If you upgrade your site to xenForo 2.0.10 to clear the outdated templates simply merge the PAGE_CONTAINER template.
Since I don't make any major changes to any of the templates merging the templates makes it very easy to upgrade without losing the customizations.

I'll start. I'm Bob. Been a forum owner since 1994 when I started my first forum with a hacked up comment form included with Microsoft FrontPage. Been addicted every since.
The last thing I coded was a static archive plugin for vBulletin. It took old threads and created static HTML pages and purged the data from the database. I never finished it. I had panned to port it to xenForo and finish it, but, with the power of web servers and efficiency of the script...
