Default community files ignores issue templates

Hi GitHub Community!

 

I'm trying to set up some default community files for my own account (`bycedric`). I've managed to get most of the things working already, like the pull request template and funding file. But, unfortunately, I haven't found a way to get the issue templates working.

 

I'm not sure if I set up my .github repo properly, but I think I did. Based on this topic and the documentation, I'd figure you have to put the issue templates in this directory .github/ISSUE_TEMPLATES/<template>. But this doesn't seems to do anything. The weird part about it is that the .github/PULL_REQUEST_TEMPLATE.md works perfectly. I've tested this within these repos:

 

 

Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

 

Happy new year 🎇

Cheers,

Cedric

Re: Default community files ignores issue templates

Same problem.

 

I've created `.github` repo with issue template lying in `.github/.github/ISSUE_TEMPLATE/` folder (so it's `.github` folder in `.github` repo, as stated in the docs).

 

`.github` repo is public, and when I try to create an issue in another repo on my account, it doesn't work. It works perfectly normal in `.github` repo though.

 

The same approach for PR template works just fine (I have `pull_request_template.md` in the root of `.github` repo).

Re: Default community files ignores issue templates

I just want to add that I am also experiencing this issue.

 

- My `.github` repo: https://github.com/jessesquires/.github

- A repo where default issue templates should work: https://github.com/jessesquires/PresenterKit
