Override for module settings in /media/

Post by Hessi » Sat Jan 27, 2018 10:20 am

Hi Folks,

maybe I found a Bug in the Template-Manager in „Overrides“.
I’m not able to create an override, if the extension wrote it’s settings and styles in ../media/mod_modname/ instead of ../modules/mod_name/tmpl.
Many other extensions (also the overrider itself) stores the style-settings in ../media/ instead of ../modules/
JFolder: :folder: Der Pfad ist kein Verzeichnis! Pfad: /var/www/vhosts/httpdocs/tote-pixel.de/modules/mod_ninja_simple_icon_menu/tmpl
JFolder: :files: Der Pfad ist kein Verzeichnis! Pfad: /var/www/vhosts/httpdocs/tote-pixel.de/modules/mod_ninja_simple_icon_menu/tmpl
That’s correct, because there is no /tmpl/ folder in the module’s folder.

Also it is not possible to create manually an override in ../templates/template_name/html/mod_modname/ – the override will not take effect.

Actually, I put the override in my template.css, but this is not the way it should work and it is not a „clean solution“, isn’t it?

Maybe I’m completely wrong and it’s only a bug in mod_ninja_simple_icon_menu? When I tested this issue with Joomla's own extensions, I get no error-message, but there are only „default.php“ in the overrides instead of „style.css“. Shouldn’t be there a style.css?
