. . . . . . . . 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.

Things I am required to tell you i guess:
  • installs are tracked (upon install track.scriptasy.com is pinged, it just tracks installs not uninstalls or anything else. This can be removed in the product XML)

Very cool. It does work a bit differently in firefox than in Safari though. If I post in Safari, it updates right away in Firefox. But, if I post in Firefox, it only gets updated in Safari if I post again in Safari. (If that makes sense.) Not sure if that is just because the two browsers are different or what. (My Safari 'user' was also a regular Registered User, whereas the firefox 'user' is an Admin, but I don't think that matters since I didn't see usergroup options at all.)

As I said, pretty cool!

(Gotta go server dinner, thus the quick review.)
