    Delete it? It should fallback to the "default" magento file. BUT, functionalities added by your extension might be lost. What is the extension you're talking about? Aug 6, 2015 at 12:19
  • @JulienLachal the extension is related to multivendor site , its required..... Aug 6, 2015 at 12:38

Make copy of your extension addtocart.phtml and place it in you theme.



Then do your changes in above file as you did in app/design/frontend/default/em0113/template/catalog/product/view/addtocart.phtml. So won't affect the extension functionality.

Or else as @Julien Lachal said, delete that extension file(addtocart.phtml).

    no no no, I didn't say to delete the extension good sir, I merely suggested that he deletes the .phtml, maybe that wasn't clear :p Aug 6, 2015 at 12:40
