Let me start by apologizing if this has been addressed before. I’ve been looking around for information and/or instructions on how to accomplish this and I’m not being able to find anything that I’ve been able to make work with the current version. I think some of what I’ve been able to find about this is old enough that it may no longer apply.
I am trying to extend my infolog with a custom type that I have created called “Order”. I have added some custom data fields to this infolog type and they are showing up as expected in the Custom Field tab of the editor.
What I would like to do is move the entries from the Custom Fields tab to a new tab called Order and clean up the layout a little bit so it’s not just a single column list.
I have tried creating a new infolog.edit.order.xet file which I based roughly off the infolog.edit.details file I was able to download from the etemplate app. I uploaded my file through this interface and also updated tabs section of infolog.edit. I was able to see my new tab appear in the etemplate app, but it never took effect on the actual infolog editor. I also tried clearing the cache through the admin app.
Upon further research, I’m thinking the whole graphical etemplate app interface might have been deprecated and I was just changing data that my system is no longer using… which might explain why my changes had no effect that I could see.
Am I correct in thinking that I need to create a copy of the infolog.edit.xet file from the source tree, add my changes to it, and tell docker to do some overlay magic somewhere to use this file instead of the default file?
I am currently running version 21.1.20220408 that is installed on a debian system using the standard packages.
Any guidance is greatly appreciated.
