Decision time

Option 1: Override the existing template

At this point, your copy of the template will override the original. There can only be one template named "default", "modern", etc. and your theme gets the last word.

This is, by far, the easier and simpler solution because you can start customizing the template now.

Next step: Learn about the template files and how to modify them.

Option 2: Create new template(s)

If you want to create a new template from the one you just copied and add it to the list of available templates in the view editor, then you must rename it.

This requires a few more steps but it allows you to create multiple custom templates while still being able to use the plugin's templates.
