According to the Yii guide when you create a theme you need to have Views under that theme for your controller to use. I have a module with Views, module/views/login, but if I want a new theme, I need to copy these module views into the new themes folder. Doesn’t this go against the Don’t Repeat Yourself Yii principle? I know your theme will use the default view (module/views/login) if theme/views/login doesn’t exist, but if my new theme needs additional HTML elements and CSS classes, then it seems like you are forced to copy the login view to the new theme directory. My concern is if you want to add a “Remember Me” checkbox on the login form down the road, you then have to add it to the module/views/login file and it’s corresponding file under your theme.
Am I missing something here?
