Since boards can vary in size from tiny to enormous, when searching for spam I need an interface similar to the one used on phpBB installations or conversions that gives progress dialog boxes, refreshes itself regularly and has logic to reduce the likelihood of PHP timeouts by processing reasonably sized chunks of content. I do this toward the top of the program, but based on my experience it's not likely to be enough:
Code: Select all
I assume something AJAX-less is preferred. I've looked through the installer and while I'm sure the logic used is in there somewhere it is deeply abstracted away. Maybe there is a better way of doing this than the way the installer does it.
A best practices/built-in ways of doing this within phpBB would be appreciated.
