1 Overriding your first view
If you want to override one of the views Refinery comes built with (for example, to add a phone number to the footer), you’ll need to override the view Refinery is providing. Refinery will then use your local version, rather than its original copy.
It’s easy to get a copy of this file to modify locally. For example, for the footer, just run in the terminal:
$ rake refinery:override view=refinery/_footer.html
2 Common Examples
These are files we often override when creating a Refinery site.
$ rake refinery:override view=refinery/pages/show $ rake refinery:override view=refinery/pages/home $ rake refinery:override view=refinery/_content_page
3 Tips and Tricks
- Trim the ‘.html.erb’ from the end of the view file name
- Only override when you really need to, as it makes upgrading to future versions of Refinery trickier
- You only need the path to the view from inside the ‘views’ folder, regardless of which extension the file is in
- This will also work to override views in plugins you’ve created locally
