Upgrade 2.5.8 to 2.5.9 custom positions in Beez20 template

Post by geertkoffeman » Wed Feb 06, 2013 5:13 pm

Found that the upgrade removed my custom positions. The modules assigned disappeared. After adjusting the "index.php" and "templatedetails_xml" files (again) all OK. Were these files substituted during the upgrade process?

Apparently, yes, which is why you should always rename and re-install the "stock" templates prior to modifying them to suit your needs...

See: http://docs.joomla.org/Creating_a_copy_ ... y_Template
Don't HACK the Joomla! core, Instead "Extend" and/or "Override."
Stay ON the update path.
