[SOLVED] Overriding a module on Prestashop 1.7

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm trying to create a copy of some modules tpl file, because I need to make changes to some modules and I prefer not to edit the original files.

I'm trying to do this on PS1.7.4 but I don't understand how to do this correctly.

For example i tried creating a copy of this file:


So i put this file into this folder:


But there's something not working properly, because after copying the file, with no modify in it, there's some problems with the layout of the newsletter block.

The same problem also with other modules, and also with files that are into the main folder of the module.

Any help?

Thank you Ourgon,

after more investigation i found out that the problem was caused by some file of the module saved into the classic template folder, while I was using a child template based on it.

how can i override module template files in child theme of classic theme? Should i delete files from classic theme or is it enough to upload the same files to child theme and change it?
