To override a particular file, first determine its canonical filename. It's defined as the path relative to the package within which the file is located; directory separators are replaced with dots.
Suppose you want to override: /plone/app/layout/viewlets/logo.pt
You would use the filename: plone.app.layout.viewlets.logo.pt
Simply drop the file in a directory and register that directory for use with jbot using a ZCML-directive:
<include package="z3c.jbot" file="meta.zcml" /> <browser:jbot directory="<path>" layer="<layer>" />
Templates in views, viewlets and portlets
Any template that is defined as a class-attribute can be overriden using jbot, e.g. those used in views, viewlets and portlets. The template overrides may be registered for any request layer or only a specific layer.
Any skin-object (e.g. images, templates) on the file system (directory views) can be overridden.
