Hello

I've modified templates and after upgrade on RC1 I don't want to revert my modified templates. I'm looking for a template compare tool or software, somebody help me please.

I log all of my template edits in a file so I can revert and easily reapply them afterwards.

For css edits I put them all in EXTRA.css, which removes most of the problems related to reverting/reapplying after upgrades.

I sometimes do that including a reference where the addon/mod can be found.
It's still quicker for me to do a compare.
1. Copy edited template.
2. Revert
3. Copy reverted template
4, Compare
5. Paste edited template.

I do hope we get away from mods needing template edits once stable.
That is what drove me away from phpBB2.

Whatever you are used to and what works.

Add: It may be a good idea to log those edits in a separate template so you have it right there.
I am always forgetting where I put things. :)
