Since you changed the template and placed in the custom folder, it will remain the same. Your template now overrules the update, until you either change your template or remove it. If you do, you can switch to the new situation. You will need to find out what is worth more to you: keep using the old way, or migrate to the new way of doing this. Maybe you want to stick to the old way, since you have a lot of variables in your template which work very well for your situation.
