Story: I'm currently being a hobby administrator for a not-so-large 2.0.X forum, and some of the guys are always arguing towards switching to a commercial forum. While I like the idea of sticking to open source, I did some reseach concerning the Olympus features.
Concerning the template engine, and being that I understand things as a programmer, this topic has drawn my attention:
I made a small script in order to see if the subSilver theme can be translated into a smarty-style subSilver theme and then I benchmarked the faq page by using a small test script that is bypassing the normal workflow of the forum (database queries and such), aiming to just compare speed for the two template solutions.
I'd like to share the results, give feedback and make some suggestions, but I understand this is not the right place to do it. Styling would not be right place either, as I wouldn't like getting into arguments about style syntax. Please point me in the right direction, as there isn't any tracker I could find on the sourceforge project page.
