Installing/Uninstalling on a large forum

It is strongly recommended to use the CLI installer/uninstaller.
This add-on alters xf_reaction_content, which can take a very long time for a large forum.

To run the SQL manually, use;
alter table xf_reaction_content
    add index reaction_user_id_reaction_date (`reaction_user_id`,`reaction_date`);

Implementation notes
  • Designed for performance, only minimal data is fetched when interacting with the rating system
    • Overrides XF2's rebuild behaviour to instead be incremental rather than count all ratings on a piece of content.
  • As MySQL's InnoDB table structure does not feature prefix compression, a content type/id pair is very inefficient space-wise.
  • Uses per-content tables which are dynamically managed to store count totals, and automagically links these to the right places for use.
  • If a content's table is "too large" to extend (ie when adding a rating type) without downtime, that content has the rating type disabled for it and the required manual SQL for the administrator to run provided.
    • "too large " table size threshold is an adjustable, may be to fully automatic or fully manual for adding columns.
