vB Version: 3.7.x Rating: (11 votes - 4.55 average) Installs: 106
Released: 14 Jan 2009 Last Update: 01 Mar 2009 Downloads: 750
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.

Tested on Vb 3.7.0 and works perfect so far. Thanks again!

One thing that would be nice is a notification of some sort if your on another tab or window, etc. Not sure if this is a realistic feature, though.

Tried this in vb 3.8.0 and it doesn't work, I get no errors, just nothing updates automatically. Wonder what code is different in the new version of vbulletin.

I am using Firefox and it only posts the live topic when you reply again using the quick reply.... same issue in IE 7 even in compatability mode

OK will edit this:

It works when typing in IE 7 and it shows in Firefox, but when you type in firefox it dont show in IE 8 nor Google
browser, Also not working when you type in Google chrome to other browsers

IE to other browsers is great but that seems to be the only one atm

instead of refreshing the page to see if anyone has replied. Leave this thread open. For example, you just posted that message above at 15:26 its now 15:35. You have options to determine how long the thread is deamed active, if it was set to 10 min then my reply would automatically pop up below your thread. It saves on bandwidth i guess.

Does not work at the moment on my vb 3.8.0

If your waiting for a reply on a thread and someone posts you do not need to refresh the page, it will use ajax to add the post, normally anyway, there are a few browser issues!!!
