Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files  

About
This is a Digg-style spy for seeing what's going on in your forum in realtime.

This is something I originally made about 4 years ago. Now that I rewrote it for vBulletin 4 (it also now uses the bundled YUI for animation), I decided to also wrap it up as a product package and release it for the world to use.

Installation
  • Put the spy.php file in your forum folder.
  • Put the digitalpoint_spy.js file in your clientscript folder.
  • Install the product-digitalpoint_spy.xml product under AdminCP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product
You can see a live version in action here:
http://forums.digitalpoint.com/spy.php


1.1.0 Update
  • Moved JavaScript to external file (works around template parsing bug with early versions of vBulletin 4.0.x).
  • XML generation is done with vBulletin's XML Builder class (let it deal with weird characters).
  • Switched JavaScript library to from YUI to jQuery (for an end user, it means better animations).
  • Changed do=xml to do=feed (works around servers that are overly protective and think they are trying to be hacked and blocking the request).

Not really sure why it would do that unless the postid in the spy table didn't match up to one in the post table. I suppose if you want to try to debug it, go look in the spy table and make sure one of the results that spews "Unknown" has a postid matching up to one in the post table.

might be a dumb question but what is the proper way to have it only load 5 items on launch? I don't mind a long list once it gets rolling in real time but my members get a bit confused when it loads the initial batch. They think "whoa, i can't keep up with this activity it's too crazy" and close it down.

The table already manages itself and never gets large.

There is no time field since things are happening in real time, it's all pretty much "now".

Got it working. My fault. Is there a way to exclude Threads and/or Forums?
