Where is topnav.vm in JIRA 6.1.6

I was expecting topnav.vm in /WEB-INF/classes/templates/plugins/topnavigation as in JIRA 5. However it seems to have been moved in JIRA 6.1.6. Any idea where is the topnav.vm?

check files:



I am actually looking to add another image to the left of jira home icon and give it a different url link. It was possible in the earlier topnav.vm. I don't quite understand how to achieve the same with these two files.

It seems that for the logo these templates would not work.

An alternative to modifying the vm file is to inject a JS code that adds the image next to the logo. You can inject it as described here:


A sample js code:

AJS.$('h1#logo').prepend(AJS.$('<a href="http://mysite.com"><img src="https://developer.atlassian.com/s/en_GB-1988229788/4532/e44e912a19b4356578af38c61df778d5fda2d014.50/_/images/logo/confluence-logo.png" alt="My Other Cool Image"></a>'))
