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.
Topics can be turned live by admins individually, or 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.

Please remember to click the, button to the right if you installed the mod ---->

What does 'Marking As Installed' do ?

* It helps you to stay on top of updates - members who have installed modifications will be notified by us whenever new updates are available.

*
For security issues - vbulletin.org will contact all members who have installed a modification whenever a security issue is brought to their attention.

* Marking a modification as installed also helps us know how many people are using our work, giving us extra incentive to provide more features and new modifications.

We appreciate the support!

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 threads individually or per forum. You can set particular usergroups to receive the benefit, and you can even have it apply automatically to popular threads!

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

Complete Feature List (Lite)
* vBOption: Enable Automatic Updates
* vBOption: Refresh Interval
* vBOption: Idle Timeout
* vBOption: Automatic Un-Idle
* vBOption: Enable Information Bar (Tells users how often the thread refreshes, whether they're idle, and how to un-idle, etc)
* vBOption: Maximum Shown Posts
* Ability for users to manually refresh threads if Automatic Updates are disabled (cannot refresh more often than Refresh Interval regardless)
* Ability for users to manually un-idle themselves if automatic updates are enabled and the Idle Timeout is reached
* Per-usergroup setting to determine if automatic updates are enabled
* Per-usergroup setting to determine if manual updates are enabled
* Per-category setting to determine if automatic updates are enabled
* Per-category setting to determine if manual updates are enabled
* "Live" image on forumdisplay for threads that have automatic or manual updates enabled
* Posts fetched by AJAX Threads are marked as read
* Per-usergroup "duration" before a thread goes "idle".


Complete Feature List (Pro)
* vBOption: Minimum Replies
* Per-forum setting to determine if automatic updates are enabled
* Per-forum setting to determine if manual updates are enabled
* Per-thread setting to determine if automatic updates are enabled
* Per-thread ability for administrators with the "Manager" permission to override forum / usergroup settings and either enable or disable automatic updates

That query does not appear anywhere in AJAX Threads so it is unrelated to this mod.

It means your MySQL has crashed, contact your host to have them advise you

Ok I just went ahead and installed it. Got about 2000 people online now and haven't seen my server load go up at all (but then again I have only had it installed for an hour.)

Feature request: I would like to see the LIVE graphics only shown to threads which have been posted in in the last X number of minutes.

Thanks!

That'd be quite performance intensive to check

Oh well, it was an idea.

I went ahead and purchased the pro version plus the new arcade. (I will try to install the arcade tonight.)

The new version has created a problem. The first post in some threads will disappear after a few seconds.

That is not something I can replicate. Please ensure that you have not set the Post Cutoff to less than your Posts Per Page.

2%.

no but seriously, it is impossible to answer such a question. Even if it doesn't make any impact on one CPU, it may very well make an impact on a much lower-grade CPU. Et cetera.

We have had few to no reports of server load increasing, plus this version is free so you can check it out and monitor server load for yourself

Fillip,
sorry for bothering, but does the server load depend on the number of replies in the thread? I have multiple very long threads on my forum (10.000 posts long threads) - would that have an impact on my load?

Cheers
Jan

That shouldn't have an impact, but we do not have access to a test board with that number of replied so it is impossible to say.
