Template Engine Analysis Postponed…

Filed under: Performance Tuning, phpBB — Dave Rathbun @ 12:43 pm CommentsComments (4) 

As regular readers will know (I think I’m up to 3 of you now :lol: ) I have been doing some testing and preliminary analysis on some different template engines for phpBB2. However, I have since discovered that the alternate template engines I have been evaluating work fine on most pages but fail on the posting page. So at the moment I have tabled all further posting until I can get a template system that works for all phpBB functions, and not just the basic pages I was refreshing. It’s quite discouraging, as I was hoping to finish reviewing the numbers and roll out my selection on my largest board during our next update.

We’ll be sticking with eXtreme Styles for now. Further details will be posted once I get everything working.


  1. Me too. v0.1.1 fixed some things, but broke others. Must wait for next release. :0

  2. Speedy Template 0.1.2 was released just a bit ago, and it fixed some stuff. But it still (for some reason) doesn’t play nicely with the Attachment MOD. I installed a vanilla phpBB2 board with only the attachment MOD just to make sure it wasn’t something else that I had installed, and it failed. :-?

    It has to do with the template loading process when you post. That’s about as far as I have managed to get at this point.

    BTW, I’m going to leave the board up and available for spammers, so you might get a fresh database to play with. We’ll have to see how long it takes for them to find the board. :lol:

  3. Ok, but you’ll have to tell me the URL of the board sometime, because I don’t know what it is.

  4. I guess if I post a link, the spammers will find it faster:


    There you go. 8) By the way, I’ve written up a few posts with some statistics from nearly a year of Checkbox Challenge registration logs and they’re scheduled to come out over the next few days. I even learned some stuff while doing them. Like how to use iptables to block access to my server, without locking myself out. :lol:
