Overriding Core Modules
Created 2 years ago by johnny5


I can't seem to get Pyro 3.5 to override core classes. I wish to set a different meta title on the /posts page. I'm my theme service provider I've added: protected $bindings = [ \Anomaly\PostsModule\Post\Command\AddPostsMetaTitle::class => \MyCompany\MyTheme\Post\AddPostsMetaTitle::class, ]; I have my own version of AddPostsMetaTitle within my theme folder as per above, but the title doesn;t change, even after manually clearing the Twig cache. I've also tried {% set meta_title = 'test' %} directly within my own posts template (I've managed to override module views without issue). Are there any example of overriding core modules? Thanks

These classes aren't always resolved out of the IoC container. What I do in this particular case is php artisan addon:publish posts and edit the language files I need to change the terms. Then I delete all the other files so there is only overriding for what I want to change.

@ryanthompson Thanks for the reply. How would I edit say https://github.com/anomalylabs/posts-module/blob/2.4/src/Http/Controller/PostsController.php - I have a request from a client's SEO company that posts need to have a canonical tag set. I can do this easily by editing the core file directly, but I'd to avoid this if possible.

Isn't the conical tag just the current link? If so that can be done in the metadata with something like {{ request_url() }}
