This works very nicely...although, I had problems with EasyMod and had to do the changes by hand. A little more work than I anticipated tonight :)

By the way, is the typo something I will need to change since I used your prior zip?

Hi Tahoebuff,
the typo was a mismatch error in the install text, noticed by BitterDream (SubSilver instead of subSilver), occurrences all amended, so.

The code remains the same, as a matter of fact. ;)

Is it SQL queries high addons?
Example if you have 50 members and guest from different country on your board should SQL queries raise on index page for example +50 or...?

Thanks

That depends on the phpBB core code, the MOD query the phpBB's DB fields.
The maximum users i had online was 15. lol..
Nightwatch DL (with the CH version of this MOD, available in my Forum) reached the maximum (afaik = 50) and some dots ( . ) have been show at the end of the stats box (dots only viewable with FireFox engines) indicating that really the visits count was more than 50.

here's an image of the stats in my CH Forum

ok but my question is more does it mean that one visitors is one query more (because of flag) and how is it handle by your mod?
If board index have for example SQL queries of 10.Does it mean that with your mod it should raise because of flag for one query per visitor or not?
More queries on high traffic board should mean slowing of execution of queries and higher pressure on database what is not good at all.

Queries on database are done only for guests.
That's it, afaik, I'll ask some more info to Nightwacht DL about that, due to the fact the related code was written by him.

Thank you..

Oky, that's it:
Nightwatch wrote: 1) For multi-language (or non-english boards) there are quite a few additional queries to retrieve the right language name for countries. In a future version we should be able to alter the existing SQL query in stead of making a new one. In theory we should be able toremove all seperate language queries by making them unions in stead of current SQL queries.

2) For English boards, one additional query whenever a session is created, it has to search a rather large index (IP ranges), so will have a noticable effect on very, very big boards. Regular viewing of the index page should not, if I recall correctly, add a query even for guests. Guests already have existing sessions, and session data are pulled anyway, so the impact of this mod on big boards should be minimal, but on exceptionally big boards, noticable... just barely ;-)

Anyway, that's just my opinion from what I remember and considering I have no experience with running anything big, just DarkLight ;-)


Consider that Darklight Board have more than 1.100 users and about 600 users online daily.
