If you use Post Areas and a visitor clicks on the „Post Areas“ tab in a member's profile, the post and thread counts are calculated in real-time. Depending on your server resources and the total number of posts/threads, this could consume a lot of server resources. To prevent such issues or to generally decrease your server's average load you can use this add-on.
- Compatible XF Versions:
When the „Pro Performance“ add-on is enabled, the post and thread counts are fetched from a cache which requires much less server resources than the default real-time calculation.
The cache is a database table that contains the post/thread counts of all users. It is updated once a day by default (on 2:30 am in the 1.0.0 release)
After the installation
Note that right after the installation the cache will be empty. So there won't be shown any post and thread counts for any member. You can update the cache manually by running the corresponding cron entry (Tools / Cron entries). However, keep in mind that this will calculate the post/thread counts of all members! So you may want to do this when there is not much traffic on your forum..
Note: This add-on requires Post Areas 2.0.x
Upgrading your account is now also possible via credits.
All items from the envato market should now be uploaded with price in $ * 10 = credit price.
This is just because my server rent is now more expensive.
Thank you for understanding.
