connections_templates folder only exists to support “legacy templates”. Template are now actual plugins. So if you’re taking one of the core templates and modifying it, you will need to convert it to a plugin. This is not that difficult. Mostly you just need to add the plugin header text and change the action so the template will be registered on the
plugins_loaded hook. The next version of Connections 0.8. You can see how this is done here. I’ve already added this to the core templates so can be dragged to the
plugins folder and activated. This will allow any changes made to the core template to be update safe.
Hope that helps.
