. . . . . . . . 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.

Live Topic isn't dead, just released "elsewhere". Not allowed to say where though.

Why not release the light version on here? That way your software will get more exposure and feedback.

In the future we may decide to do just that. But in the meantime we feel that vbulletin.org is quite restrictive as far as modification release requirements. For now, Live Topic can be found elsewhere.

What do you mean? AFAIK you can just post a new modification thread and also mention that there is a Gold version. (and link to that)

I'll say this once again guys - this thread is for the discussion of the 3.8 product of Live Topic. The product is attached to the first post. The discussion in this thread is for that product only.

Seconds.

300 seconds = 5 minutes (what I have mine set at).

The Request Interval is in milliseconds though.

Not sure. That's fine though, I was able to get this version working a lot better in 3.8. I made some extensive changes to the product file, hooks, and javascript. Can't release it though.

I agree it isn't a big deal as they don't seem to have the product working all that well.

Why can't you release it?
