    I wanted to customize some views and looking up the forum found out that theme directory serves exactly this purpose. However (maybe because I did not install the docker instance, but created a simple local installation) the theme folder did not exist. Anyway, I created it and added this directory to the TEMPLATES setting, like this:
    "BACKEND": "django.template.backends.django.DjangoTemplates",
    "DIRS": [os.path.join(os.path.join(os.path.join(os.path.dirname(BASE_DIR), 'misago'), 'theme'), 'templates')],
    "APP_DIRS": True,
    "OPTIONS": {
    "context_processors": [

    So Django finds the templates in theme.
    Is this the right way to do it in Misago, or am I missing something?

    Its only way to customize Django-generated HTML. Remember that part of UI is generated by React.js that's located in the frontend directory.

    Disable Javascript in your browser it will work that way. But with Javascript enabled you will not notice the changes you need to play with frontend using gulp watch.
