The style hasn't been updated yet. I had the same problem with my style. I borrowed the Prosilver memberlist_body.html from its template folder, and made edits to it to be compatible with my style, then put it in my style's folder.

I'll try this :)

Edit: it worked great! I just copied Prosilver's memberlist_body and pasted it into my theme's template folder.

Thanks!

The normal procedure would be to download the code changes package, http://www.phpbb.com/downloads/olympus. ... 0.9&code=1, and update the style yourselves manually for more than one reason.

First is that more style changes are required to bring your style up to the same level as your phpBB board.
Second is that the style may have modified templates, you will loose when copying the default prosilver/subsilver2 templates.

100% agree!!!

In my case, I have a fully updated style (proFormell 1.3.4), and it still had this problem. I checked the latest version of the style, and it doesn't even HAVE its own memberlist_body file because of template inheritance. But it still has a legacy version in its template path. If I remove it, I can't refresh templates because the refresher can't find the new one... go figure. So it's easier to just copy the prosilver version over to the proFormell template folder than it is to fight it.

That would mean your board was not updated fully.

Inheritance means that a style uses template files from an other style, e.g. prosilver.
If the style does not have the memberlist_body file, you should update the template from the style it inherites from, probably being prosilver.
If prosilver still had an old template it just means the phpBB update to 3.0.10 was not correct.
