Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I announce that I cease all development and activity in the programming universe indefinitely. My career has reached the turning point I was not expecting for at least another year, leaving me highly off guard and without laid-out plans for this hobby's continuity. I have begun a 5-year residency program in Neurosurgery which is clearly not compatible, time-wise, with programming.

I gave in all my passion for developing, and you gave me back your loyalty and trust, even when I did not deserve that much. Now it is the time for payback. I release all my present and past work as Open Source software, in the hope some talented developer will continue maintaining and expanding my vision of a modern, sleek forum software. The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.

I hereby thank Euan, kawaii, andrewjs18, Ben, Matt, Omar G., effone, Eric J., Devilshakerz, Wildcard, JordanMussi and all the other team members I have had the opportunity to work with when I was a MyBB team member. I thank Tomm M, my mentor, who inspired me to pick up coding with his piece-of-art plugins. And finally, I thank all of you MyBBoost subscribers who have helped me getting through my toughest university years economically.

Yours sincerely, Filippo

Used 1.4 a bit, works quite fine now. Sometimes(>rarely<) there appears a loading icon, e.g. when opening templates, but nothing significant.

Furthermore it would be nice if it would be possible to keep the specific templates open when you go back.

For example i open "header templates" and go to "header_welcomeblock_member". Now i use the browser go Back or the "Save and return to listing", then the "header templates" should stay open, so there is no need to click and open the header templates listing again.

+1 for this. I hate when the template group is closed after I return back

Added to the improvements list. Besides, the spinner should load everytime @Brenda. It's likely that the response is faster than the spinner's full loading time (which completes one cycle in 1,2 seconds – should be fully visible after this timespan).

Glad the patch works at last.

Latest version.;
(caught it when it wasn't saving template and thought to record it, idk if useful though, but i just wanted to let you know its still happening)

Still something I can't figure out. The logic is perfect. I'm starting to think this is about timing, maybe in the client side, maybe in the backend side or both.
