Hi all,

I've created a plugin that should replace one of the theme TPLs with its own one. I'm trying to extend the content from change_payment.tpl inside checkout from my plugin, I have used this guide to register my templates folder creating the service and the TemplateRegistration.php file. Also checked and $injectBeforePlugins is set to true in the Theme.php file but still can't see the code.

Cleared the cache hundred million times and still nothing. Everything seems to be as it should but can't get the template overwritten.


change_payment.tpl inside custom/plugins/MYPLUGIN/Resources/views/frontend/checkout

{extends file="parent:frontend/checkout/change_payment.tpl"}

{block name='frontend_checkout_payment_fieldset_description'}
    <div class="method--description is--last {if $ != $form_data.payment} is--hidden{/if}">
        {include file="string:{$payment_mean.additionaldescription}"}
        {if $payment_mean.isPurchasePaymentOption}
            <label for="{$}">{s namespace="frontend/payment_purchase_order_option/main" name="reference_number"}Referece number{/s}</label>
            <input id="{$}" name="reference_number[{$}]">

Part of my services.xml for the TemplateRegistration subscriber

<!-- Register TemplateRegistration subscriber -->
        <service id="ixis_purchase_order_option.subscriber.template_registration" class="IxisPurchaseOrderOption\Subscriber\TemplateRegistration">
            <argument type="service" id="template"/>
            <tag name="shopware.event_subscriber"/>

    The template inheritance has some issues on windows. Without a proper linux based development environment, you won‘t get it working properly.

    Ok, thanks for the information but how can i run a local shopware shop under windows without issues with the template inheritance? Is there a way or do i need to install shopware via vm or docker or should i install a linux on my pc?
