Tpl and layout.php question

Post by Guest » Thu Apr 28, 2005 10:41 pm

Hello all,

I am modifiying a provided template.

How to make serendipity take the index.tpl file and *.tpl files instead of layout.php file ?

Both file are provided with my template i wish to modify.

If i remove layout.php, serendipity find it in the default template. If i remove layout.php from the default template, serendipity is not able to work anymore

Thanks in advance


What version are you using?

I was wondering what version of Serendipity you were using. The way Serendipity handles templates is different depending on what version you're using.

Too bad, this is the only version provided with my internet provider modules ... I need to wait for the upgrade.

0.7.1 is hard to style, you need to upgrade to 0.8 to be flexible and use *.tpl files as documented on (Documentation > Technical Documentation > Styles).
