The number of queries depends on a number of things, there were 35 queries for the screenshot's that were posted, but disabling parts that you don't use significatly reduceds the number of queries performed.

Each Latest Thread adds 2 queries, as does each news item, users who have voted on a poll will also have an extra query.

I have tried to keep the number of queries to a minium and have at least halfed the number of that of the standard v1.3 avaible.

Because putting it on the 29 page will mean many users won't even know that its been updated and as the page count goes up less and less people realise theres a newer version than what it says in the first post

Can't get the news or the poll to show on vbindex. I know I have the right forums set. Still can't figure out why it won't post the news or polls. Sleepless in Salem
