Now my problem is I can’t get it to render the main.php backend layout file eg. /protected/backend/views/layouts/main.php. Instead it is still rendering the frontend layout file eg /protected/views/layouts/main.php
How can I change this? Is it possible? I followed the exact steps in the cookbook.
After reading that issue i think that the issue will only apply if one will use the CRUD to generate the application. If the OP did use the CRUD command then all he has to do is change the hard coded layout property in the Controller class.
