[GeoNode-users] Template extension over multiple apps

Hi everyone,

I know that it sounds more of a Django related question, but as a non Django expert I'm a bit confused about the ways to extend templates.

The problem
In a development environment, suppose we have created a new app and suppose we call it app1; we can customise the page look by editing site_base.html for global parts, index.html or other specific templates, knowing that site_base will extend base.html from geonode/templates folder, and so on.
What if we create another custom app and we call it app2: how can we define templates that could inherit from what was already defined by app1?

The directory tree looks like this:

            -site_base.html (extends base.html)
            -site_index.html (extends index.html)
            -new_template => how to extend site_base.html?

The issue I'm facing is that as soon as I enable context_processors in my settings.py, I get an error because the Geonode base.html template is not found (from extends base.html in geonode/base/templates/geonode_base.html).
I tried using different configurations with loaders like app_namespace or apptemplates with no luck.

Do you have any suggestions for solving this?
