Hi Guys,

Working on this dev site https://www.crcore.org.au/new/

Just wondering if there's a way to set up an override for the .php files in the templates/shaper_finance/features folder.

I've set up /templates/shaper_finance/html/features folder and added menu.php in there with the changes that I require however they're not taking.

This would be handy as if I need to change the core files the changes I have made will no doubt get overridden with a template update.

For context, I need to change the 'fa far-bars' icon in the menu.php file to 'fa fa-search' (this has been done - but in the core files, would much prefer an override option)

Thanks guys.

Hi,
Thanks for your suggestion. As you know currently there is no override available for those helix3 features. I'll consult this with the team and if they find that helpful they'll sure implement this.

This feature would make a lot of sense as not all the pre-set options in /features suit a clients requirements, therefore require changing.

If these files aren't overridden in a template upgrade, that's not an issue, BUT, if they are, this will potentially cause big issues for developers down the track as keeping track of which templates have what /features files overridden will become incredibly complex if you're building lots of websites as we do.

If there's an override feature by allowing developers to add these files in the /html folder, all those update issues go away.

Thanks again for your consideration of my comments, really enjoying your systems so far :-)
