I am going through the “Guide to Magento Commerce” tutorial, if you will, about using custom modules. Everything seems to be fine up to the point where I try to activate the new template and then I get the following error.
I am sure the file name that is called is correct, but if I revert back to the original simple.phtml file all goes back to normal. Is the problem with my template file itself? Or am I missing something else?
Create a Newproduct folder in app/designs/frontend/default/default/templates and copy your template there.
Then magento will be able to find them.
I haven’t read the tutorial so I’m not sure what it’s telling you to do.
I create the design folder in my module hierarchy just to hold the template files for distribution.
I then have to create the directory in the templates folder(above) and copy the phtml files there
when installing the module
