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.

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!

* 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

Alright looking into the network behaviour while its fetching posts and after IE stops fetching posts after 12 or so fetched posts.

This is how Network looks like while IE9 is fetching posts OK:


This is how Network looks like once IE9 stops fetching posts and updating the thread:



Not easy for me to hand out FTP and Admin as I've got pretty much everything bound to my IP and all that security stuff.

AJAX Threads v1.1.1:
Fix: Using "Newest First" post order had multiple deep-rooted issues
Fix: Posts deleted when hitting the "max posts" setting should now behave more consistently
Change: (Lite) There is now an option to disable the HiVelocity Hosting link if you do not wish to support DragonByte Tech by having it displayed.

Recommend putting in some kind of safety device to prevent Mod users from setting Post cutoff number lower then vBulletin's default Posts per Page if set lower then vBulletin's Max Post per page it gobbles up the first pages.

Had a lot of support questions in the morning when I set 9 Posts Cutoff when vBulletin max per page is 10 :P

The issues with IE weren't fixed, right? I just read some members said it didn't work for them in IE. I just kicked them to use Opera instead, but yeah >.<

Open IE and Chrome side-by-side.

Post a post in Chrome, it appears in IE
Post a post in IE, it appears in Chrome

Repeat ad infinitum, once the posts cutoff is reached it correctly trims old posts in both browsers.

Alright try this instead of posting via IE just let IE load all the posts you send via Chrome. So only post replies from Chrome TO IE but not IE to Chrome, try this for about 14 - 15 posts because this how long it always takes IE to stop receiving posts for me when I'm testing.

Pretty much the only thing I could get out of them, they aren't too literate in these things.

I have a strong feeling this Modification is causing havoc for people who've changed their 'Number of Posts to Show Per Page' to something other then the forum default.

I say this because some members are saying that it is clearing posts when they view threads. I think this is a big issue and related to this I posted before; http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...7&postcount=48

Alright the above issue has been confirmed in testing - pretty big issue.

In the mean time I've set thread cut off for the mod to 10000.

Please check Firefox' error console for any JS errors

It's an intended feature that it doesn't adhere to the cutoff rate, but like I said we can change it to enforce a minimum of the cutoff rate.
