Support » Plugin: Widget Builder » [Plugin: Widget Builder] Custom template file not loading

  • Resolved mcdaniel.isaac


    I was trying to setup a custom template by following the steps in your readme. However, it looks like the get_template_hierarchy function in widget-builder.php seems to strip the .php extension from the custom widget.php before entering into the if block causing WordPress’ locate_template function to not find the custom file.

    Hmm I apologize for not seeing this sooner, I’m not happy that I’m not notified of new posts.

    I do see what you mean about the locate_template issue not having the extension in the file lookup. I will work on cleaning up the get_template_hierarchy method and fix the file missing ext.



    I found a hack. Just create a file (or symlink) in that same directory called “widget” Then get_template_hierarchy will find that file and return the correct file. (.php)
