. . . . . . . . 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.

Installation:
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)

[1.03b to 1.04b] Uninstall the product, then reinstall it. Overwrite all old files with new files and you should be fine.

I know it's because our page width is narrower, but that's not the point.

Here is a screenshot:
i think you can control this via css, if not ill make it possible in the future (its a layout bug)

Any idea on when this might make it to a release (honoring "Latest Posts First"/reverse post order, if the memory is a bit foggy)?

It was pretty ugly. I even got a text message from the server admin about it.

I don't Think This Mod Saves Server Resources If the Check Times Are Too Close (3 Secs - 3000 Milisecs), But If You Choose Wider Times (15 Secs - 15000 Milisecs, 30 Secs - 30000 Milisecs), perhaps you'll Not Overload Your Server and Still Offer Users that Extra Service of Live Topics.

Also You Can Choose Smaller Times for Threads and Users to be Consider Live, Not the 5 Minutes (300 Seconds) but Perhaps 3 Minutes (180 Seconds).

(It's an Idea).

But I Hope Coders Shack Read my Bugs Reports and the Tests I made, because if an User Stays on a Live Topic on a Different Page than the Last One, the Mod Continues Checking for New Posts even if the Thread Got Dead, Perhaps some Checking on the User's Side Is Not Working Fine or Missing, because those Extra Checks from Users on Threads that are Suppose to be Inactive can Cause Unnecessary Server Load (and that Should Not Exist because the Thread is Not Live). And Also the One I Reported About the Bug on the Hide Old Posts on Page that is Not Working Ok, because it Gets Stuck and Stops Users Replies to be Seen by the User that Post them.

But this Mod is Very Interesting For the Live Updating of the Threads, Like in Chat, I Hope Coders Shack can Find ways to Optimize it and Correct those Little Bugs so that Server Load can Keep Optimal even on Very Busy Threads and Forums.

My Best Regards. Can't Wait to Install and Test the Next Update of this Mod.
