Custom Block Templates
I desperately needed to get with the times and so I have started to learn 8.5.1. Progress is slow as it is so different to 5.6.
I am trying to get Custom Block Templates working. I have followed this tutorial:https://documentation.concrete5.org/developers/working-with-blocks/w...
I have turned off overrides caching via Dashboard > System & Settings > Optimization > Cache & Speed Settings
I have created the blocks>autonav>templates>site_map_tree.php file based on the original 'view.php' (this was all as it was in 5.6)
But no matter what I do, when I click on the block and select 'Design & Custom Template', all I get is the little menu with cancel/save. None of these buttons do anything (apart from cancel/save). I do not get the usual 'select template' form.
How do I get this to work? It's doin' my nut in! Am I missing something?
If anyone can point me in the right direction, I'd be very grateful
R u using the default theme?
No, I'm not using the default template. I'm trying to make my own customized template.
Yes, I've tried the cog icon, but no joy.
In fact, it's pretty hit & miss as to whether I actually get the mini-menu to actually appear when I click 'design & custom block' from the dropdown....
So frustrating. I can't work out what I'm doing wrong :(
Which theme r u using. default theme is 'elemental'.
It's basically a blank page with Global (and non global) Areas added
This was dead easy with 5.6... don't understand why it is now so difficult.
It must be a setting I've missed somewhere. I've disabled caching as instructed. What I don't understand is why the 'design & custom template' menu is so intermittent. I now can't get it to show up at all...
Thanks for your time mate
