Also, unless you're going to be editing BoardIndex.template.php, there's no need to include it. We do actually check to see if templates have been edited over the default, and if they have not, we will ask you to remove unedited template files.

QuoteI do have a 1.1.x forum that I can try to create a video with if there is a feeling that it would be beneficial.

Anyone who is capable of installing and using SMF is also capable of installing and using a local host package. They really are very simple to set up and save a lot of time and effort when testing themes and mods, or even when verifying database backups. This is particularly true for people on slower and/or unreliable connections.In my opinion the best one is Vertrigo, with XAMPP being the next best. Both of these come with a good interface and good documentation in several languages.http://vertrigo.sourceforge.net/?lang=enghttp://www.apachefriends.org/en/index.html
