This question may be related to a resolved thread.
Can anyone tell me how good or bad the Fresh Variables module performs? Does it strain the database?
Also is it possible to cache them?
Michael, I don’t have any bench marks for how good/bad Fresh Variables performs.
What I can say is that it is ideal for working in a MSM where you don’t want to maintain two different Global Variable settings.
As far as caching goes, I’ll see what I can find out.
When you’re using Fresh Variables, it is a single extra query (extra only if you have extensions turned off otherwise, if you have them on then this is a normal query).
It is only a single query as the variables are stored in the extension settings. As far as performance, it is the same as path.php global variables: just some string replacements.
In other words, it shouldn’t be a drain on the system.
Did that answer your question?
Thanks Sue that’s brilliant!
Glad to see that helped
