    Thanks Tubedogg and Eva

    My hosting installed ZLIB and now my forum is really more speedy.
    He doesn't install gzip, but only ZLIB 1.1.3 on php 4.0.5. It's enough or I need Gzip too?
    Hon can I use ZLIB for my home page (php) too?

      zLIB allows you to create gzipped compressed documents in PHP. It stands for Zip LIBrary.

        Is there an easy way to see IF page was compressed and how much?
        I find noting, even if ultra.comprehensive Netscape4.75 info page...
        (not talking abuont Mozilla or IE that says almost nothing, neither the actual size of the page ^_^)

          Zlib compresses avatar too?

          I've not let member use avatar until now, because I was afraid that my forum would be too slow.
          Now, with Zlib, I want to set avatar on, but I would know if the avatar will be compressed with zlib and if the forum will slow too much.
          What is the right bytes and pixels dimension of avatars to don't slow down the forum and, at the same time, don't restrict members too much ?

            avantars are GIF or JPEG - those are already compressed by format...

              If you set your avatars to between 50X50 or 65X65 and less than 4K they won't slow down your board. They also tend to load after everything else so they won't slow down your users.

                  The best setting of Gzip - Add Standard headers

                  I am on a shared server. About 20 members on line.
                  What is the best setting of Gzip between 1 and 9? It seems to me there is not much difference.

                  What Add Standard headers in admin CP is for? It's better to set it to YES or NO to save bandwidth?

                    Only use Gzip level 1. Anything more is a waste of CPU resources for a tiny gain in compression.

                    The ability to set a level other than 1 will probably be removed in a future version of vBulletin.

                      If your forums are working correctly then you should leave this setting alone. It will not help whatsoever with bandwidth usage.

                          Hi there,

                          great hint, works in 2.0.3.

                          BUT: you have to add $headinclude in between the <head>-tags in the standardredirect template, unless you like weird font settings

                          cu,

                              Does this go for Javascript includes as well Example:

                                The standard redirect pages won't show the changes done in css unless you include the simple line "$headinclude" into the redirect template...

                                This seems to have changed in 2.0.3

                                Kier never mentioned anything about 2.03?
                                That's why I mentioned this.

                                Use it or leave it - it works fine for me.
