Well as it only takes about 30 minutes to install it and if you don't like it about 1 minute to replace backups then just give it a go.
I see some increase in speed on my site and users on my sons site also report some increase in speed.
I don't think that it is a perceived increase just because we are expecting one but a genuine increase.
I can always restore it to pre mod state in very short time so I intend to give it a go for a while but so far looks to be making a difference.

Image link Oh dear me yes I do believe I get sick at the sight of index pages that are 10 pages long...I may have an allergy to that... I get all dizzy and feel lost..my eyes start burning...it's bad...

I think I may have longindexpageaphobia.. it's a medical condition.. I think it's hereditary..

Can you re-word your reply to me more specific? Our language barrier seams to have made that question a bit vague. icon_sad.gif

Heh, as in why isn't "None" an possible answer to the poll... that's a valid point. If it where there, in the form "none of the above" it would be interesting to see how many people would make the selection.

The question of "What is your favorite MOD?" is like a beauty contest with 1,000 participants. icon_razz.gif

Oops...
Code:
You have tried to enter too many poll options

I will replace Last Post Topic on Index with None of the above because Last Post Topic on Index it is a small MOD, even if very useful. icon_wink.gif

Post subject: Re: Recomanded MODs

Most often MODs don't provide fully what I want, or do the other way around, provide all too much. I guess one of the few exceptions would be eXtreme Styles: it only changes one file and it also provides other useful features features. I don't have a need to change it at all. Yet, I'm unsure whether I can name it a favorite or not.

As for the other MODs, some have only inspired me to do my own work loosely based on a MOD. Take simple subforums for an example: I ended up rewriting and cleaning up clutter from index.php entirely instead of applying a MOD. I've also disliked phpBB's table based styling for a good while, thus I rewrote everything.

I can't even release my changes as a MOD, they're too extensive and personal icon_biggrin.gif I can still apply other MODs, I just need to pay some attention and carefully have a look to avoid breaking anything. At the moment I'm slowly progressing with Keep Unread Flags. The worst thing is that since I have a custom Favorites page, I also need to figure out how to make it work with that page as well.
