This is probably related to Issue #1692 Devise scoped views, however, it applies to when views are generated for a specific role (e.g., admins).
The generated partial for links (admins/shared/_links.erb) is not taken, but the default one from the Gem.
I added the customized _links.erb to a new folder devise/shared/_links.erb, and this one is taken. However, it should be in admins/shared/_links.erb
According to @rodrigoflores' comment, you should be using admins/_links.erb instead of admins/shared/_links.erb, right? Can you try it out and see if it works?
@ItalianChef have you tried this?
I am closing this. @ItalianChef, if you have more news, please let us know!
