Remove AJAX functions



What is this mod all about?
One of the things that bugs me a bit about vBulletin 5 is that our ad revenue dropped heavily due to pages refreshing with AJAX. Next to that, a lot of users reported to us that the AJAX functions cause a lot of different issues on the user-end. We decided to write a simple plugin to control AJAX functionality.



We're currently looking into more options as vBulletin is filled with AJAX requests. We'll update this plugin with any additional options when we find one. Please feel free to do a request by PM here on vBulletin.org.


About Duckways
We're a company with a team of developers who have been working a lot on a vBulletin 4 system for two of our customers. The largest one with over 200,000 users and 4 million posts.
This one migrated to vBulletin 5 recently and we've faced quite some issues in vBulletin 5 which we'll fix by writing custom modifications. Some of those, which are worth sharing, will be added here on vBulletin.org. If you're missing a feature or add-on, please feel free to contact us.

How to install:

- Download the zip file below
- Unzip it and upload the folder "duckwaysajax" to the "core/packages" folder in your vBulletin install.
- Go to settings and disable functions based on your preference

Version history
  • 1.0.0 - Initial release

Well, for an example:

Due to the pagination in ajax (only loading new page content into the page without refreshing the page itself) the amount of views on our ads dropped heavily. After removing the ajax functions it will refresh the page itself, and we're back to normal on amount of ad views

No need to turn off ajax unless you use the built in advertising.
Behause of the Ajax functions like change the thread Page or load More threads the Pages did not load on every action. This mod loads the page for that actions.

No Kidding. Of course it does. Why are you telling me this.
Obviously you don't know what I am talking about.
Leave me alone.

in the last month stopped working, from the console I now see that load.js is blocked (see attachment). I suppose is part of the plugin. Any hint?

Thanks!

nevermind. For some reason after importing the style from the test version, the hook
{vb:hook footer_before_body_end}

was not in the footer template anymore. Adding it worked and this mod is working just fine for 5.6.4. patch 1.

I really wish this was a functionality since it impacts revenues big time.
