This could be handled one of several ways, as discussed in IRC:

1. A bundle of editable sysprefs for editing the header/footer of the slips. Configurable by branch.

2. gmcharlt suggests it might be a candidate for HTML::Toolkit. I'm not sure what that means but is another way to handle it.

3. Addition of jquery framework to the moremember-receipt.tmpl so the receipt can be modified on the fly by jquery (perhaps an aside to the other two)

Discussion welcome and encouraged.

My suggestion was to use Template::Toolkit, not HTML::Toolkit. :)

Template::Toolkit is a Perl module for doing templating, and has a nice, simple language for the templates.  The project's website is http://template-toolkit.org/.  One tutorial to look at is

I sent an update for this to solve the issue of adding content (HTML) by date using the news scheduler, the HTML custom work still needs done. 

BUG #3246 Enhancement - Modify news to be able to have scheduled receipt slip messages
There are 3 files to this patch / koha-news.tmpl moremember-receipt.tmpl and moremember.pl
This file is koha-news.tmpl
This enhancement will allow the news scheduler to schedule messahes to the opac / intranet / and slips
which is useful because then ads can be presented at the bottom of receipts as well as *long-term*
custimizations since any type of code can go into these slips - one can make a long term custimization to
add information (anything/anyformat) to the bottom of the slip as well as periodic news items

Slips are now customizable in version 3.8 and later.
