How to recompile templates and phrases

The following code snippet will "force" to recompile all templates and phrases

For phrases (change languageId to yours)
    $p = new XenForo_Model_Phrase();
For templates
    $t = new XenForo_Model_Template();
If you just need to run it for whatever reason you could add it in index.php just before fc->run() (or create a separate file, or add it to a code event)

Some funs facts I have been finding today ...

Phrases are both in xf_phrase and xf_phrase_compiled

The templates most of the time have the phrases already IN the template, meaning that the compiled template is now language specific. This is a nice performance enhancement, but sadly it also means that if you modify the phrase IN the table for whatever reason, you will need to recompile templates.

Could be useful, thanks. I managed to kill my forum earlier by installing an Add-On before I'd uploaded the actual code into the /library/ directory.
