Re: anybody using 1.3 in a production environment already?
Sure different like you said.. Thanks Smartys
I am not revert everything, I play with users, posts, and topics only. Using that tables for my old 1.2 scripts. Now running 1.2. Yes, its my own risk.. It just dropping FullText indexing on Posts & Topics to gain SQL space. Rebuilding search index from 1.2 admin panel, for search function (almost 2 hours indexing on 26663 topics and 373654 posts).
For new indexing feature on 1.3, I read and learn this (read comments at bottom) http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/ … dexes.html
Its fulltext indexing like Smarty's said..
Maybe, thats explain why 1.3 faster than 1.2
Yeah, Rickard already told. Many schema changes on 1.3.
Mods/Plugins progamming totally change. I am still learning how to make or convert some plugins in to 1.3 new scheme..
After one month using and playing 1.3. Its great and faster. I am creating simple portal (frontpage style) to display new topics from few forum categories choosen, including recent post. Even, I am not expert on CSS programming.. But, that's our visitor like. Its different like other forum around there.
One important thing for big forum, something missing such PM feature etc. My visitor need those feature, and other mods/plugins feature that work on 1.2. Thats why, I revert to 1.2.
For new PunBB user, better to use 1.3, even still in Beta. PunBB 1.3 offer future feature and compatibilities for feature release (1.3 Final). Extension easy to learn without touching core files.
Smart is Simple. Fast is Smart. Think Fast, You'll be Smart..
