Override existing admin page template


Recommended Posts



I cant figure out how to use this in my module. I would like to override or add additional block in orders/_product_line.tpl.


Im looking at prestashop documentation: Using helpers to overload a back-office template ,but how to use this??


{extends file="helpers/options/options.tpl"} 
{block name="after"}    <p style="color:red;text-align:center;">Block after : add a text after the form</p>{/block}

  • override/controllers/admin/templates/orders/: overloading folder for templates that already exist in admin/themes/default/template/controllers/orders/

So I should put _product_line.tpl file in modules/mymodule/override/controllers/admin/templates/orders/ with only this code , but what exactly I must extends? {extends file="_product_line.tpl"} ?


I have tried to copy a orginal _product_line.tpl file add manually code to file and put it to: mymodule/override/controllers/admin/templates/orders but nothing..


Ech, I really need to solve this. Thanks for any help or code example, advice.


Best regards!

Your module need not to override thru the override folder.

Your module define its own views/admin/... structure and extends or superceed the native template...

Within your controller you just access your template first

Thank you for clarifying that.


Suppose I'd like to override:


I've moved my list_footer.tpl to:


and installed my module, but nothing changes. What did I do wrong?


My mistake, I've discovered here the list_footer.tpl should be placed in:


but after reinstalling the module still no changes ;/

Well I am confused ... dont you need some controller to "energize" your changes?

I mean you plan to add something on the page this something need data? where they come from?


If all you need is some design changes, you don't need a odule at all and in that case, yes you override the admin theme thru the override folder
