I have set up a Hugo (0.58.3) site using the Academic theme. I am now customizing some of the page templates for specific content categories. I wanted for example a custom template for publications. The Academic theme comes with a default template in

This template does however make use of a partial
page_header.html, which I also wanted to change. I followed the same approach, i.e. I replaced the original
