I want to customise the recent content widget so that it looks like the recent activity widget, however the code I need to change is in jive-macros.ftl, which is not customisable. Is there a clean way to do this? Was thinking of copying and renaming the related macros into our theme's version of recent-content.ftl, is there a nicer way?
I believe jive-macros can be themed, but you have to manually copy / paste the file into your theme from the file system. It just does not show up in the admin console as theme-able. The other option is like you said, just copy and paste the relevant code if copying the entire file does not work for you.
