Plugin to overwrite CoreBundle Views (ChatGPT failed)

A customer came up with the request to make the LeftPanel more “sexy” - so who am I to deny such wishes. :slight_smile:

I’ve created a Plugin and involved ChatGPT to support me. It’s fun, but we failed.

I hope someone can help me with the Code we came up with.

  1. I’ve created a folder: plugins/MyPluginBundle/
  2. I’ve created the MyPluginBundle.php with the following content:
  <?php
  
  declare(strict_types=1);
  
  namespace MauticPlugin\MyPluginBundle;
  
  use Mautic\PluginBundle\Bundle\PluginBundleBase;
  use Symfony\Component\DependencyInjection\ContainerBuilder;
  
  class MyPluginBundle extends PluginBundleBase
  {
      public function build(ContainerBuilder $container)
      {
          parent::build($container);
          $container->setParameter('mautic.template.path', '/plugins/MyPluginBundle/Views/');
      }
  }
  1. I’ve created a folder /plugins/MyPluginBundle/Config and a config.php with the following content:
<?php

declare(strict_types=1);

return [
    'name'        => 'Test',
    'description' => 'Powered by ChatGPT',
    'version'     => '1.0.0',
    'author'      => 'ChatGPT and me',
    'routes'      => [
    ],
];
  1. I’ve copied /app/bundles/CoreBundle/Views/LeftPanel/ to /plugins/MyPluginBundle/Views/LeftPanel/
  2. Cleared cache
  3. Nothing happend

What did I do wrong? Is this even possible?

Thank’s alot for you help - very very appriciated.

ChatGPT is great, however kind of limited in how deep it can go towards plugin creation or modification.
