XF 1.5 Merging outdated templates after updating to parent or custom?


I get the following error after updating from to

This template is outdated. It is recommended that you merge the parent changes into this template.
It is not recommended to modify parent styles. Do so at your own risk.

I don't know if I should choose:
- resolve using parent verion
- resolve using both
- resolve using custom version

See screenshots for content.

parent (above):
<div class="messageUserInfo" {xen:if $user.user_id, 'itemscope="itemscope" itemtype="http://data-vocabulary.org/Person"'}>    
<div class="messageUserBlock {xen:if $user.isOnline, online}">
custom (below):
<div class="uix_userTextInner">

                <xen:if is="{$userBlockHasCollapsibleElements} == 1">

Well-known member
Looks like you're using a UI.X style.

As new XF updates come out the templates may change which causes the custom style template to be outdated - usually the theme author will update their styles too to keep up.

So try updating your style to the latest release first.
