Question: What is the pro's and con's of a dynamic or static directory?

Answer: A dynamic directory takes up system resources because it generates pages on the fly. But any changes made to it from the control panel is available immediately.

The downside of a static directory is that you have to re-generate the HTML files of your directory structure to reflect any changes you made to links within the control panel. A static directory uses very little resources because end users mostly browse only HTML pages. (The generated HTML pages) We recommend a static directory over a dynamic directory because it takes up very little system resources. A static directory is where the complete directory tree with all it's pages are generated beforehand. This enables users to browse your directory like they would ordinary web pages, resulting in saving a lot of CPU resources on your host. Highly recommended.
