  • Template Files Hierarchy


    We are currently using a custom template. When I FTP into the site, I can see the custom template folder, which only contains a few files.

    I assume that the system first looks in the custom template folder, then whatever templates it doesn't find there it looks for in the "common-html5" folder. So if I copy checkout-singlepage.html into the custom folder, this copy will be used and the one in "common-html5" will be ignored.

    Is this accurate?

    Yes, the common template files are fallbacks as you suspect.

      Perfect. Thanks for the reply, jleclair!

      One other question for this thread... In my common templates folder I have both a checkout-singlepage.html file and a checkout-singlepage-v2.html file. Is checkout-singlepage-v2.html something everyone has (like an update from 3dCart)? Or is this some wonky file that I need to ask my client if they created?

      Bottom line is that I need to update our checkout page template and I now need to know if I should copy/modify the "normal" template, or this "v2" one.

        The V2 is the newest checkout page. I believe it is a big improvement over the original checkout-singlepage.html. You still have to customize it a bit, but much better.
