Mod Version: 1.07b, by Coders Shack (Contributor) Coders Shack is offline
Developer Last Online: Sep 2013 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.0 Rating: (87 votes - 4.61 average) Installs: 975
Released: 10 Jan 2009 Last Update: 01 Mar 2009 Downloads: 5490
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Is in Beta Stage  

. . . . . . . . Brought to you by scriptasy.com

Live Demo:
Live Topic 1.07b Demo (you must be logged in, and the topic must be "live")

Videos: 1.00b 1.06b

watch the damn videos... ^_^
Description:
This product is different from anything you have seen before, it raises the bar for forums. It will make your forums much more interactive, and also reduce server load.

Technical Details:
If a thread has been posted in X seconds then its now Live, if other users are viewing the Live topic and are on the last page they will experience a clean ajax experience while talking to other members. Once the thread is older than X seconds its no longer Live and it will now act like a normal thread. Also if a user edits one of their posts that's inside of the thread, it will be updated too so there is no longer a reason to ever have to refresh.

There is also logic for the viewer, the viewer of the thread has to be in an active state to see responses. An active user state is determined upon the users actions, if no actions were made in X seconds then the user is marked as inactive.

Also you may wonder why this could save your server bandwidth and CPU. If a user is refreshing to talk to another members the queries on a normal thread load are way more intense than the ajax call that this modification makes. So if you have 5 people talking to each other none of them have to refresh the page, all they are doing is simple page requests and one intense request when there has actual change.

You can test Live Topic with two users, you will see how amaizing this is... And probably spontaneously combust.

Found a bug? Want to request a feature?
Live Topic - Project Manager
Installation:
This is take less than 3 minutes to install, takes longer to notice its amazing feature. (you need multiple people to be active in the same topic)

Upgrade:
[1.01b to 1.XXb] Uninstall the product, then reinstall it. Overwrite all old files with new files and you should be fine.

[1.02b to 1.03b] Overwrite files, upgrade product (dont install product)

[1.03b to 1.04b] Uninstall the product, then reinstall it. Overwrite all old files with new files and you should be fine.

[1.04b to 1.05b, 1.05b to 1.06b,1.06b to 1.07b] Upgrade the product. Overwrite all old files with new files and you should be fine.
Works With (FF2, FF3, IE6, IE7, IE8, SF2, SF3, CHROME):

Hi! I want to enable Live Topic to ALL the forum, ALL the time! Not just in a number of seconds, I want to display the posts in that manner always. Would it be very data base intense? Cause I don't want any crashes or anything, what do you think?

All the subsequent posts after the last post are no longer aligned properly, as you can see in the attachment.

It continues to show posts that are displayed via ajax aka the live topic mod until a page refresh is done

It looks like you have some extra divs in there. Probably a customized template is causing the issue. Create a new style with no parent:
  • Styles & Templates > Style Manager > Add New Style
  • Parent Style: No Parent Style
  • Title: Default vBulletin
  • Allow User Selection: Yes
  • Save
Now post in a thread where live topic is active - do you still have the same problem?

Hey Lynne,

No it appears to be working perfect in default vBulletin aswell as one other custom template. So it must be a DIV thing could you point me to the template to look into finding this extra divs?

Thanks so much for the reply.

I made a post on vBulletin.com just then before reading your post so I will go delete that now

vBulletin.com won't help you with questions relating to mods, they'll refer you here.

The likely culprit is the postbit (or postbit_legacy) template, whichever your forum is setup to use.

I'd take a look at both the postbit_legacy template and the postbit_wrapper template and that is going to also point to the space_open and space_close templates.
