    Hi Guys,

    At some point today I will be implementing a new URL scheme and soem other forum SEO components which will improve our search engine ranking and visibility.

    With this comes a one-off performance hit.

    The first time someone loads the page after this is implemented they are going to see a slight performance hit for the first load of each forum and thread. However this is a one off, and once it has run once, it will not need to be run again.

    It will make the forums perform very marginally slower as they will be adding an additional set of queries but nothing noticable.

    The old URL's will all still work, and if we notice any major performance issues or the site loads a lot more slowly we will look into just remove the URL scheme. It is an important change so it is certainly worth testing.

    Any issues let me know

    Dan

    The address of the forums and threads will change from

    http://forums.silvertails.net/thread-21090.html

    to

    http://forums.silvertails.net/21090-FYI-URL-scheme-update-and-slight-performance-hit.html

    This will make things go very slightly slower, and much slower on first load :)

    The change has been made, please let me know if it starts loading a lot slower. I need to keep an eye on how it performs

    I am a bit worried with load as we have hit 1.06 on server load as of posting this. It's fluctuating a bit, but hopefully it stabilizes soon

    Dan, things are ok at my end. I haven't noticed any change.

    Thanks for all the great work you do with the forum.
