  • "static" version of VB ?

    Take a look at this forum running vb 2.2.9 http://www.gtplanet.net/forum/ ,
    all the pages are static html.

    I'd image that each new thread/reply is entered in the DB and then a static page is generated to keep mysql connections to a minimum.

    either that or they are using a url rewriting module for apache (mod_rewrite) or similar.

      It's probably one of the archive hacks over at vbulletin.org. That's what the URLs in the vB3 archive look like...

        If something has an .html extension doesn't mean it's static. I can create a PHP or any other file with an extension of .whatever at any time.

          Sounds like mod_rewrite for better search engine listings.

          I just clicked that link and the page just doesn't load.. 30s now

          The archive hack on vBulletin.org by teck would be archive/ as url.
