Forum Live Feed & User Wall lets you see a continuously updated feed of activities on the forum, with a powerful set of customisation options for sources of information.

If you've wished for a Facebook-like feed for your forum, this mod is for you.

This mod adds 2 distinct features to your site. First a live feed showing actions performed by everyone on the forum, from new threads and posts to things like new avatars or signatures, your members can customise their feed and keep up to date with everything that's going on, right as it happens.
Secondly every user also has their own wall that displays what they have been up to. This lets users see what their friends have been doing and join in!
With advanced privacy configuration options and configurable preview options for each content type, this mod compliments other modifications like InfoPanels and produces a more detailed and verbose feed of the happenings on the forum.

Hi there got this error

Warning: require_once([path]/dbtech/livewall_pro/contenttypes/profilepictures.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in [path]/dbtech/livewall/includes/class_core.php on line 688

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/builtfor/public_html/archongaming.org/forum/dbtech/livewall_pro/contenttypes/profilepictures.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/builtfor/public_html/archongaming.org/forum/dbtech/livewall/includes/class_core.php on line 688

DragonByte Tech 18 Feb 2012 04:05

I updated the files. Could you please re-download the .zip file and re-upload /dbtech/livewall/includes/class_core.php and see if that works?


Trip3151 18 Feb 2012 04:16

Nice that works so let me get this right this does not put the update status under your username in postbit? It just gives me a wall full of feeds?

DragonByte Tech 18 Feb 2012 04:20

That is correct :)

We may implement additional display options in the future, but they will most likely be revolved around the profile and not the postbit.

Postbit space is rather limited, and we want admins to be able to allow people to post a microblog (think Twitter) length status - hence the default 140 characters ;) - without worrying about the postbit looking like a giraffe.

Hopefully that made sense :)


Trip3151 18 Feb 2012 04:23

sure does thanks for the feed back I will look in too this plugin more when that postbit or postbit legacy feature gets added :) keep up the good work I have spent alot of money over at your shop buying all them plugin goodies!

No plans for vB3 I assume? :(

DragonByte Tech 18 Feb 2012 06:01

We don't have any immediate plans to port it to vB3, sorry :(


Wonksta 18 Feb 2012 06:06

Fooooo you're indirectly forcing me to upgrade to vB4.

Haha thanks for the quick reply and will be watching this closely!

Markus79 18 Feb 2012 11:06

Sounds good ;)
Is this Addon show new albumpictures and does it show bbcodes? (Video, Smilies ...)

DragonByte Tech 18 Feb 2012 11:38

There's currently no content type for Album Pictures.

It does show BBCode, all the BBCode that are allowed in "Non-Forum Areas" as per the BBCode settings.

Smilies are also supported :)

That being said, due to the fact that each content type comes with a "Preview Cut-off" setting, some BBCode may become invalidated and not parse correctly.

Example: Let's say you have a quote tag that contains more than 300 characters. When it cuts off the message, the closing [/quote] will get removed and the start tag will be left in place.

Hopefully that makes sense :)


Kraxell 18 Feb 2012 11:59

Whats different to this mod?

DragonByte Tech 18 Feb 2012 12:02

You can compare the feature lists and screenshots to find out what's different - personally I'm not so good at selling things. That's more my partner Iain's thing.

I'll link him to your query and he'll answer as soon as he's able :)

In pro version you also get whole comment system, where people could comment anything in feeds.

Coding wise, DBTech has produced good code so far. I'm not telling that this other coder produces bad code, I'm just telling that in my experience DBTech produced good code so far and I believe they will continue so.

On the other hand, only sure thing is that you try both mods on your testing site and see which one you like more. :)

nice work. I install the lite edition but i have some requests.
1. Statusupdate from forumhome. I put the textarea in the block template and it works fine without the maxlength.
2. A little preview at the block would be nice.

Is that possilbe?
