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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

Randomly not saving templates

15 Aug 2016
This issue is marked as solved
Issue from 1.1 is still there - sometimes (rarely) you have to press F5 to reload the page and apply the changes again. Save is not working. Anyway it occurs less then before

Thank you for your report @Eldenroot, indeed the bug is still there. I am testing 1.4 and so far so good, but still needs a bit of tweaking. Can you confirm that the issue just happens when editing templates?
Eldenroot 15 Aug 2016
As I said - it is really rare but it happens. Difficult to reproduce properly, I detected this bug only in templates so far

Thank you, added to FASTyle development.

I have uploaded a beta version of FASTyle 1.4 to FASTyle development. Feel free to install and try it. Should solve this issue once for all, but still needs testing.

Unfortunately this is still happening way too often.

That's true, and I have no clues left to solve the issue once for all.

I could isolate the issue with some luck. Apparently the hidden input pointing to the template identifier changes randomly under certain conditions and gets reset to the "default" templates tid. So:
  1. The template you are currently editing it not updated;
  2. The global template copy is not updated, since MyBB does not allow this operation by design.

The solution, regardless of when and where that input changes, is simple yet effective: attach the tid directly to FASTyle JS instead of fetching inputs every time you save.

This will solve the issue definitely.

Really nice to hear u could find the issue.

The best mybb plugin imo. :) I suppose we can expect an update soon then?

Very soon.
