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.

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)

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

I think there might be an issue with this if more than one user are logged in from the same IP. I am able to use this mod, so long as no others are logged in from the same IP viewing a live topic. If there are more than one, it locks the entire site up.

When I was testing this mod, I had one user using one browser, the other user using another browser. Obviously we were using the same IP. I never had any problems. So, your issue could be a server issue and not a modification issue.

interesting - That is how I tested it - same computer, different browsers logged in as seperate users. if I logged in to the computer at home as one user and then as the other from where I was it worked just fine...I was able to reproduce at will using the same IP on the remote location.

Not sure what the deal is with that....

Any chance of getting this upgraded to work with vB 4.x? It's an awesome mod and I'd love to use it on my forums again.

I got a re-write of this hack made exclusively for me by a skillful coder.

It works like the original and works on forumdisplay (thread displays) and index page (Last Post)!

I've been having issues with livetopic for the past week, with no solution.

After changing servers, and moving databases... Live Topic stopped working. The little livetopic image on the thread title shows up, but the threads never update when some one posts in it. You have to refresh for new posts to show up. Any reason for this?

I've installed and reinstalled a couple times, with no luck.

It doesn't seem to work for me.

When I open in IE8, I get an error, and it is as follows:


Webpage error details

User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 6.1; Trident/4.0; SLCC2; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; Media Center PC 6.0; InfoPath.2; .NET4.0C)
Timestamp: Mon, 28 Jun 2010 15:17:57 UTC


Message: Object required
Line: 2
Char: 1840
Code: 0
URI: /clientscript/livetopic.js

I have no idea how to go into livetopic.js and find exactly the one thousand eight hundred fortieth character. How do I do that?

There are text editors for programmers that will tell you the character number you are at, google for 'advanced text editor' or such... off hand I don't know of one that does for sure though... I use Notepad2 but it has line numbers, not by character.
