Compress Forum Templates
Speed up your Forums & Save Bandwidth



Description:

This hack compresses your sites Templates into the database resulting in a significantly smaller page size and faster loading pages.
The benefits of this Template Compressor as opposed to virtually any other that you have installed is that this compresses the templates into the database.

Other hacks compress the pages on every page load which takes CPU/Memory usage as well as slows down the actual output of the page.

PS. Use this in conjunction with my Other Hack (Accelerated Plugins) for speeding up your forum even more (If you use plugins especially).

PS. Use this in conjunction with my Other Hack (Template Cache System) for speeding up your forum by caching its templates.
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=110144


Background:

This is a semi-port from my Vbulletin 3 Version: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=79923


Instructions:

1. Download Zip File, Extract files..
2. Read install.txt and follow it
3. Note: Anytime you update your templates, make sure to click "Compress Templates".
4. If you have any problems with certain hacks not working, add affected templates to "Template Ignore" setting in the Admin Control Panel settings.


Common Templates That May Need To Be Added to Ignore Settings:

phpinclude_start phpinclude_end editor_jsoptions_font editor_jsoptions_size forumhome navbar forumhome_vbshout forumhome_vbshout_shout


Updates:

Version 4.2: Forgot to upload ZIP File..
Version 4.1:
Changed setting location, you now modify them in the Admin Control Panel under Template Compressor Settings; there you can specify the templates to ignore.
Flashchat, others sometimes cause problems; so by default a few vbchat templates are listed in the ignore setting.
If you have problems with any other hacks not showing, trying add the 'forumhome' template to the ignore setting and recompress your templates.

Version 4: Integrating Hellcats regex, hopefully will solve some problems.

Did I miss something ?

Installed hack (RC3) this morning and it seems to work just fine. My question is, on the instructions it says
- Click "Rebuild Hook Cache". This will build the cache used for compiling plugin code into the FileSystem, anytime you add a new hook location in the code you will want to re-run this to reparse the file and update the cache.

- Click "Rebuild All Plugins". This will take care of compiling all of your enabled
plugins into their appropriate files.
I don't have any place to click to rebuild hook cache nor to rebuild all plugins unless it is some place I haven't looked.

Can anyone let me know if I should keep looking or uninstall or what?

Thanks,
Henry

this is a bad hack! you should place in your titles that it could cause a lot of problems! I'm trying to uncompressed it and then recompessed it over and over again! But my mods still dissapeared.
Please, at least tell me how to remove completely this damn hack!

after some tries, I fixed this, the problems is because of the Plugin Accelerator Hacks, when I installed it and enabled it, my forum was running well. But when I diabled or uninstall it, my forum met problem again!
Please find a way to fix that or remove that hack

This hack has negative effect on other plugins.

I would not recommend installing this unless you have a default plugin free board otherwise there can be side effects.

He's right." Not Knocking the hack" Since I installed it The "vBgalleryforum home hack" which shows latest photos on forum home doubles up.It shows one on top of the other.
