Hey guys !!

I was wondering why PHPBB3 was so slow ? Even on loads of forums it is very slow to loads... PHPBB2 never had this probleme ... Is it just me ?

phpBB3 is actually a little slower than phpBB2 (on smaller websites), but it performs and scales much better on larger websites.

I'm honestly not seeing any problems with the speed on any site related to phpbb3.

It's not very noticeable, but there seem to be some problems on particular hosts and servers. phpBB3 being the beast that it is has considerably more queries than phpBB2, but it doesn't strain anywhere near as much under load. It's kind of a trade-off :D

The trade-off being: More / Better features but less speed?

The trade off being speed on small sites / scaling on large sites.

I can see why it does that, well you've got to put into mind phpBB3 is new so give it time and it should recover. :)

It's been in development for three years :D That's the decision the devs made regarding performance, and personally it seems like the right one.

True but it's newly released, we're just all going to have to live with the upsides and downsides of phpBB3.

vBulletin is pretty quick and slick but the downside is that its not free.
