Re: [RFC] Post Revisions

I'm saying that to delete revisions you delete the post. :) Deleting the source post should trickle down to delete all revisions of that post. If it's important enough to keep revisions, then keep them as long as the post is around.

Re: [RFC] Post Revisions

I think having the feature to delete revisions might even be unnecessary. ... Having a log of edits is one of the reasons post revisions are so helpful, so the ability to remove things should be given out carefully, and without being able to directly delete, the only option would be to flood messag...

Re: [RFC] Global template variable for user avatar

To me USER_DATA[username] seems the most natural of the three options provided.

Re: [RFC] Post Revisions

My two cents: If an owner edits their own post I don't care. If a non-owner edits the post then I do care. For example, I don't want a moderator or admin editing someone else's post without recording why. The post revisions process takes care of the "what" and "when" of the event, but not the why. B...

Re: Database Optimize & Repair Tools from ACP

You would have to create a different section for each potential database supported by phpBB. And what about databases that don't offer such tools? To be honest, I am not in favor of this. In my opinion, database administration should never be done using tools that are embedded within an application ...

Re: [RFC|Merged] Pagination as <ul> list

I have done a force-refresh to no avail.

[Edit] I had to go into Chrome options and specifically clear the cache, now is working.

Re: [RFC|Merged] Pagination as <ul> list

Is this change active here now? All of the pagination is now vertical rather than horizontal. I'm using Chrome as my browser.

Re: Why PHP take more CPU time than MySQL ?

More RAM helps assuming you use it. Faster CPU would make the php code execute faster. What sort of site are you running? Meaning how many concurrent users do you have? My server regularly supports hundreds of concurrent users without problems, and I've seen over a thousand concurrent users during p...

Re: Why PHP take more CPU time than MySQL ?

A few years back I had nothing better to do :) so I dissected and tuned every single query that I could find. Even after that I discovered that my page generation times were roughly the same as before. I broke things apart into major categories of php activity and found that - at least in my version...

Re: Why PHP take more CPU time than MySQL ?

Turn gzip off and you'll save some CPU cycles at the expense of increased bandwidth. I've had gzip off for years. Also less than half a second to render a page really isn't that bad.

But even with gzip off, php and the template engine takes more time than a well-tuned database.
