    Hi
    When you update the template it will override the files, that a normal procedure for all the template.
    For the module position if the name is removed from the templatedetails.xml file, still the position is present on your site.
    I am afraid of this local folder in the template does not work as an override for this file.
    But you can add the blocks file in the local folder and it will not be updated.

    Regards

    Thanks for your feedback.

    About blocks files, yes this is what I do from the beginning…that’s nice 😉

    But about position name, it means that it is not mandatory to add a new position name into templateDetails.xml file, I can just add it from the module even if it’s not into templateDetails.xml file ?

    Hi
    In Joomla, if you will not add the position name in the TemplateDetails.xml file, its name will not appear in the list of the module manager, But if you know the name of the position you can manually type in the module position name fields and enter it.
    save and publish.

    Ok I understand.

    And what about the file /template_name/etc/assets.xml ?

    I mean, when I need to load a new font, I add a new line into assets.xml file.
    But same problem, during template updates, this file iq sometimes overwritten.

    So is it possible to load a new font on a template, whithout lossing these changes during next template update ?

    Hi
    You can put it the etc folder in the local folder of the template to create an override for it.

    Ok perfect.

    Also other files are sometimes overwritten.
    Is it possible to override them securely without lossing changes during next template update.

    These file are for example :

    /template_name/favicon.ico

    Orother example :

    templates/ja_medicare/html/com_content/article/default.php
    templates/ja_medicare/html/layouts/joomla/content/fulltext_image.php

    How to use custom files and avoid loosing changes?

    Ok perfect I think I will be able to check this by myself

    Last info, about this file /template_name/favicon.ico, I havent seen nothing.
    do you think something like this can work /template_name/local/favicon.ico ?

    just a last question about custom.css file.

    custom.css file located by default into /template_name/css/ folder is normally not overwritten during template updates.

    So is it necessary to copy/move it to /template_name/local/css/ folder ?

    Yes, Language override is Hi
    No custom.css will not override on template update. So there is no need to create an override for this file.
