Stoyan Stefanov's Blog:
phpBB front-end optimization - 1 hour workshop
July 13, 2007 @ 08:56:00

On his blog, Stoyan Stefanov takes a look at using on of the most popular pieces of PHP forum software out there - phpBB - and optimizing the front-end.

During this short workshop there will be no changes to the phpBB code, we'll create a new template instead, so that in case something bad happens, your board will continue to work normally. As an example, I'll use the bgcanada.com/phpBB2, the board I volunteer to administrate.

The tutorial is broken up into sections:

  • The plan
  • New subdomains
  • Creating a new template
  • Moving CSS to an external file, merging
  • Copying files to the new subdomains
  • Serving gzipped content
  • Turning ETags off
  • Expires header
  • Sysadmin summary

It looks like a lot of steps, but each section is relatively short and written well so as not to have more information than needed. In the end you'll have a simple template that uses Yahoo's 14 optimization rules to make things work that much faster.
