Weird Problem for Custom Template Sets

Weird Problem for Custom Template Sets
OK, I am going to do a LOT of customizations, and per Adrians suggestions, I decided to start a whole new, fresh template set, seperate from Luna. So I made (surprisingly enough!) "cartoon.

Thus, I made and use: /static/cartoon and admin/templates/cartoon

So, I set myself up to use "cartoon.custom" in default template set- cool.

I go to edit a template, and I find I need to change "cartoon" to "cartoon.custom" Again, cool. Just rn.

But now I am finding all my "stuff" is getting split! All my templates are now in

admin/templates/cartoon.custom

but globals.txt is going to

admin/templates/cartoon

(I am thinking language.txt, too.)

When I go to "Teplate Globals" I only have "Luna" and "cartoon" as choices- I cannot get this to go over to "cartoon.custom"

So, I can keep a "cartoon" and a "cartoon.custom"- but that seems silly. And confusing (and trust me, I am confused enough already!!!! Wink)

As a suggestion, you may want to add a "Build Custom Template Set" or something, to automatically set up a custom template set...

I wonder if this is the "issue" where in the setup->build area, when you pick a default template set, it prompts for a bunch of .custom type stuff, that is *DIFFERENT* from the select list you see when you are editing the templates and want to switch sets.

Maybe a path or config option is set wrong in the core?

I have sorted it out, at least for how I am going to work. I HOPE this is right!

I stay with "cartoon.custom"

Then, I just HAVE to make sure when I edit templates, I switch to "cartoon", because the system makes me go into "cartoon.custom"
