Template Bug = Overriding Layout of Joomla Fields issue?

Featured Lock Resolved Bug
Hi There,

The below is what I sent to the people at Easy Profile, which I use to extend my site's Joomla Registration fields and I've noticed recently since moving to Helix Ultimate for my sites template, that there are a couple of areas within my sites member registration process, that now show some additional info that I don't want it to and believe that it shouldn't be.

Firstly check out the following URLS to see the areas;

Postcode field - Under 'Postcode' see where it says
" placeholder="e.g. NN10 XYZ (as documented on official letter, with the space between)" maxlength="8" required aria-required="true" >'

Last Name field - Under 'Last Name' see where it says
"" maxlength="255" required aria-required="true" > "


They have since replied with the following and hence why I am making contact with you here at Joomshaper;


Hi,
Strange Text
This is a bug of the template, it override layout of Joomla fields. Probably this override comes from a old Joomla version.
Field like Postcode is a text field type, Easy Profile uses Joomla built-in Text field to create it.
Your template override text output, basically the file called /templates/shaper_helixultimate//html/layouts/joomla/form/field/text.php override Joomla layout at /layouts/joomla/form/fields/text.php. This override is based to a old Joomla version.
To fix this problem you can rename file at /templates/shaper_helixultimate//html/layouts/joomla/form/field/text.php with a name like text_no.php

Also, we recommend to contact developer of template to fix it, otherwise all HTML descriptions will not works.


Therefore, whilst I have done their mentioned temporary workaround... I'm seeking a longer term solution from you here at Joomshaper?

Regards,
