XF 2.0 Manual Merge Problem for Outdated Templates While Upgrading

As a new Xenforo user, this is my second upgrade. At first one (from 2.0.2 to 2.0.4) I did not face any problem.

But during my last upgrade (from 2.0.4 to 2.0.5) I get the following error message at "forum_post_thread" template for both default and custom style.

Oops! We ran into some problems.
The custom template is out of date but has been edited more recently than the parent. Merging can only be done by hand.

I have added some extra custom codes at this template while I was using 2.0.2 version. I wonder why I can not merge it ?

During the upgrade there were some other templates that I also modified like, "Page_container". But for it manual merge function did work without any problem.

For fixing that problem at "forum_post_thread" template, I had to change something in the template (and then change it back) to make it disappear from the list of outdated templates. Is it correct action ? What is your suggestion for hand merging?

Thanks for your valuable answers

You will need to make a note of the changes you have made to the templates, revert them, than add the changes back.

Thanks for your reply. I will do as you explain. But could you please tell me why or how does it happen ? As I said there were two more templates that I have added some codes, but these template were merged manually.

So I revert the templates, then re-add the code. A few moments later I will check and it'll tell me they're outdated again...Anyone have this issue?

Which templates are we talking about ? Did you also upgrade your UI.X addon ?

UI.X is updated and so is the theme. Before I updated UI.X and the theme I had a manual edit in PAGE_CONTAINER which you need to merge manually. I click revert, and the message goes away. Then I add the changes back in and the message comes back.

I also tried reverting the template, re-applying the update to the theme and then adding my manual code again. Still says it's outdated and needs manual editing...What step am I missing here?

Edit: I had to revert the parent style also, then make my edits in both, that fixed it, DOH!
