JEMH - Overriding header.vm and footer.vm

Question for Andy (Hi Andy!):

I'm working on an upgrade to our main Support Jira instance which has Jira 5.0 and JEMH 1.2.83 to Jira 6.1.6 with JEMH 1.5.27. This means reworking the Template Sets and I'm running into a slight problem and either I'm missing something, or I'm doing it right.

The header.vm and footer.vm call changed from the old version where I could edit the JEMH template to reference a custom header.vm and footer.vm. With the updated version, it looks like the header.vm and footer.vm appear to be set outside of the JEMH template and when I tried to call the custom ones I'm reworking, I'm not getting that same overwrite action, so I'm being forced to edit the header/footer.vm files.

Is that the correct way to handle that with updated JEMH templates, or am I missing something?

Hello :D

Yes, the leap from 5 to 6 affects templates, or rather, to get the 'standard' look and feel you need to start again.

Currently JEMH doesnt have an abillity to modify non-event templates, such as header/footer, as these are generally 'included' through macro calls. What I need to add is that feature, such that there will be a Header/Footer TemplateSet, and a specialised macro call that will allow inclusion of TemplateSet based content.

Please watch progress on that.

Thanks Andy. I figured that was the case. I forgot to search the improvement list. Thanks for the answer.
