    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 instead of overriding template parts.

    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 😂😂
