"Customization, Email, Database"
Posted by FAICO on Oct-21-00 at 07:56 AM (EST)
Hello,

The script is very efficiency and I like its easy of installation. However if all data are stored in text files, will the speed of search and re-generate slow down significantly once record size is big?? What's the maximum number of records this system can handle with optimal performance?

Also is there some way we can send an email to every user who just submit a new site?

Thanks

ted

1) In regard to data storage, in uDirectory Deluxe, data is stored in it's own flat file database. A flat file database is not as efficient as a real SQL database, but it is more efficient than say....storing the data directly in the HTML pages.

2) In regard to the maximum number of listings that uDirectory can handle, there is technically no limit number of listings. It was designed to handle 1 to 2 thousand listings per installed copy.... but I have seen some listings with more than that. Features that faciliate larger numbers of listings include:

- The ability to set a max listings per page....so that no one HTML page gets too long. (Instead NEXT and PREVIOUS buttons are automatically added).

- The layout of the flat file database is separated per category, so category searches are more efficient.... Although searches over all categories would still require a full search of the flat-file database.

3) uDirectory deluxe does have a mailer utility that allows you to send an email to all listings in a specific category (see "Utilities")... but there is no way to control the recipient list based on date at this time.
