AJAX Threads: What is it?
AJAX Threads brings your threads alive, making them automatically refresh without needing to reload the page.

Uses

AJAX Threads is the ideal product for forums with busy threads or which deal with any sort of "event" be that TV shows, sports or game releases!
AJAX Threads allows you to make topics "auto update" without the user having to refresh. This can give performance benefits when applied to threads which receive a lot of refresh requests, and can increase user participation.
Topics can be turned live by admins individually, or you can set whole forums to have their threads be live automatically. You can even allow only VIP usergroups to have threads refresh automatically to increase subscription numbers.

What does 'Marking As Installed' do ?

* It helps you to stay on top of updates - members who have installed modifications will be notified by us whenever new updates are available.

*
For security issues - vbulletin.org will contact all members who have installed a modification whenever a security issue is brought to their attention.

* Marking a modification as installed also helps us know how many people are using our work, giving us extra incentive to provide more features and new modifications.

We appreciate the support!

Major Features:

Automatically Refresh Threads: Users will now see new posts in "real time" without having to refresh the page

Performance Benefits: If your forum receives lots of refresh requests on threads being posted in often this can put a lot of strain on your server - AJAX Threads will greatly reduce server resources used in those situations by refreshing only the minimum information required.

Total Control: You can set threads individually or per forum. You can set particular usergroups to receive the benefit, and you can even have it apply automatically to popular threads!

* vBOption: Refresh Interval
* vBOption: Idle Timeout
* vBOption: Automatic Un-Idle
* vBOption: Enable Information Bar (Tells users how often the thread refreshes, whether they're idle, and how to un-idle, etc)
* vBOption: Maximum Shown Posts
* Ability for users to manually refresh threads if Automatic Updates are disabled (cannot refresh more often than Refresh Interval regardless)
* Ability for users to manually un-idle themselves if automatic updates are enabled and the Idle Timeout is reached
* Per-usergroup setting to determine if automatic updates are enabled
* Per-usergroup setting to determine if manual updates are enabled
* Per-category setting to determine if automatic updates are enabled
* Per-category setting to determine if manual updates are enabled

Unfortunately not, no. That'd be the vBulletin function to init the postbit, which we have to use in order to make stuff like Quick Edit and such work

this still happens. I got rid of the manual fix from a while back, so basically I get the prompt to Refresh or Stay on the Page quite often, it seems like it happens if someone maybe posts at the same time as me but that has never been consistent. All I know is that it happens often when there's more traffic than usual, maybe 3-8 people discussing a topic in real time, like a sports game in progress.

It just seems to defeat the purpose of "live" automatic refreshing when about 1/3 of the time the screen has to refresh completely itself.

Unless it can be reliably reproduced, I have no way of debugging it

You may want to consider enabling error logging to file in your PHP setup, so you can see if there's any PHP errors that are intermittent.

Is there a way to disable or delete the image which says "LIVE" in front of all threads in bold red? This looks really strange in my forum.

Is there any way to have Metafilter-style new post alert behavior?

IE: If there are no new posts, nothing shows up. When they're are there, a little box pops up with how many new posts there are, and asks if you want to see more. It also tells you to reload the page when it goes too long with no updates. It works a little bit like how new tweets are loaded on Twitter.

My users really love the plugin and I've gone ahead and bought the pro version, but they really don't like how the automatic updates work now.

Unfortunately that would require a significant re-write of the way the mod works

You can post a suggestion in our forums: http://www.dragonbyte-tech.com/forumdisplay.php?f=107 and we'll take it into consideration

You need to have new posts, for refresh to work.
