hi,

im trying to override featured articles... but something is going wrong.

when i put default.php and default.xml to
html/com_content/featured/
default.php - override core
but default.xml - NOT - so I can't add some new params

when i change name to new_default.php and new_default.xml
in html/com_content/featured/
new_default.xml - override core and i have new position in Menu Manager:Menu Item Type.

but new_default.php -NOT- and I see oryginal default.php rendered.

The answer is stupid and awesome.
Your file's name can be
somethingawesome.xml
somethinawesome.php
somethingawesome_item.php
somethingawesome_link.php

If you add _ in some part, it's not work!
