Details

as doc says, I have "cp" template/en/default/* into a new template/en/custom
directory, then modified banner.html.tmpl... and I can't see my changes :(

I also tried a minor change to index.html.tmpl: not better...

obviously, changing default/index.html.tmpl works.

so, what's wrong?
Did you run checksetup.pl after adding your new templates?
that's it!

I changed summary from "can't make template customisation work" to "template
customisation documentation does not tell to run checksetup.pl" ;))

Summary: can't make template customisation work → template customisation documentation does not tell to run checksetup.pl
I'll go for that.

Ever confirmed: true
IT shouldn't have just failed silently, though. The only case where I could see
this maybe happeningis if the wbbserver has read access to the default/
template, but not the custom/ one - could that have been happening?
it is possible: install user is not apache user on our system, and we got some
403 errors (not related to this problem): may be I forgot to chown "custom"
directory before testing... 

if I chown back "custom" dir to install user, bugzilla displays default
templates: where is it suppose to log some error?

Debian install (using prepackaged .deb files from Testing build) has the same
problem, yet running checksetup.pl does NOT make bugzilla read from the /custom/
directory. May be debian-specific problem, not sure.
Added a note to both 2.16 and the tip documentation.
