We have a really old installation of ubbthreads. No idea which version. I'm trying to edit the default footer for the whole site through the admin area (Display option -> general -> HTML includes -> default footer).

I've discovered that the contents of the textbox is populated from /includes/f_footer.php. However, when you edit the content and save it, it gets put in a file called footer.php.

As far as I can tell, footer.php doesn't get read from anywhere. Refresh the "HTML includes" page and it still repopulates from f_footer.php, without the changes, and if you save again, footer.php gets written over.

Anyone have any ideas?
