Customizing Widgets in YOOtheme’s Widgetkit 2.x

Although YOOtheme’s documentation says to store customizations in Widgetkit 2.x:

Place your custom content provider in THEME-NAME/widgetkit/content/PROVIDER-NAME/
Place your custom widget plugin in THEME-NAME/widgetkit/widgets/WIDGETPLUGIN-NAME/

http://yootheme.com/widgetkit/documentation/customizing/where-to-store-your-customizations

 

It does not explain WHERE to get the original files to modify.  In Widgetkit 1.5.x, they were in:

media/widgetkit/widgets/WIDGET_NAME/

 

However, I just figured out that in Widgetkit 2.x, they are in:

administrator/components/com_widgetkit/plugins/widgets/WIDGET_NAME/

 

As an example, to customize the GRID widgetkit, you would get

administrator/components/com_widgetkit/plugins/widgets/grid/views/widget.php

and place it into 

templates/THEME_NAME/widgetkit/widgets/grid/widget.php

 

However, if not on a YOOtheme template, you have to overwrite the actual file in

administrator/components/com_widgetkit/plugins/widgets/WIDGET_NAME/

 

I verified with YOOtheme that you cannot do Widgetkit template overrides in non-Warp templates.

Hope that helps someone out.
