AJAX Threads: What is it?
AJAX Threads brings your threads alive, making them automatically refresh without needing to reload the page.

Uses

AJAX Threads is the ideal product for forums with busy threads or which deal with any sort of "event" be that TV shows, sports or game releases!
AJAX Threads allows you to make topics "auto update" without the user having to refresh. This can give performance benefits when applied to threads which receive a lot of refresh requests, and can increase user participation.
You can set whole forums to have their threads be live automatically. You can even allow only VIP usergroups to have threads refresh automatically to increase subscription numbers.

Priority support & Product Demos available at: http://www.dragonbyte-tech.com

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Translations available @ our forum
Support for translations handled by the translator in its respective threads only.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Major Features
Automatically Refresh Threads: Users will now see new posts in "real time" without having to refresh the page

Performance Benefits: If your forum receives lots of refresh requests on threads being posted in often this can put a lot of strain on your server - AJAX Threads will greatly reduce server resources used in those situations by refreshing only the minimum information required.

Total Control: You can set per forum auto-refresh controls. You can set particular usergroups to receive the benefit, and you can even have it apply automatically to popular threads!

I think vBulletin 5 is coming with this feature by default I remember that I saw a box notify me that there's a new posts.

Are you sure you're not using another mod that's providing that functionality? To my knowledge, it's not a stock feature.

That's a bug in vBulletin, turn your forum on in order to fix it :)

The devs are aware of it and will be fixing it in an upcoming version.

Yes, sorry, I installed everything properly, but the mod does not work, everything continues as before, I do not see the answers of other users appears without refreshing the page.

sergiomc 24 Jun 2013 22:54

The idea is very good, but this mod does not work, at least for me, or for the 5.0.2 version, you can test what is the problem?

DragonByte Tech 26 Jun 2013 23:34

I'll re-test it as soon as I have the time, thanks for the reports :)
