XF 1.4 Template Mods


Well-known member

How do templates mods work? As in, when are they applied to the template?
Do they have a performance impact?

I know for upgrading reasons, temp mods are preferred by many. But for serving reasons, aren't edits better off being hard coded directly? And with XF temp merge system, does it really matter if edits are directly in the template?

Template modifications are really for add-ons. If you're doing things for your own site, we'd always recommend that you just edit the templates directly.

In terms of performance, a template modification is no different from a direct edit.
