Overriding the base theme object.tpl with a sub theme

Hi All,

Newbie to Drupal. Added the theme Tao to my drupal installation, then created a sub-theme using Skeleton.

Copied over the tpl files from the Tao install and everything is overriding the base theme great apart from the object.tpl file?

Ive googled everything and tried loads of functions in my template.php file for skeleton but nothing is workin. I make a change in Tao object.tpl and i see the change, i do it in the Skeleton.tpl and nada.

Its actually driving me insane lols! Drupal has not been easy to get to grips and I’m struggling, so any help would be great.

I tried variations of this in my skeleton template.php but it didn’t work, whether this was right or not who knows 🙂

function skeleton_theme() {
$items = array();

$items[‘comment_wrapper’] = array(
‘path’ => drupal_get_path(‘theme’, ‘skeleton’) .’/templates’,
‘template’ => ‘object’,

return $items;
