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.

Tested this on one of my Forums (Uninstalled Live Topic to try this one)

Immediately hit some bugs during testing.

1. It appears the new posts are fetched as specified in Chrome but no updates were fetched when testing second account on IE9. I tried a few times and each time the only browser fetching the updates was Chrome, IE9 would not update posts even when clicking 'Reload'.

2. It seems like it duplicates the last received post from Account #2 when I make a post from Account #1 - On refresh the duplicated post seen prior to refresh isn't there which is probably a good sign.

Apart from that pretty pleased with how it functions straight out of the box especially pleased that I can run this Mod without modifying it to work with my Google Adsense Mod that inserts ads into first posts for guests (had this issue with Live Topic but not this!)

But until the above can be resolved it will sadly remain disabled

Another issue but this time in Chrome the first say 5 posts show up in the reply via Quick Reply the 6th and 7th posts do not show up when I press quick reply, they're not even sent to the server - when refreshing the browser they do not appear even though I clicked Post Reply in Quick Reply.

The symptom of this is instead of quickly using AJAX to send the Quick Reply the whole browser reloads for a quick reply which is not suppose to happen. When this happens after clicking post reply via quick reply the post never gets registered by the server.

Seems to be happening frequently.

Update The only time IE9 seems to fetch the posts is when I submit a post via IE9 and it refreshes via AJAX to show my post it ALSO fetches the subsequent 10 posts I posted 30 seconds ago via Chrome.

Unfortunately I am at present unable to test anything in Internet Explorer because it chaincrashes - it's not even open for 2 seconds before "Internet Explorer has stopped working blah blah".

I'm also unable to replicate any duplicating post issues. I tested it like so:
- Made quick reply from one account in Chrome
- Looked in Firefox on another account, then made a quick reply after the post had loaded

Even vice versa I had no issues.

Could you please try disabling all other modifications? Maybe another mod is causing a conflict here...

Disabled all mods issue is still there with IE.

I just tested (quickly) in Firefox and the Modification works and doesn't appear to be having any issues so perhaps this is isolated to IE9. Let me know when you can get IE9 working on your end you might be able to reproduce the bugs in light of this info.


UpdateDuplication still occurs in Chrome when testing with Chrome and Firefox

Uhm, I'm not exactly sure what the first two mean, but does it mean it was fixed?

Also, something's ugly: http://prntscr.com/44i8u <- how to disable that image from showing?

1. Yes, it was not noted in the changelog because it was not a reported issue at our forums.

2. Disable the threadbit_display plugin for this product.

Then there must be something else going on because Chrome absolutely does not duplicate anything here. Could you please PM me with FTP info and an AdminCP account with at least Can Admin Styles?

Have you tried with IE9 yet? That's where the real issue is.

I can tolerate some duplication here and there but the fact it doesn't work with IE9 (not sure of other version of IE means I won't be rolling this out)

I fixed IE by restoring it to default settings, and I am unable to reproduce any issues with AJT in IE9.

Do you have the IE7 compatibility header turned on? If so, try turning that off. It should be somewhere in Style & Language Options I think.

Wonderful!

Now IE9 is receiving posts without the need to refresh. It was stuck in IE7 Developer Mode.

However I am still sadly seeing duplication on Chrome everynow and then AND randomly when sending a post via Chrome in succession some posts won't actually go through to the server, it looks like it get's sent but doesn't appear in either browsers.

Update
It seems to stop fetching New Posts after I try to send the 11th post. The interesting thing my limit on number of posts per page is 10! So I think the script is getting confused on page change when the 10 is reached?

When the "posts per page" limit is reached, it crops the old posts from the display

At least, that's how it works on my test install

If you want me to look into the issues specific to your forum then could you please PM me with FTP info and an AdminCP account with at least Can Admin Styles?

Alright further update on the issue.

If I am replying via IE9 and monitoring the thread on Chrome it doesn't stop fetching new replies after 11 or 12 replies it just keeps going and going in Chrome as long as I keep making new posts via IE9 Chrome fetches them nicely.

This leads me to believe that it's another issue isolated to Internet Explorer
