While working on your theme, we may often need to change modules, specifically their templates, appearance and scripts. Of course, theoretically we can do it right in the module folder, but after you update Prestashop, all of the changes will be overwritten by new files. Therefore, it is better to rewrite the module files in your theme. We can do this by placing the overridden module files at a specific path in our theme. In Prestashop 1.6 and 1.7 this happens in a similar way, but there are some nuances of which I’ll tell you below.
Eight countries, four language versions, special payment, taxation and delivery systems for every webstore, French as the main language of the project, custom Magento 2 development, WIZAM integration. Sounds too difficult for someone, but not for BelVG team. We are fond of interesting and complex projects and Girard Sudron webstore development was exactly like that.
