Template Editor Updated

The template editor has been updated! Here’s a list of changes:

  1. Everytime you edit any template file a backup is made before the file is changed. Up to 5 backups can be made and these are put into a FIFO queue.
  2. The display of “editable files” has changed. A list of backups now follows each file. If a backup exists you can click on the number to edit it. If you save the backup again it will overwrite the template, thus restoring the backup.
  3. If no changes are made to a file then it won’t be saved when you try to save it.

Be aware that these single file backups are alse backed up when you backup the whole template via the “Template Changer” page. When you restore a template backup from that page those backups will also be restored.
