Re: Download Speed

Thank you for the suggestion Several of the boards I admin are aimed at the interests of retirees. As you might guess most won't spring for a high-speed connection (at least until they discover that they can flood the internet with photos of their granchildren) and modifying templates mainly consist...

Innodb or MyISAM

Given a moderate sized forum ( 200000 + posts, 24000+ topics, 10000+ members 22000+ attachments ) would you opt for Innodb or MyISAM.

(Innodb + fulltext native ssearch) or (MyISAM + fulltext MySQL search)

Re: Download Speed

Forgive me if this is a stupid idea, these days I only keep up with things enough to make them work, and sometimes when the fish are biting I don't even do that. Noticing that "CSS alternate style-sheets may be referenced in the HTML but are not actually downloaded until they are needed " got me to ...

Download Speed

While our forum is happily running on phpbb2. We have a second version on phpbb3 so that we can develop our style, learn our way around, and play. I began to hear from a few members that had visited the new version that it was very nice, but a bit slower. Since I never noticed that phpBB3 was slow, ...

Re: Third Party CAPTCHA

Didn't intend for it to be social commentary but I guess it came out that way. What I was trying to say is that the percentage of people who have some difficulty percieving colors (colours for some of you in out of the way parts of the world) is not so small. Frankly I've struck up a lot of interest...

Re: Third Party CAPTCHA

I guess the biggest criticism to this would be from those who are color blind, but what percentage of the public is color blind (some studies suggest that 1/2% of females and 5% of males)? The color option could perhaps be turned off and on in the ACP for those who wish to be sensitive to these sma...

Re: Suspecting RC1 very soon!

Since I messed up this thread with talk about Captcha vs. Q&A images I’d like to redeem my self by taking a guess at the introduction of RC1, and that is the 13th. Since this will most likely be the winning entry. I’d like to announce the formation of the People Helping Protect Bertie Bears (phpbb) ...
