This simple add-on will show who is replying to a thread when you view the "Thread Information" block to see who is browsing a thread. On a site where help is given to users, this can potentially save time for those who might decide to post help, only to discover they have been beaten to the punch by someone else.

Updates:

Version 1.1:
  • Added setting to set which usergroups can view who is replying.

Version 1.2:
  • Minimized the number of queries involved.
  • Now shows who is editing a post as well.

Version 1.3:
  • Text added to active users now phrased.

Installation:

In AdminCP go to Plugins & Products ► Manage Products ► Add/Import Product.

Click on "Choose File" and browse to the product xml file that was packaged in the .zip file.

Click "Import"

You MUST set your settings to enable the mod.
Each setting has an explanation of its use.

This can be enabled by following:

AdminCP ► Thread Display Options (showthread) ► Show Users Browsing Threads

And setting this to one of the following options:

Yes, Alphabetical to all visitors - This option will show an alphabetized list of users to guests and members.
Yes, Random to all visitors - This option will show a random order list of users to guests and members.
Yes, Alphabetical to members only - This option will show an alphabetized list of users to members only.
Yes, Random to members only - This option will show a random order list of users to members only.

Thanks! Go it.

Now, how it will show replying next to the user name?

Is this like instant when someone starts typing ? Does it work in quick reply or advance reply only?

I don't see it to show on my forum... when someone is replying.

Thanks,

Sorry, it's not a dynamic display...when you enter a thread, if someone is composing a reply at that moment using the advanced editor (that is, they have loaded the 'newreply' script), then you will see that they are replying. It works much like the "Who's Online" page with regards to obtaining a user's location, but it does not auto update.

Hello,

I do a new tread with a regular user , then i go and i try to post from within the advanced side with a admin account user id, so when i start typing few words , i go in the regular user side and refresh the page to see if it say typing ... that's how i do it. I even try from different ip's to make sure maybe if you do it from same ip will not say replying! but still don't see that "replying" next to the user id...interesting.

Thanks.

Hmm, this is weird ! not sure if this suppose to work like this!

So i create a new tread as regular user and then i reply with other user id, then if i reply with the user id that i have created the new tread i see "replying" by this id that i have created the tread, but the other user id's don't see the "replying" ...Hmmm.

Users who are already browsing the thread will not see a user as replying unless that refresh the page or navigate away from the thread and then back.

You will only see a user who is replying if they are replying at the time you load the page...the display does not dynamically change...just as it does not change when a user leaves a thread...you will still see that user as browsing the thread until you reload the page.
