Description Chris Cormack 2010-05-21 00:56:49 UTC

---- Reported by rch@liblime.com 2008-11-25 15:54:56 ----

When a staff user logs in, get_template_and_user calls GetMemberDetails to get permissions flags.  This function also queries for any issues, reserves and charges that the logging-in user may have.  There is no need for this information; we should have a slimmed down authentication for the staff interface that skips superfluous queries.

---- Additional Comments From joe.atzberger@liblime.com 2009-06-05 20:06:42 ----

GetMemberDetails is extremely costly and doing it during Auth means that the pages that really DO need the information are calling GetMemberDetails *twice*.

GetMemberDetails does not query for issues or reserves.
