in my own bundle or extend/ change functionality of the eZDemoBundle.

This is currently not possible unless you use bundle inheritance or global override (in your ezpublish/ folder).

Having this feature implemented in eZ Publish 5 is planned by for example using LiipThemeBundle. Probably in 5.2.

Thanks for your answer.

I tried the global override in the ezpublish folder and it works.

I found a detailled explanation in the symfony documentation here:

The only thing what is missing is to fall back to a longer list than one fallback template. I am looking forward for this feature in a newer version happy.gif Emoticon
