    Thank you Waindingo!

    ...but I can't understand this:
    what do you mean with "the odd error"?

    I don't have a real life example. I'm just suggesting that this may be the case. As I point out, this is already a problem with the XenForo core and developers should try and avoid this happening, but sometimes it is unavoidable.

    A pretend world example -- as part of the upgrade process of an add-on, the installer may rename a field in one of it's tables in the database. An old template might still refer to the old field name, so until the template has been rebuilt, an error will be produced on that page.

    It should also be noted that errors may occur during the period between you uploading new files and running the upgrade script. Again, developers should avoid doing anything that is likely to cause a problem, but these things do happen.

    Generally we are talking about a small possibility of small bugs on a small part of your site for a very small period of time.

    Oh ok!
    It's like I was thinking... it's only a limited temporally problem in a limited part of the site during the installation or upgrade. (y)

    I've re-worded it.
    Is that better?

    Nope. Not aware. Where? Wish I was aware because this has already saved me a ridiculous amount of waiting around time...

    Where is the temporary templates saved ?
    I am using File cache, should be nothing to worried?

    This add-on puts the files in exactly the same place as XenForo would put public template files if the following add-on option is enabled in the Performance options:
    fetchpublictemplates.png

    I don't know much about file caches, but if you are using any of the caches mentioned in the description above, I suggest that you just enable the above option rather than installing this add-on.

    (APC, eAccelerator, XCache etc.)
    etc?
    Is File Cache included on it ? :(

    I have this option enabled and eAccelerator installed. It works flawlessly.

    Will this add-on work together with Chris' HWS' maintenance screen add-on? I mean, in the rare cases this add-on doesn't work, I assume normally you'd get the white screen of death while the installation/upgrade runs, but if you have the maintenance screen add-on installed, then will the maintenance screen be displayed?

    Btw, fantastic add-on! XF ought to hire you as a core developer!
