Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » Woocommerce template overriding isn't working in my Child theme

    Hello Woocommerce Forum folks.

    I’m trying to override a woocommerce template in my child theme, and I’m following the recommendation in http://wcdocs.woothemes.com/codex/template-structure/ to the letter.

    That said, it isn’t working — when I jump to the woocommerce my-account page while not being logged in, I get the usual Sign-In / Register page (as expected). However, it keeps pulling form-login.php from the plugin directory, and not from my child theme directory.

    Here’s how it’s set-up:

    (1) Woocommerce login template is in:
    wp-content -> plugins -> woocommerce -> templates -> myaccount -> form-login.php

    (2) Woo Theme “Whitelight” is installed in:
    wp-content -> themes -> whitelight

    (3) My child-theme for the Whitelight theme is installed here (and works just fine):
    wp-content -> themes -> whitelight-dalluva-child

    (4) I have copied form-login.php in (1) above into my child theme directory, as follows:
    wp-content -> themes -> whitelight-dalluva-child -> woocommerce -> templates -> myaccount -> form-login.php

    When I load the login/register page, I know it’s pulling from (1) because I can edit that original template file and see the results in the display.

    I must have something basic missing, but I’m following the Woo recommended procedure for overriding a template file (as in http://wcdocs.woothemes.com/codex/template-structure/).

    Anyone see something obvious I’m missing?

    Many thanks in advance.
    Michael
