Hello these are not issues at all. I think you are not use to the new look and feel as some things changed like icons for things which people have been asking for years. The ubbcode etc is still shown if you have it turned on and there will be a more icon next to the showing code to expand as that has been moved to ajax. The photopost profile is essential to users for alot of features in our program.
You are free to modify code in a manner you wish to achieve any result you wish and their are modification forums you can discuss this with other users on how to achieve this but we can only support the default released code.
