#27968 closed feature request (wontfix)

Enable the 'WP_Theme->get_page_templates' function to work to a greater depth than one.

Currently the 'WP_Theme->get_page_templates' function searches the theme directory for templates to a hardcoded depth of one. Can either a hook be provided to allow this depth to be adjusted or some other mechanism to enable altering the depth without requiring modification of the Wordpress core?

But #11216 doesn't address what I was asking. It leaves the depth at a default of 1. I was asking to be able to specify the depth greater than this.

He was just cross-referencing the original ticket.

Going more than one directory down is, I think, too much. It gets much more expensive.
