Rest API & Template overrides

Tuesday 27 March 2012 1:52:09 am - 3 replies

The Custom Output Renderers documentation mentions you can override the node/view/rest.tpl template, but this template doesn't exist, and results in an error:

 Notice: Undefined index: /node/view/rest.tpl in /kernel/common/eztemplatedesignresource.php on line 303

Adding this (empty) template into your design/<my_design>/templates/ folder resolves this issue; however it's unclear whether the default node/view/*.tpl override settings apply for this, and I can't seem to get it to output the template I want.

The URI I'm accessing is:


and the override setting is:


and the rest_pagelayout.tpl only contains {$module_result.content}.

Any thoughts?  Thanks in advance,

You are using template override condition, so in practice you have to put your template inside design/(design_name)/override/templates/product/features.tpl

You don't have to create a template in design/<my_design>/templates/. By using template override condition "source" template does not have to exist physically on disk.

Thanks for your reply, Lukas.

The issue is more that the override system doesn't seem to work in this case, ie, putting in overrides/templates/product/features.tpl doesn't actually produce the desired output.

@Geoff file a bug? I'll try to reproduce when I have time...
