  2. This will be removed when you upgrade however. I suggest you app\code\local\Mage\Contacts\controllers\IndexController.php and edit that file

Odoo: Qweb Templates Cache Issue

Hi Everyone, Today I was working on a hotel booking template in Odoo and changes made in the Qweb template(.xml) were not reflecting on updating module with odoo service restart. Tried few times without any success :(. Finally, I decided to delete the old template from Odoo backend and then update module again and it worked like a charm!! :) Steps to delete template from backend: Settings --> User Interface --> Views --> Search by template name Delete the used template. Although it's a small post, but I'm sure it will meet the purpose and help someone in the future. Thanks!!!

Odoo/OpenERP: one2one relational field example

one2one relational field is deprecated in OpenERP version>5 but you can achieve the same using many2one relational field. You can achieve it in following two ways : 1) using many2one field in both the objects ( http://tutorialopenerp.wordpress.com/2014/04/23/one2one/ ) 2)  using inheritance by deligation You can easily find the first solution with little search over internet so let's start with 2nd solution.
