Not Solved
(2018-08-17, 01:41 PM)Devilshakerz Wrote: The main things to watch out for with upgrading are template and CSS changes; after an upgrade administrators should go to  Find Updated Templates in ACP (mentioned after the upgrade is done) and make sure their themes' include new changes to templates - the degree of breaking existent themes can vary, and is often necessary to fix problems and security issues. For CSS files that have been modified (so most themes) the CSS linked in release notes will have to be appended or changed manually, according to instructions.
Other issues to look out for during the update are also being included in Release Notes and on the Blog.

We're aware that lack of "Find Updated Stylesheets" mechanism and, to a lesser degree, convoluted visual differentials for templates is a headache (e.g. the system should show what changes have been made in default theme to provide an example, rather than try to compare default and custom version). These will be worked on along with other improvements to the theming system in next 1.x branches; we'll also publish a Blog post soon with details on what needs to be fixed in the current upgrade mechanism.

Ok... for a poor sod like me who don't know that much about CSS and template coding, reading up on 'Find Updated Templates' is a meaningless adventure for me because most of the stuff is "Greek" to me.

So, if I have a customized theme(s), I contact the author of that theme in question and have them fix it for me. 
Many reliable and dependable theme creators will do this for free because I did pay them and some of the authors will have a (for a lack of a better phrase) an extended warranty for the customized for a certain period of time... anywhere from 3-6 months.

It's worth the money and the time for me to contact those theme creators to fix their themes up because more than likely, they have more than one theme in their portfolio and those themes (paid or free) need to be updated anyway.

I am very fortunate that I have an Admin who is excellent in many facets of MyBB and will do temporary or in some cases permanent fixes to one of the themes. 
He also does a lot of behind-the-scenes work on my website, most of which are security related.
Without his valuable contribution, my website would have failed long ago.

Just my 2 cents...
