Deploying VisualForce pages that have overridden standard buttons

Hello,

 

I'm wondering if anyone has experience deploying VisualForce pages related to custom objects that have overridden default buttons and actions such as new, edit, and tab view. It seems that when we have deployed to a new org, none of our custom objects have these overridden actions.

 

The reason why I find this so curious is that it seems like it would have to be possible in order to package up an app and make it available on the AppExchange, for example. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

Hey

 

Unfortunately overriding standard buttons and actions isn't packageable. You have to do it post deployment :(
