XF 1.2 Rebuilding Phrases and templates after every add-on install/update?


Well-known member
Just wondering why does it necessary to rebuild all the templates and phrases after every add-on install/update/uninstall?

It takes a lot of time, and I've never seen this kind of procedure on other softwares.

The caches hold a lot of pre-parsed information and stores templates and phrases so a query and processing isn't as necessary when front-end comes. When you install an add-on, these need refreshed with the new information.
