XF 1.5 Is template modification slower than template edit


Well-known member
I have around 20 template edits which I did manually. If I implement them through template modifications (so that I don't want to replicate them when I install a new style), will it be bad - performance wise?

There's no difference performance wise.

Both approaches will have the changes rolled up into the compiled template which only happens at save time rather than run time.

It's a very good idea to create template modifications as opposed to direct template edits. You can make simple add-ons for each type of change you want to do, that way it's easy to troubleshoot issues by disabling one add-on which is just disabling one particular group of template modifications.
