    Small bug present (forgot a bracket). Going to fix this in 1.1, which is also going to feature support for template modification changes, as a way to circumvent this. Give me a few moments.

    I have no idea what templates need to be protected, lol. Do I just install it and then use those 4 examples you have listed in the overview?

    Will this add-on help to prevent this problem that happened to another forum?.....

    That'd be some of the basics (in the overview), so yeah, they're some good examples to start with.

    It'll help, though not completely prevent but it'll attempt to prevent and definitely alert for manual review.

    Somebody must've data dumped my password(s) from another forum because my PS account recently got hacked and I have been worried about my forum's security as well so thank you very much for this add-on.

    @Apantic a few silly questions...

    In the zip file for 1.1.0, there is a zip file for 1.0.0 included...any reason?

    Also, in the upload directory there is an xml file in /install/data. I'm not used to seeing anything in the upload folders of an addon other than library, js, or styles...does this file need to be uploaded into the data directory?

    For reference, I use Chris D's install & upgrade but the zip uploader screws up the file placement sometimes so I unzip all the addons, combine everything into one set of folders for upload, rip the xml's to another folder then upload all the files and use old skool to run all the xmls simultaneously. So I just noticed the funky file and figured I'd ask...

    Nope, just the older version made available there.

    No, that's just another way to install from the .xml. We attached one you can upload, or you can upload from server using that link (so install from install/data/addon-blah.xml)

    Can you rephrase this, sorry? It won't work with Chris D's installer but you can upload the files manually and it'll work fine.

    Although this add-on takes a bit of tweaking, it's certainly worth the time and effort it requires.

    Once installed, if/when the non-Superadmin tries to Save All Changes on a 'protected' template they'll see…

    Or if they choose the Save and Exit button, they'll see…

    Meanwhile, as soon as any revision is attempted (to protected templates), you'll see an Alert about such...
