    You don’t have to add the extension subfolder “hivepress-messages”, all template parts are stored in the same “hivepress” folder. But if you just want to change the button text it may be easier to use this plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/loco-translate/ instead of overriding template parts.


    Thanks for the quick response. I want to do some other customisations as well so I am trying to get this process to work & make sure I can still keep up to date with future releases.

    I’ve tried the following folder structures (within the child theme) and none of these work 🙁

    message-send-link.php in the root of the theme…

    Time to delete all my other attempts 😂😂
