    I’m having trouble overwriting “overview.php” in /templates/dashboard/reports. I put it under /themes/mytheme/wc-vendors/dashboard/reports, but it’s not overwriting.

    I’ve already overwritten “product-edit.php” in /templates/dashboard. I put under /themes/mytheme/wc-vendors/dashboard, and it works just fine.

    What am I missing?

    Aah, it appears there’s an error in the template that will cause it to not load. We’ll have that patched up for next release. But never fear, it’s a really easy fix and you can do it right now.

    Copy over /dashboard/dashboard.php into your template folder. The paths are relative in it, so just by copying this file, your new overview.php will then be detected and used. That should fix it!





    I see, but now reports.php won’t load unless I copy that one over too. And I don’t even need to change that one.

    I haven’t tested it, but I suppose it’s possible that the files in the “order” folder won’t work either unless I copy all of those as well, given that they’re also in a subfolder beneath dashboard.php.

    Good point. Just copy over reports too then. You dont have to “change” anything to copy them. 🙂

    The stuff in /orders/ should call correctly because we use:

    wc_get_template( 'order_note.php', array( 'time_posted' => $time_posted, 'note_text' => $note_text ), 'wc-vendors/dashboard/order/', $this->base_dir . 'templates/dashboard/order/' );

    ….to fetch the template, where as in the dashboard.php file we did not (oops).


    Ok, I’ll leave as-is for now and try to remember to delete my unmodified dashboard.php and reports.php after you implement the fix.
