I want to override Mage_Sales_Recurring_ProfileController in my custom module.

My /etc/config.xml

                        <Namespace_Module before="Mage_Sales">Namespace_Module</Namespace_Module>

and my controller file


class Namespace_Module_Sales_Recurring_ProfileController extends Mage_Sales_Recurring_ProfileController
   public function indexAction()
       // custom code

But the control doesnt go in the overriden controller, but the core controller only.

Can anyone tell the reason why.

You can do one (and just one) of the following.

  1. Put your controller in Namespace/Module/controllers/Recurring/ProfileController.php and name the class Namespace_Module_Recurring_ProfileController. (I recommend this one).
  2. Change in config.xml this <Namespace_Module before="Mage_Sales">Namespace_Module</Namespace_Module> to this <Namespace_Module before="Mage_Sales">Namespace_Module_Sales</Namespace_Module>. You should use this only if you override multiple controllers from multiple modules in your module. This helps you group the controllers better. If you only override controllers from Mage_Sales, there is no need to do this. Go with the first approach.
