FASTyle 1.5
FASTyle is a dead simple plugin which replaces the old themes/templates/settings saving routine with a faster, more user-friendly solution using AJAX. Instead of saving and reloading the page every time, the plugin handles the saving process using AJAX and displays an inline message once it has completed.

Once you click on the saving button, it will be replaced with a spinner until the saving process finishes, when a notification will appear in the top right corner of your screen. You can save without touching the save button just by typing the keyboard shortcut CTRL (CMD for Mac users) + S. The latest version lets you quickly jump between templates while you edit them and quickly load templates in the templates list using AJAX.

From the original idea of Eric J.. Thank you Eric.

Probably one of the best plugins for MyBB forum managers. Definitely recommend it.

Hmm, how does this work exactly, like how do i use it? Couldn't figure out.
Sure. When you edit a template you should see a column row named Template set, FASTyle adds a row named Quick jump merely after it filled with the template list of the theme you are currently working on. Once you select a template, it automatically redirects you to that template.

Someone pointed out that since the template list is numerically consistent, it's quite difficult to search for a specific template. Unfortunately I developed the plugin using my ACP theme Whisper, which features user-friendly selectboxes with a search functionality. I will add a similar feature in a future update for FASTyle; in the meantime, I would suggest you to use Whisper.
Hm, there is no Quick Jump for me shown, when i select another template in the template set nothing happens.
Can you provide me privately a test account to your ACP please? I will check it out.

FASTyle 1.4 is out


To see the changelog, see FASTyle development. Special thanks to Brenda and Eldenroot for spotting bugs and suggesting improvements.
Shade - thank you!

I can confirm that Randomly not saving templates is still here - but it is rare (almost 100x time less then in v1.3 but it happens).

When you save the template it looks perfect, but when you hit F5 changes are lost (reverted back to previous version). I cannot reproduce steps why it happens but it happens.

EDIT:
- Remember template groups open when coming back to the template list [Ready]
--- How to make it working? Still closed after I click on ave and return to listing
Can you provide a test account to your board? Since it runs on a JavaScript function, custom themes with custom JS may break its routines.

Sad to know that the issue is still there – I haven't encountered one missing save till I have installed so far. I can't think of anything breaking its logic as I checked it hundreds times and it looks good to me.
Maybe you forgot to update the attachment linked above - it shows me 1.4beta - I will try to redownload it and let you know.

Good luck in you exams!
