UPDATE: HTML Templates / Custom Forum Templates have gone into beta testing.
While this popular 3rd party script has done amazing job for JFH users and we're amazed and even grateful at how much work was put into it all for JFH's benefit, it unfortunately did not come without flaws, some of them beyond control of the original author.
Today, we address that by announcing the development of HTML Templates.
HTML Templates will become a section within the Admin CP for each skin, very similar to Board Wrappers, Macros, and CSS. HTML templates will be editable just like the wrappers and CSS as well.
While we are not allowing the ENTIRE board template scheme to be edited, we are focusing on certain areas of interest that will be possible to reshape. These will include the following when the system is launched:
This system will be reliable and fast - your templates will not break, there will be no quirks - everything will be processed on the system's end. You will be able to export HTML template sets and import them as part of skins themselves. A single template set can be used on multiple different skins as well.
Finally, we are also consolidating templates and will be handling mini-profile HTML templates via this new location as well. Everything you're used to regarding editing mini profile templates will not change, and you can still use the old system, however, we definitely believe that keeping everything all in the same area and doing away with some of the awkwardness of the original MP editor is the best course of action. Mini profiles are much more complex now than when we first setup the editor almost 6 or 7 years ago and it's time to make editing and managing them easier.
