For the next release we are planning on adding full templating & i18n support. Unlike other forums we intended to be fast & efficient about our template implementation, which means not doing the template parsing real time.

Our current plan is to allow a person to create their template and then "compile it" into an file that will not require any parsing real time. The "compiler" would replace various defined "tags" with actual php code that in turn will populate the template with corresponding data from the forum.

This implementation will be very fast in terms of page generation, in fact we suspect it may even make the forum run faster then it does right now, since many of the strings will be static.

The main disadvantage is that after any layout change you will need to recompile the template. Which, should be pretty fast (1-2 seconds) but may be a little annoying if you are playing around with the layout.

Hi Protoss,

may I suggest you take a look at Smarty? (http://www.phpinsider.com/php/code/Smarty/) It does exactly what you describe, and adds optional content caching as a bonus.

I've done a lot of research into template engines and Smarty came out as the winner, both in functionality and performance.

Cheers,
