Re: [RFC] Symfony 2

I don't have experience with Symfony, but I am completely for a move towards using an existing framework. It would not only be more efficient (from a development standpoint), but also better leverage of the biggest benefit of Open Source. Use of a framework can reduce phpBB development lead time and...

Re: A Rant on Forums

However, the comments from slashdot are completely irrelevant. He dismisses the entire paradigm of forum software, and there's little that can be done to change the fundamental structure of how forums work. Completely disagree there. The comments shouldn't be dismissed like that, there is quite a b...

Less is more when it comes to an intuitive interface. There are many lessons to be learnt from Blizzard's forum.

Re: A question about the Olympus search engine

You can use MySQL's fulltext in phpBB, which would offer you much better performance for most forums. It eliminates phpBB's search tables and uses the built-in MySQL fulltext engine. Keep in mind though, when your forum gets very large, even MySQL's fulltext will become a problem. In the meantime, y...

Re: Main phpBB Site

My recollection is that phpBB.com was updated for phpBB 2 final release. The new phpBB.com and the new phpBB were rolled out together—as I recall. I also remember a policy Paul harped on, before even phpBB2, that phpBB.com would never be used for testing future releases as some others have done (ie...

Re: differences between fulltext phpbb vs fulltext mysql?

MySQL can do more to increase speed than store the entire table in RAM. ;) It will keep a file open on the hard drive so when its requested again it doesnt have to find the file and open it. You lose benefits like that. The overheads on opening and closing file pointers are minimal, real database b...

Re: differences between fulltext phpbb vs fulltext mysql?

There is one problem with that code. It destroys MySQL's ability to cache the search tables. There are thousands of tables so it cant store any one in the memory or even just keep the file handle open as it doesnt know which one will be used. That's the intention, it's a disk based solution as due ...

Re: differences between fulltext phpbb vs fulltext mysql?

MySQL's full text search capabilities are basically the same as phpBB's. The difference is that MySQL has it built in to the db thus needing less processing while phpBB does it in php requiring more code and SQL queries. They both dont scale well. Thats just how search is. I'd imagine that MySQL's ...
