Hello, thanks for taking interest in my issue. I have a WordPress + Pagelines + w3 total cache + better wp security website. I have changed the wp-content directory to a different name.
The issue is I can not select a custom template for YARPP. I have put my yarpp-thumbnail-template.php file in the appropriate directory and right now YARPP is displaying as text on my posts (when it should be dispalying thumbnails).
I did notice that in the plugin file there were some references to wp-content which I changed to a different name. I changed what references I saw to fit my own directory structure but it still does not work.
Currently "Display using a custom template file" is grayed out. Is there any other way of implementing this template? If not, does anyone know what is causing the issue?
