In big projects, where many template files, full path to template input so hard.
Example:
Project structure:
Code:
layouts/
    base.tpl
modules/
    catalog/
        goods/
            inc/
                price.tpl
            item.tpl
            list.tpl



item.tpl
Code:
<h1>Good Name</h1>
{include file="modules/catalog/goods/inc/price.tpl"}


But if we have option use_relative_paths (in Smarty class), we can write simple:
item.tpl
Code:
<h1>Good Name</h1>
{include file="inc/price.tpl"}
{* If needs absolute path, start it with slash: *}
{include file="/modules/catalog/goods/inc/price.tpl"}

You can use relative paths. Paths are relative to the template_dir. I'm not sure what directory you are expecting the paths to be relative to.

If you want to use a path relative to the current template you may use this plugin to get the template's directory (smarty 2):

http://www.smarty.net/forums/viewtopic.php?p=68822

Code:

{current_dir assign=dir}
{include file="`$dir`/inc/price.tpl"}


OR if you are using smarty 3 then you may get the current directory from
$smarty.current_dir I think

I think 3.1 RC is not support relative path yet...

ex.
{include file="./subdir1/temp.tpl"}
{extends file="../subdir2/temp.tpl"}

Thanks for your reply.

I think that the following points are different.

Assuming the following constitution.

ROOT => $smarty->display('test.tpl') on here.
|
+-- subdir => base.tpl on here.
|
+-- templates => test.tpl on here.

At test.tpl:
*Until Trunk Rev.4048
{extends file="./subdir/base.tpl"} {* => work fine *}

*3.1 RC1
{extends file="./subdir/base.tpl"} {* => NOT work *}
{extends file="../subdir/base.tpl"} {* => work fine *}

So, It's only different from '.' and '..'.
Do I misunderstand...?

That's the expected behavior. The file path are relative to the folder of the calling template.

Thanks.

This behavior is same at {include}.
So, I understood that is spec change from 2.x to 3.1.
