This has to do with the fact that YaBB doesn't use CGI.pm for anything other than processing attachments. A look at FastCGI indicates it's trying to speed up things YaBB doesn't use - CGI.pm's templating ability (which is deprecated anyway).<br /><br />(And with CGI.pm's templating being deprecated, people using that are being urged to move over to newer templating software such as Mojolicious or Plack.)<br /><br />All of that said, some sources concerning FastCGI appear to say it SHOULD speed things up. So I'll need to do some experimenting.<br /><br />But the real speed savings will come with saving things in 'real' databases.<br /><br /><br /> On the Road to 2.7 - How to change a picture? https://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1514358842/1#1 YaBB Development & Mods/On the Road to 2.7 https://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1514358842/1#1 no-email@yabbforumsoftware.com (Dandello) Wed, 27 Dec 2017 15:17:01 GMT The html for that img is foung in default.html - just change the link location inside <div> On the Road to 2.7 - Moved: 'I have a new idea ' https://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1514029789/0#0 YaBB Development & Mods/On the Road to 2.7 https://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1514029789/0#0 no-email@yabbforumsoftware.com (Dandello) Sat, 23 Dec 2017 13:06:24 GMT <b>This <a href="https://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1514029790/0#0"><b>Topic</b></a> has been moved to</b> <a href="https://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?board=mods3"><i><b>Mods Wanted (New Mods)</b></i></a><b> by <i>Dandello</i></b> On the Road to 2.7 - Moved: 'Bug Road on 2.7.1929...' https://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1512966762/0#0 YaBB Development & Mods/On the Road to 2.7 https://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1512966762/0#0 no-email@yabbforumsoftware.com (Dandello) Mon, 11 Dec 2017 13:15:31 GMT <b>This <a href="https://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1512966763/0#0"><b>Topic</b></a> has been moved to</b> <a href="https://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?board=y27bugs"><i><b>YaBB 2.7 Issues</b></i></a><b> by <i>Dandello</i></b> On the Road to 2.7 - Where we are on 2.7.0 https://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1476456407/5#5 YaBB Development & Mods/On the Road to 2.7 https://yabbforumsoftware.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1476456407/5#5 no-email@yabbforumsoftware.com (Dandello) Sun, 19 Nov 2017 14:34:26 GMT I'm finding more weirdness - variables that are declared (some even have values) but never used <b>anywhere</b>. I've found whole blocks of code like that - thousand character strings stuck in a variable only the variable is never called for anywhere at all.<br /><br />I think that many of these actually date to before the introduction of YaBBC.pl as the values stored in these unused variables (language references and javascript) are used in YaBBC.

Win Safari ignores half the instructions - like speed and direction.  <img rel="[smiley=wallbash.gif]" src="https://yabbforumsoftware.com/yabbfiles/Smilies/wallbash.gif" alt="Smiley" title="wallbash" /> But, then Win Safari is obsolete, too.

(Currently this involves moving away from using 'fopen' and 'fclose' as those violate the rule against using 'bareword filehandles'. I am still researching as to whether or not the file locking mechanisms in fopen and fclose are even necessary with more modern versions of Perl and modern server software.)<br /><br />Admin.pm may end up getting split into parts - it contains a lot of pieces that are infrequently accessed. Moving those out should make the AdminCenter load faster.
