After , I believe it was Alpha 3, they released the beta version. Some bugs, nothing major (again up to Beta 3, plus or minus... never came close to ten). Then came the RC releases.
As RC, XenForo was/is more stable than any forum software I have ever came across. 2 years later and it still is, 57 bug reports and 26 future bug fixes: 83 bugs? lol, wow, that is pretty much next to nothing. After 2 years and only 83 bugs?
So, where did they mislead me? Queries.
Their tutelage taught me that most add-ons that I created should not cause an additional query. Not one.
My Roster add-on has zero additional queries. I took the time and made sure there was not one.
What a waste of my time.
106 queries seem to be the standard.
I tried and I can not make my add-on generate 106 queries, no matter the options.
As 106 DB queries seem to be the standard now, I'm left with no choice but to create a loop that generates 106 queries... for well... no reason at all. But at least the query count will be up to the new "standard".
Sorry for this thread, but I can not get over this fact: 106 queries for, not just a beta release of a software, but beta 10? Wow. As an amateur coder I would be very embarrassed to release any add-on for XF that generated more than 3. If I was a professional coder... who is hired full time to do this... and was involved with a product that caused 106 DB queries, I would be asking myself if maybe I would be more suited working at McDonalds. Though I would probably be fired the first day, flipping a burger 106 times would most likely get one fired.
Is it me, or is 106 queries ok?
Kier and Mike, thank you for your guidance. 0 DB queries
