Overriding confusion

Permalink
This is absolutely maddening, not to mention insanely time wasting - so I am hoping someone can point out that I am overlooking something simple.

I have a theme (Framework), and I am trying to override some of the elements and templates.

for example, I have copied

packages/c5box_framework/themes/framework/elements/footer.php

to
application/elements/footer.php
application/themes/elements/footer.php
application/framework/elements/footer.php
application/themes/framework/elements/footer.php
application/c5box_framework/themes/framework/elements/footer.php
application/c5box_framework/elements/footer.php
themes/framework/elements/footer.php
packages/c5box_framework/elements/footer.php
application/themes/c5box_framework/elements/footer.php


and a few other places I can't remember.

I have read as much as I could find on overrides...

https://www.concrete5.org/community/forums/customizing_c5/override-p...
etc

But I still have not found the answer :(

To add a new template to the page_list block, which exists in
packages/c5box_framework/blocks/page_list/templates/
I simply added a new template to
application/blocks/page_list/templates/ (even thoug hit would make a lot more sense if it was in application/c5box_framework/blocks/page_list/templates/)

But the same reasoning does not apply to package themes


Can anyone please tell me where do I put the override files for a theme that is inside a package?

I don't believe you can override element files that are in the themes folder of a package, only the ones in a package.

So /package/package_name/elements/file.php you would be able to override, but /package/package_name/theme/theme_name/elements/file.php you would not. This is because it's included with $this->inc instead of View::element

so I guess the only way to make custom templates in a package theme is to clone the entire package, rename it, then, manually update those from any updates from the original? ug
