We worked on the performance of the database requests and made a big step forward mainly with the help of danielb987 (thank you). Additionally we fixed a few bugs, reported by RaHa, danielb987, Magma and Baris. I hope, I didn't forgot one of you important helping hands. Thank you all.
You can download the new release 2.4.3 from Github or, if you have already installed a 2.4-release, from the menu page of your forums admin area.
Please be aware of two changes in the settings. The settings
read_state_expiration_date are gone! Instead we introduced the settings of
read_state_expiration_method you set the method to remove outdated entries of user X read entry Y.
0: a read status of an entry, read by a user will remain for the life time of the forum (we have actually no experience with the infuence to performance or data size! please test the function)
1: number of entries per user (was setting
max_read_items before, default value was increased from 200 to 500!)
2: number of days until an entry outdates
3: remove entries in the moment, when a thread will be automatically locked
read_state_expiration_value you set the value for
2. When the status should be removed with the automatic locking of threads, the value of the days until locking (setting
auto_lock_old_threads) will be used instead.
Please report any problems with the new version here.
