Forum Live Feed & User Wall lets you see a continuously updated feed of activities on the forum, with a powerful set of customisation options for sources of information.

Uses
If you've wished for a Facebook-like feed for your forum, this mod is for you.

This mod adds 2 distinct features to your site. First a live feed showing actions performed by everyone on the forum, from new threads and posts to things like new avatars or signatures, your members can customise their feed and keep up to date with everything that's going on, right as it happens.
Secondly every user also has their own wall that displays what they have been up to. This lets users see what their friends have been doing and join in!
With advanced privacy configuration options and configurable preview options for each content type, this mod compliments other modifications like InfoPanels and produces a more detailed and verbose feed of the happenings on the forum.

Hi there got this error


Warning: require_once([path]/dbtech/livewall_pro/contenttypes/profilepictures.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in [path]/dbtech/livewall/includes/class_core.php on line 688

DragonByte Tech 18 Feb 2012 04:05

I updated the files. Could you please re-download the .zip file and re-upload /dbtech/livewall/includes/class_core.php and see if that works?


Fillip

Trip3151 18 Feb 2012 04:16

Nice that works so let me get this right this does not put the update status under your username in postbit? It just gives me a wall full of feeds?

DragonByte Tech 18 Feb 2012 04:20

That is correct :)

We may implement additional display options in the future, but they will most likely be revolved around the profile and not the postbit.

Postbit space is rather limited, and we want admins to be able to allow people to post a microblog (think Twitter) length status - hence the default 140 characters ;) - without worrying about the postbit looking like a giraffe.

Hopefully that made sense :)


Fillip

Trip3151 18 Feb 2012 04:23

sure does thanks for the feed back I will look in too this plugin more when that postbit or postbit legacy feature gets added :) keep up the good work I have spent alot of money over at your shop buying all them plugin goodies!

Wonksta 18 Feb 2012 05:57

No plans for vB3 I assume? :(

DragonByte Tech 18 Feb 2012 06:01

We don't have any immediate plans to port it to vB3, sorry :(


Fillip

Wonksta 18 Feb 2012 06:06

Fooooo you're indirectly forcing me to upgrade to vB4.

Haha thanks for the quick reply and will be watching this closely!

Markus79 18 Feb 2012 11:06

Sounds good ;)
Is this Addon show new albumpictures and does it show bbcodes? (Video, Smilies ...)

DragonByte Tech 18 Feb 2012 11:38

There's currently no content type for Album Pictures.

It does show BBCode, all the BBCode that are allowed in "Non-Forum Areas" as per the BBCode settings.

Smilies are also supported :)

That being said, due to the fact that each content type comes with a "Preview Cut-off" setting, some BBCode may become invalidated and not parse correctly.

Example: Let's say you have a quote tag that contains more than 300 characters. When it cuts off the message, the closing [/quote] will get removed and the start tag will be left in place.

Hopefully that makes sense :)


Fillip

Kraxell 18 Feb 2012 11:59

Whats different to this mod?
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=277545

DragonByte Tech 18 Feb 2012 12:02

You can compare the feature lists and screenshots to find out what's different - personally I'm not so good at selling things. That's more my partner Iain's thing.

I'll link him to your query and he'll answer as soon as he's able :)

In pro version you also get whole comment system, where people could comment anything in feeds.

Coding wise, DBTech has produced good code so far. I'm not telling that this other coder produces bad code, I'm just telling that in my experience DBTech produced good code so far and I believe they will continue so.

On the other hand, only sure thing is that you try both mods on your testing site and see which one you like more. :)

Hey,

nice work. I install the lite edition but i have some requests.
1. Statusupdate from forumhome. I put the textarea in the block template and it works fine without the maxlength.
2. A little preview at the block would be nice.

Is that possilbe?

BlueCheri 18 Feb 2012 14:46

Many thanx, seems to be nice work.

Installed, hope everything is fine.

Now setting and checking, how it works, will post details here.

R4rifi 18 Feb 2012 16:11

Our mod is a full live facebook style wall, with user customisable content, content previews, privacy permissions for who does and doesn't see posts about you, a commenting system (in pro), as well as a full user-wall system where each user has their own wall filled with events relating only to them - again just like on facebook.

Hope that clears up the difference ^.^

BlueCheri 18 Feb 2012 17:45

Hello Iain,

I think have done all steps correctly, still something is wrong.

Can not make it, help is required please.

The forum url is: www.offwalk.com

Thanx in advance.

G!

DragonByte Tech 18 Feb 2012 19:17

An error message is more useful than a site URL :)

Could you re-post these over at our forum as feature suggestion threads? That ensures they won't get lost in the mists of time as we plan new versions :)

Any chance of getting a content type added for photopost vbgallery and vba dynamics?

I would gladly buy the pro version for those features alone.

pete_brady 20 Feb 2012 18:49

and a content type for your Advanced Post Thanks / Like mod would be nice...

DragonByte Tech 20 Feb 2012 19:12

We will definitely add APTL content types, that's on the todo list :)

I do not see these other functions like a user wall, where is this?

bposner 20 Feb 2012 21:13

Very nice, you guys always make nice stuff. Made a forum block with it as well.
Look forward to enhancements.
Thanks!

GhettoTech 20 Feb 2012 21:14

Any chance on giving away a few pro versions for us to test for you, so we can provide feedback and all that :)

Your best bet is to suggest this in a thread over at the support forums to make sure it gets noticed and taken into consideration each time we're designing a new version =)

As far as adding support for 3rd party products, that tends to be something we do after we have added the feature requests and 1st party integration, so it will probably be a bit before those get added unless there are several requests for the integration from pro customers over at DBTech.

We try to put features that everyone can make use of ahead of things like 3rd party integration that most people won't use, unless a number of our customers request the feature. For obvious reasons requests like that tend to be given priority :P

Iain

thecore762 21 Feb 2012 06:35

Nominated.
Once again DbTech making excellent plugins!

pete_brady 21 Feb 2012 09:11

[spoiler] tag awareness would be nice too...

DragonByte Tech 21 Feb 2012 10:40

This mod is aware of all BBCode that can be used in non-forum areas as per the vBulletin options. We have no further control over BBCode parsing.

Note that if the text between BBCode tags go over the preview limit, BBCode will not parse correctly.

tarzan22 21 Feb 2012 16:05

I can not find the option to delete unwanted messages

regards

DragonByte Tech 21 Feb 2012 16:10

There is currently no way to delete status updates.


Fillip

tarzan22 21 Feb 2012 16:26

Ok, then you can use it to spam, etc.

GhettoTech 21 Feb 2012 18:08

If I have the pro version and "comment" on someone's response to a thread THROUGH the Live feed, does it post to the actual thread itself? or would these responses be separate?

DragonByte Tech 21 Feb 2012 18:28

It doesn't, but in a future version the Pro version will display comments underneath each post :)


Fillip

AURFSCAN 21 Feb 2012 20:18

Hi Fillip,

testing this and must say I like it very much.

I think the ability for the user to delete their status's is a must and displaying comments under/at bottom of post in thread would be great.

:)

Also a fix for resizing images on wall

add to additional.css or dbtech_livewall.css


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


GhettoTech 21 Feb 2012 20:37

If a user uploads a picture or video, how does the feed react to it?

DragonByte Tech 21 Feb 2012 20:52

It doesn't react at all, as there's no integration with the attachment system at the moment :)

It's not currently on the todo list, but that can always change :)

AURFSCAN 22 Feb 2012 02:44

mod/admin editable status's and comments needed with this for sure. When i think about it, comments posted via wall not really needed to be posted to posts in thread, its pretty good as is. Attachments on wall, that would be good.

Alibass 22 Feb 2012 03:19

Demo pics look nothing like lite version, what are they from the pro version?

Not impressed with mod, what good is it to post a status update when you cant post a comment to it in the lite version.

Lite version looks nothing more than a chat board... looks like we are going to have to uninstall this one unless there are some decent updates coming forth in the next release.

sticky 22 Feb 2012 03:43

Nothing in the feed for when people add or remove a friend?

Mr_Running 22 Feb 2012 03:50

These guys are smart and are great developers.
Status will be worked on :)
I would like to see an option for it to works with the forums.
Posts in thread from Live Feed

Giving the user the options of the forum view or the Live Feed view by clicking the navbar!
Somewhere down the road maybe an option to turn of forum and just view the live feed.
Now we are talking dynamite :) ...with additional ongoing additional pages :p
Maybe a Pro feature.

Edit: Whoops did I say that...:p

That's because vBulletin does not currently store when a "relation" (i.e. contact or friend) was formed, so there's no way for me to tell if the friendship was new or old.

It still posts to the wall (and more importantly to your User Wall), letting people keep up to date with your status.

Not sure I follow you here... chat board? The lite version can't be used as a chat board...

I think you may have completely misunderstood the mod to be honest. The point of it is to provided a "Live Feed" of what's going on in the forum/with users. It lets users keep up with recent posts/actions in real time. If that's not what you're looking for this isn't the mod for you =)

You are out of your mind.

This is one of the best "Facebook Wall" plug-ins to date. I will be upgrading soon to the Pro version for the commenting as well. You can't blame them for not wanting to give the cow for free here...

If I could have only one feature added to this, it would be that the "Users Wall" would be a tab located in the User Profile section. This would encourage more people to use their pages just like in Facebook... please please please! Make it so!

Entries per page

This setting controls how many wall entries are shown before a "Load More" link is displayed.

How does this work? I dont see it on my install or on the feed @ dragonbyte tech

DragonByte Tech 22 Feb 2012 18:43

Whoops, that was intended for a feature that wasn't able to be included for technical reasons. I will get the wording changed in the next version :)

Pretty sure I was commenting on the mod, but whatever.. if you don't like the mod then you have no reason to further comment in this thread.. k thanks bye...

Anyways, is there any information on when the next version of this mod should come out?

You can adjust preview character length in admincp. Keep increasing the count until you find some sort of balance between a preview and displaying a full post.. up it a little, mines set at 300.. works good

thecore762 23 Feb 2012 03:40

I already posted this @ dbtech but I wanted to share this with the other users @ vb.org since probably some of you guys don't visit their site.

With Live Wall

http://www.webpagetest.org/result/120223_5S_3B357/
http://www.webpagetest.org/result/120223_ZD_3B358/

Basically what I am saying by that is that there is at least 4 seconds page render time difference.
It's pretty bad, really bad for me.

This is an excellent plugin, hopefully there will be some improvements done.

Here is what I put in the settings:


Entries Per Page 10 (def 20)
Refresh Rate 60 (def 30)

Time Between Status Updates 15 (def 5)

Yes, I know :) thanks
I was only responding to answer the question.
Now, 300 may be a work around. If users are posting 300 or less.

I went looking and found this. :up:

The big question is will you create this for the loyal 3.8 series users?
I think I speak on behalf of most if not all 3.8 series users to say that we would really appreciate it.



Hit the to the left if you would appreciate this for use in the 3.8 series.

I see difference only on first page load, not repeated.

Anyway, yes, optimizations if possible are always welcome.

AURFSCAN 23 Feb 2012 21:47

Fillip & Iain

I'd like to see an option for the Entries per page (Forum Live Feed)

eg. show Last

1 hour
3 hours
6 hours
12 hours
24 hours

or similar.. :)

and possibly simlilar option for User Wall

eg. show Last

1 week
2 weeks
1 month


else pagination up to a set limit


or similar :D

DragonByte Tech 23 Feb 2012 23:12

That's sadly not feasible for technical reasons :(
It would create a lot of server load to check the date stamp instead of just fetching the x latest entries.

Time Between Status Updates 15 (def 5)

Since this was cross-posted here and on our forum, I'll share the results here:

Depending on the size of your forum database, having the sidebar enabled can add load time such as the numbers reported here.

Disabling the forum sidebar block for LW returned the load times to normal, so it is 100% safe to leave the mod enabled even if you don't want to take the performance hit the sidebar presents :)

Would we need all members to do that Fillip or Is there a global way to do so sir?

DragonByte Tech 24 Feb 2012 22:20

Do it in the Content Type Manager in the AdminCP.

Just a little note that for feature requests if possible it's best to post them in the support forums at DBTech - we have a custom system there to track them to make sure they don't get lost/overlooked. Posts on vB.org tend to get lost in the shuffle/forgotten >.<

This update is pure gold!
My forums are much faster now! Also the option to update the settings if your site loads slow in admincp to your liking is a huge plus

Is it possible to exclude some certain forums to show posts on Live Feed?
Thanks,

No worries.. gotta break out of the vb.org junkie posting habit. .lol

SpikeSaunders 25 Feb 2012 19:25

Looks quite great.
Is it possible to Follow a particular user?

We were hoping to use it like a 'soundoff' table where the latest show or release is announced by a user part of a particular usergroup with access to post. Then any other member can 'follow' that user to ensure they get notified of each show/released. :)

ProFifaLeagues 25 Feb 2012 22:38

Any way to turn off the Wall on the Profile and Just use the One In the Forum blocks?
Would be a great way for our setup to run this mod for our needs...

The Pro version does let you view a "user wall" but it does not let you follow a user in that manner. This is due to the fact that LW simply reads off the other tables (say, for instance the posts table for Posts) and doesn't create entries of its own. That makes it extremely challenging to do notifications, but extremely easier to add new content types and does not depend on hooks being available.

There is no profile wall, you can disable the navbar tab via the settings :)

What do the links in the code "http://ajax.googleapis.com...." do in the script? They preload on pages and slows it down some. Is that a file that could be pulled from the server directory instead? Thanks. Great work on the mod as always. Think I will upgrade because the feature to reply from the live wall is a convenient.

DragonByte Tech 28 Feb 2012 10:22

It fetches jQuery, the JavaScript library I use :)

Having it remote hosted is faster than locally hosted, because you can only fetch 1 locally hosted element at a time, whereas you can fetch locally hosted + remotely hosted items at the same time :)

Forum sidebar preview is f-ucked as content preview is not resized and images jump out of the forum borders.

It's disappointing you choose not to let us know in the form of a feature request / bug report, but oh well. Can't please everybody I guess :)

meaters 02 Mar 2012 16:10

I highly appreciated you work and love your mods.

As I said threads with pics wrapped in [img] tags are not resized in forum side block and if it is a large photo it breaks the forum.

DJ-Dez 02 Mar 2012 18:09

Love the plugin Ian, could you try get this on 3.8? How long could it take? Looks great, shame I can't use it fully though.

Schoelle 02 Mar 2012 18:10

Same problem as with DavidsMods live feed addon.
If you have enabled quick reply and submit a reply containing special characters like the german umlauts they are totally messed up. Only after refreshing the page they are shown as they should.
