Nearly all of them that are different for 2.0 have a note by them stating the difference. Most of them are general tune-up suggestions that are good for any forum software. I highly suggest actually putting your brain in gear and reading (gasp!) the first post or two in the topic.

You should have mentioned that before, I wouldn't have been so abrupt in my response. Sorry, I'm just used to people not bothering to read.

In general, nearly all will help with the 2.0 series, but some small differences may exist. These have been noted in the posts.

The number one thing that you can do to make sure SMF is as fast as it can be is to use a good hosting provider. A lot of the ones out there are poor quality and they run their servers overloaded, making everyone on their hosting plans suffer.

MrMike:
I had a quick question about this and after reading through the thread I still wasn't sure...so, I'm posting this for clarification.

1) Regarding the recommendation to "move the uploaded avatars directory", does this apply only to avatars that users have uploaded after installation, or to all avatars, including the contents of the /avatars directory?

2) In a brand new install of SMF, if I upload a bunch of avatars for the users to choose from, should they go into the usual /avatars directory or into a new directory, like "/forum/my_avatars" ?

3) Does the original /avatars directory remain, with directories of avatars inside it?

I guess what I'm asking can be put another way: Do I move the original /avatars directory and its contents, or create a new directory and move all the avatars to it?

You'd leave the avatars dir alone, as it's reserved for the av gallery.
1) It's not retroactive.

So ideally this would be done before any users have uploaded their own avatars? In other words, configure this immediately after installation?

If I understand the point of this change, it's only user-uploaded avatars that place the extra burden on the system, is that correct?
