Copy the layout files form app/design/frontend/base/default/layout to app/design/frontend/ndot/english/layout. template files app/design/frontend/base/default/template to app/design/frontend/ndot/english/template/customer.

but when i changes the file in app/design/frontend/ndot/english/template/customer/form/register.phtml, the changes is never reflecting

I think you have edited in wrong file. Customer register form file is render from the following path


So try to copy this folder path and file in your theme and check.

  • i think rwd is namespace, the rwd folder is not is mgento default.

  • If your magento version is 1.9 you have the red namespace. Or else you don't have that. Just copy the persistent/customer/form/register.phtml in you folder. Then edit the file you get the changes in frontend Commented Apr 8, 2015 at 10:49
  • my version in 1.7, i did the changes is app/design/frontend/ndot/english/template/customer/account/dashboard.phtml , this changes is reflect, but the register.phtml changes is not reflect in frontend.
