[Solved] Flask – How to change the directory of the templates folder?

quinnyprincesslmfao Asks: Flask – How to change the directory of the templates folder?
I am trying to change the directory of my Flask Templates folder. I have tried this:

template_dir = os.path.abspath('../website/endpoint')
app = Flask(__name__, template_folder=template_dir)
def tt_sotd():
return render_template("sotd.html")

This code, however, creates the following error:

return render_template("sotd.html")

Another handy thing to have is the directories, so here you have it.


I have no clue what is wrong, and how this works. I read some things online about changing the Flask directory but it does not work.

If more information is needed, please let me know. I hope someone can help me figure this, as I have no clue myself.
