How to use a view file from other template

Recommended Posts

Good day, @teppo!

I have two templates (a and b) with different controllers, but same view file. So I want to make a use b's default view file in the render process. How do I do it?

I tried many things like the one below in the a's controller's init() method,  but without success.


For now I am doing this in views/a/default.php:

<?php namespace ProcessWire; ?>

<?php include($config->wireframe['paths']['views'] .'home/default.php'); ?>

But maybe there is a better way?

Hi @Ivan Gretsky

That's how it works for me. In your case, you can create a controller for 'b' template that extends your 'a' template, call the parent init method and then set template for the view

class PostsController extends CategoryController

	public function init()
