Hello

The bug is that seeing the message "Only a limited number of fields in this item may be edited." it is still possible to edit inaccessible fields, just need to remove the "readonly" attribute through the code inspector. This applies wherever it appears:
  • Custom BB codes
  • BB code media sites
  • Help pages
  • Member statistics
  • Template modifications
  • Cron entries

Regards

This is not something we would consider a bug. We don't allow them to be edited because of admin confusion when their changes are lost, not for any sort of security reason. Enabling debug mode will trivially make them editable as well.

If you choose to manually override the interface limits to make these changes, then you are expected to understand the consequences.
