. . . . . . . . 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.

Found a bug? Want to request a feature?
Live Topic - Project Manager
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)

Upgrade:
[1.01b to 1.XXb] Uninstall the product, then reinstall it. Overwrite all old files with new files and you should be fine.

[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.

[1.04b to 1.05b, 1.05b to 1.06b,1.06b to 1.07b] Upgrade the product. Overwrite all old files with new files and you should be fine.

You do not add that code to any hook.

There is already a plugin on global start.

You need to edit the plugin so it looks like this (erase it all and paste this in)


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Then change the line

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

to one of the conditions I posted above.

If that doesn't work then I'm sorry but this is a notoriously difficult mod to get working and why no one has produced a great working clone. A couple people have tried but they all seem to have their issues.

This actual hack has worked great for me, I haven't had any bugs. Just can't seem to modify it to disable it for guests.

The Dragon one? The Dragon one from memory allows you to specify usergroups from memory?

I just tried the one from dragon and it jumps around much more than this version. I have some very active threads during big sporting events and tonight it was almost impossible to read a reply without it jumping. If it remained static then I would prefer dragon because of the ability to disable it for usergroups and the claim that it uses less resources.
