Re: phpBB Analytics: A Premium Service

Ok that makes sense :)

As long as you weren't storing *everything* in 10 min intervals.

Re: phpBB Analytics: A Premium Service

The real advantage of keeping statistics is keeping them over time. I have stats collected on 10 minute intervals on my board going back years. I have stats on registrations starting over a year ago. I have daily stats that are updated every night by a cron job that let me chart board growth over t...

Re: phpBB3 - Im disapointed....

I think the mod issue is an important issue and hooks are definitely the way to go. While it might be easy to add 10-15 mods to your phpbb3 forum, what happens with future releases. 3.0.2, 3.0.4, 3.0.6, ..., 3.0.20. Every single time you have to re-install those mods from a new installation and as c...

Re: Congratulations on RC7 Release!

As a software engineer, I have to wonder about that statement. We had significant regression, which requires a prolonged RC phase. More than 5 RCs can happen, they happen in open source a lot, they also happen in the "real" world. The software was just not ready, community unstable releases are our...

Re: Congratulations on RC7 Release!

I'd have to agree with PCGUY. A release candidate is just that.. a candidate for release. It should be stable enough for release, and it should have little-no known bugs, at least no major ones. It is by definition a final release for production to ensure no final late bugs arrive. The RC's in this ...

Re: Safe Mods

Personally i'm in total agreement with the OP. If I had my way mods shouldn't touch ANY code at all. They should be all be created through extending the core functions or by callbacks/interfaces/events/delegates. Take gallery2 as an example. All plugin's are separated in their own directory and no m...

Re: performance on large forums

I'm not a mysql developer (use MS products), but i'd tend to learn more towards more trusting the server with full text searches as opposed to a code based one. While sql is quite efficient, i think the extra programming gone into implementing server based searches would be a lot faster and more sca...

Re: Bandwidth Results

Philderbeast is correct in saying that graphics are the biggest user of bandwidth. In terms of phpBB, it's always been a matter of which template you choose. People made templates without graphics or limited graphics for phpBB2 so I'm sure you will see some for phpBB3. Images usually get cached tho...
