Calling included templates

    How would one go about modifying templates that are called using <xen:include ...>

    I tried the code events: create template & post render... and they both do not see those included templates being called.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Which template do you want to modify? Does it contain a hook?

    There's no hook in the template but it's: attached_file ... what I basically want to do is display certain extensions differently, but I want to do it without editing the template... if there was a hook, it would've been easier (or if it was called in a template code event, unless I missed something)

    I've been successful adding my own hooks in a few places and adding them to a template hook listener

    hook name="myHookName"

    I'd rather prefer to avoid editing templates.

    I'm new to using this system, and a bit leary about template edits also , so another thing I've been trying is going back to the nearest existing hook, creating my own template within the hook and assigning it to my own add-on. This way I can replace template sections leaving the default template intact.

    Yes. But there are no hooks in attached_files. I could've used a dirty hack to html replace it on template create but template create does not show the template being created.

    This is my question too. Any ideas on the cleanest way to modify a template called by xen:include
