Templates were not 'customized'. Those are templates from MyBB official site.

   You can either revert these templates to their default - meaning all the changes you’ve made to it will be removed - or you can see a Diff Report which will show you exactly what’s changed. If you have a custom theme installed, it is probably best that you look at the Diff Report and apply the changes you need.

This process of course requires you to have some basic understanding about HTML/CSS/PHP (Template Variables)/how things works in general. The changes are usually simple (like adding a missing parameter). And if you still need help with that process, you can ask nicely.

I think you haven't read my first post 'properly'. I think I have mentioned that I have solved the 'authorization error' and I couldn't do that if I would not consult the documentation.

That's right, it's your business. But you're offloading your problems and even giving 'advice' to developers and whatnot. So you are making it other people's business.

Don't you think that developers need users' advices?! Strange!! Because as far I know, in every product, end users are the best judge. There is NO PRODUCT IN THE WORLD WHICH ARE MADE ONLY FOR THE DEVELOPERS. Developers develop things according to the users' demand and needs. They have to keep in mind about the end usrers' advice. They need it, otherwise how can they progress or know what to rectify? I would advice you to be open minded. If you can't accept peoples' criticism (obviuosly constructive and I don't think I did any 'destructive' criticism), neither you will make progress nor you will be able to make a better product. But, obviuosly it's your choice of how you will take peoples' reactions, positively or negatively. That depends upon you. I can't change your perception, if you don't want to change it.

Some people already did, friend and they are very experienced one. Smile

Take my humble gratitude for giving my post some importance and taking your precious time to reply. Thank you. Smile

A new theme management system is due in 1.9 to support the new file-based Twig templates, which might be a good opportunity to make certain things easier.

That excellent! I think everybody is waiting to see that in action. Smile
