niekas: If you're trying to give positive feedback, then thanks. It is just we already know our current cache "engine" is not very good, so to speak. Also, you can't measure the information displayed on the footer (queries and generation time) alone. Probably, you know there are other factors to take into account. For instance, if you look at this page you'll see about 270 queries run is less than 0.4 seconds. How is it possible?

Anyway, we're working on a different and better (also read not the best) approach for the cache "engine" that will be ready when it's finished, heh.

Our main website is just running a version of the software which was more or less stable some time ago, but things have changed a lot and more will come...

Wrong guess. It's stable enough to be used for production. It has been for a year or more.

The [DEV] flag here means we're actively developing on it, not that it's unstable code. Just look at the main site and others powered by mxBB. :?

thanks for the confirmation. I'm fairly new with portal for phpbb and have been looking for something easy to use. I've looked at two others, not including the one mentioned here, so I hope to make a decision soon.

I was reading through articles and saw that some of the original files from cash mod need to be deleted to work with mx-bb? What I'm trying to understand is if mx-bb "uses integrated features it works without touching phpBB", why would it conflict?

If a board is already using cash mod and users already earned points, what would happen if the cash_*.php files are deleted as instructed? Will it cause major problems?

Are there other mod issues I should be aware of?

Thanks for taking the time to look into this.[/u]

mxBB relies on phpBB code... if MODs alter the code that mxBB relies on, there are obviously going to be errors.

In Cash MOD's case, it's because the mxBB ACP doesn't like Cash MOD's admin_cash.php file, which basically includes all of the other Cash MOD files. The fix was to forget about admin_cash.php, and make each individual Cash MOD admin file include itself. Not as flexible as before (ie customizing which menus will appear), but everything works.
If a board is already using cash mod and users already earned points, what would happen if the cash_*.php files are deleted as instructed? Will it cause major problems?


All data is stored in the DB, not the Cash MOD files. As I said before, replacing the admin Cash MOD files wouldn't affect anything other than allowing you to administer your portal/CMS. In any case, backup your database anyway.
Are there other mod issues I should be aware of?


Nope. You should read around a bit of the docs at mxBB though.

Please, post at the mxBB site for more info. :arrow:

The new MX-Publish­er website is now in place and the MXP team are now concentrat­ing all effort on the restructur­e of the new location to incorporat­e everthing members need. Also work is ongoing presently on a new release, this time being a fully branded new line of mx-Publish­er which can be used to work alongside phpBB 3 (Olympus version) this will be our mx-Publish­er 3.x when fully developed.
