# AskBot v0.10.2: How to update footer.html ...

This post is a wiki. Anyone with karma >100 is welcome to improve it.

Hello Friends:

I'm trying AskBot v0.10.2.

Just FYI that I saw this solution from a long while ago, but maybe it no longer works:

If you activate the OpenStack theme/skin, the footer is located here (after running python manage.py collectstatic):

${ASKBOT_HOME}/static/openstack/templates/widgets/footer.html  1. When I edit that file, it doesn't change on the site no matter what I do. I have tried clearing caches everywhere, too. (By the way, I'm using nginx and uWSGI). 2. Next, I tried using the custom footer LIVESETTINGS option, and pasting in a trivially edited version of that same footer.html file, and again absolutely nothing changes on the site. (Note: I'm open to suggestions on clearing out nginx, uWSGI and askbot's caches, in case I did something incorrectly). What am I missing on how to change the footer? It refuses to update. Thank you! =:) edit retag close merge delete ## 1 Answer Sort by » oldest newest most voted I figure it out. Answer: I personally use the ASKBOT_EXTRA_SKINS_DIR and STATICFILES_DIRS to add additional templates, including the OpenStack template. So with that said, the solution is: 1. vi${ASKBOT_EXTRA_SKINS_DIR}/openstack/templates/widgets/footer.html (Make your modifications).
2. cd \${ASKBOT_HOME}
3. python manage.py collectstatic --settings live (Note: I inherit from settings.py into live.py).

And that works. Note that every time you make an update (i.e. perform step-1), you'll have to follow it up by doing steps 2 and 3, as well.
