    Could anyone explain what I'm supposed to do here? I don't understand XF's system for dealing with outdated templates ...

    In the screenshot, where is the parent version? And where is the custom version?

    Hmmm, actually, according to the XF manual:
    But even so, I'm still confused, as regardless of which of the three buttons I press, I get the same result.

    I ended up clicking one of the buttons, deleting all the yellow, and editing the blue lines above to add another parameter to one of the lines because it was in the yellow ....

    (Well, at least it didn't seem to break anything, but perhaps it's worth the cost to pay for a support subscription for that theme after all.)

    Having looked at more outdated templates, I now understand that within the yellow conflict lines, the parent version is above the buttons and the custom version is below.

    (BTW I ended up forking out the cash for renewal of the theme.)
