Zettelkasten Template does not apply date and time parameters

UPDATE: Migrated to Enhance Zettelkasten prefixer to use Templates date time feature

Steps to reproduce


  • Template plugin is enabled
  • Zettelkasten prefixed plugin is enabled
  1. Create a new Template called “Baz” with the {{date}} and {{time}} variables in the template.
  2. Create a new note.
  3. Insert “Baz” template in new note.
  4. Verify that current date and time appear correctly
  5. Configure Zettelkasten prefixer “Template file location” with the newly created “Baz” template
  6. In the editor, create a new zettelkasten note.

Expected result

  1. Date and time should render correctly from the “Baz” template

Actual result

  1. Date and time are not populated and just renders the literal variables {{date}} and {{time}}
