Ah... I guess that might do it, if doing that screwed the template, somehow.

One way to find out...

Try renaming the file(s) that you edited and replace them with virgin versions and see if it sorts it.

"Something in the template's gone sour" says that some edit, somewhere, has gone screwy.

With PHP, that can simply mean that there's a bloody comma in the wrong place, or something THAT trivial, sadly.

You could always replace all of your files with virgin copies.

Obviously, you'll lose your edits and things, doing that, though. :(

Maybe try replacing everything in "Sources", first, to see how that goes?

Read my sig, first, though, so you're covered. ;)

you dont need to do anything to the database, just the files.

All members/posts will be as-was. :)

Mods'll get trashed and will need to be reinstalled. :(

nothing but your mods that are installed but do NOT delete any file not included in the large upgrade package.

DON'T OVERWRITE SETTINGS.PHP!!

Plus, you don't want to upload install.php (Or upgrade.php if you use the large upgrade).

i replaced the folder sources but still nothing. i'm going to replace all files right now. i must donwload the big upgrade from the download section and just the script? or manually delete every file via ftp and then upload from scratch? or replace every file without delete the previous ones?

You can ignore those.

They're backups made by some mods, when they install.
