Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Using list-builder and order by

Posted by Don Baccus on
I think the greatly enhanced performance of the forums on itself is proof of the increase in performance of the list builder when pagination is used.

It's not the entire increase, we also started recording thread-count information rather than use count(*) queries, a couple of slow queries were found and improved by people other than myself, etc.

But the list builder itself now scales quite nicely if you use pagination, and even more nicely if you enable caching (which requires some simple logic to figure out when to flush the cache).
