Mod Version: 1.07b, by Coders Shack (Contributor) Coders Shack is offline
Developer Last Online: Sep 2013 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.0 Rating: (87 votes - 4.61 average) Installs: 975
Released: 10 Jan 2009 Last Update: 01 Mar 2009 Downloads: 5489
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Is in Beta Stage  

. . . . . . . . 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 would give details, but the error is listed at line blah blah blah.

It didnt work when tested with other members, so presuming it is conflicting with another mod

Coders,

My error is not related to your mod, I don't believe.. I've got a fisheye menu running and it's spitting out a few errors I'll need to resolve.

This will be unreal for live events when we've got 500-1000 people watching live... they will not need to refresh any more...

What happens if the user stays on the same page for an hour and there are 200 posts in that time? Do they have to change pages or does it just keep loading them on the same page?

How long does it take before it is counted "Live"?

And does it work with the quick reply?

Yeah, I noticed that in the video. I have yet to get it to work on my board though. There is one long boring thread with my test account typing to my Admin account...

I don't see the setting to set how long it takes for it to count as active. Would it go by the 300 automatically set as the time limit that the thread would no longer count as active?

I see the icon come up, but I never see any of the posts from my test account. :dunno:

It might help if you tell him what browser it isn't showing up in and which version of vb you are using.

(Do it show up in the test accounts showthread window when the admin account posts?)
