Re: Revert to cached template

Am I best off to just revert back to prosilver and add all of the modifications back in? It'd take me several days...but I'm getting the feeling that I'm SOL at this point?

I do have exactly the same problem.

I have been fooled by the ACP:
Edit template
Here you can edit your template set directly. Please remember that these edits are permanent and cannot be undone once submitted. If PHP can write to the template files in your styles directory any changes here will be written directly to those files. If PHP cannot write to those files they will be copied into the database and all changes will only be reflected there. Please take care when editing your template set, remember to close all replacement variable terms {XXXX} and conditional statements.
in fact, none of the changes I made in the ACP has been made in the actual template files, inspite PHP having write access to the directories.
