ZOO Template Overrides

When working with ZOO, we use templates to define positions for elements. Sometimes, using the default templates is not sufficient for certain features or functionality we're looking for. The way we fix this is by creating our own - this also protects from deletion when updating ZOO (if you've edited your templates).

This is a fairly simple method but can save a lot of headaches further down the track.

Navigate to media/zoo/applications/[yourapplication]/templates and download a copy of whichever template is the closest to what you'll need. Usually default will suffice.

Next, rename the folder to whatever you want to call your new template - let's use pixeltopaper

Within the pixeltopaper folder, you'll find a template.xml file. Open this and change the Name - Line 3 and Description - Line 11 to whatever the name of your template is. In this case we're changing it to Pixel To Paper.

Now you can upload your pixeltopaper folder back into the template folder.

To see how to change the template files, see here.
