I have created a custom publishing style, asessment template and question template.
Choosing the publishing style is easy - you simply pick it in the publishinbg wizard.
Howvever, with the other templates I have followed the reccommendations from the UPK documentation:
Copy the standard template
Rename the copy
Customise the copy.
...but I can't find a way of specifying which template I want to use whilst publishing. Any ideas?
(I can copy the standard and customise the original and that works fine, but that will be overwritten as we upgrade)
It looks like the the templates act as linked documents - you can move them around in the library, and you can rename them, but it is still that template that is used when you publish.
So my question becomes - where is that document linked and can you change that link?
If you can't then the published guidance is NOT clear or accurate. What you would need to do is:
1. Copy the template to create a backup
2. Rename the ORIGINAL
3. Modify the ORIGINAL
If anyone can clarify that'd be fantastic!
Actually, if you go into the source file for the Question (in the Local Repository) then you will find a statement:<QuestionTemplate>0a9ee099-ee19-4bbf-b14b-7efefcc119d4</QuestionTemplate>. You could always manually change this. i wouldn't recommend it, but it does at least show that the functionality is theoreticaly there...
