    I don't know to what extent Ajax is operating currently but that is the intent, I will look into it further, it was something I used frequently as well.

    Yeah, the ability to not have to refresh the page constantly to see new posts was something I used every time I was on here, as I just leave the RDF window open, and switching back and forth when it auto-updated was amazing.

    You don't realize how nice it is, until you have to refresh the page manually like we do now. And half the time, it's filled with who 'liked' what post, and not actual posts :(

    But I know there are tons of things you are working on, so if you get to it, you do. And if you don't, I'll just be miserable the rest of my life........ ;)

    Doing server work and theme work today. Don't be surprised if something looks out of the ordinary, or doesn't work for a few moments. If it does, it should resolve itself shortly.

    LOL it bumps the shoutbox down...:

    lolx.

    --- Post updated ---

    I fixed the shoutbox position issue in the new theme I'll be pushing today/tomorrow, but for now, it should be active (live should be updated, live).

    --- Post updated ---

    Also @bkayrac - playing around with a live widget on the forum home:

    wid.

    Either way, please be the guinea pig and let me know if the live feed works now.

    On the road currently. But I'll take a peek at it when I get home for the weekend :), but with it fixed, I'll be a happy camper :)

    Sounds good. I'm waiting to see if anyone has decrypted my sleep schedule yet. I always debate posting things like "today/tomorrow" because I tend to stay up for about 30-40 hours then sleep for 15-20 lol.

    Latest tapatalk build published, should automatically update on your phones shortly. If this release is crap I think we may go back to an older release of tapatalk which had much better functionality.

    "Thanks" from vBulletin has been imported into XenForo's "Likes" system, and is now live. I will probably be changing the wording from "Like" to "Thanks" because it's less facebook-y... but either way, they have now been imported.

    Sticky threads, threads with polls and closed threads will now have their title text color coded (rather unobtrusively so it doesn't look ridiculous like some technicolor dreamcoat bs) in various listings across the forum.

    Currently working on email handling/sending functionality.

    Be advised that I still have not applied the new theme yet (I'm enabling a lot of the new features in preparation for this), which I am still planning on doing tonight, no matter what.

    --- Post updated ---

    OMG this email handling functionality is absolutely bad ass. I'm keeping this thread updated in replies as I go but for most of the changes that will be implemented today/over the course of teh next few days, they will be posted to the announcements section as well, while people are still getting the hang of the new (not this one) theme.

    Thanks, I'm glad we're nearing the end of the theme stuff - I still have not published the update yet (as you all can see), as I've been integrating some other functions that needed to be imported before doing so (i.e. post thanks database), and as I'm pretty much passing out from not sleeping I'm going to catch a few ZZzzs and resume where I left off in the morning. Can't wait to get this theme I've been working on published to the site - it brings back the whole RDF-family feeling - feeling of home - just a few more things need to be integrated (iTrader/iTrader history is the big one that's left, as we're going to be completely overhauling our classifieds sections, and making it much easier for you guys to list stuff you'd like to sell/trade/etc) and we'll be good to go.

    I haven't gone to sleep yet. Lol.

    Anyway.

    Quick search (top right of every page search box) now displays results as threads (just like vBulletin's search behavior), not threads & posts.

    Was logging in tonight and keep noticing all the nuances and features that are in this application and realize this must be a non-stop effort to achieve. I'm a desktop IT hack at work and am in awe of what you do here... as well as many of the members with the "knowledge" and passion.

    The daily improvements are obvious. We are noticing. I just can't believe your still at this, it has to be like a month now, more? So impressed by your dedication I cannot say, "Thank You" enough.

    Thanks and yeah it's an ongoing project. I've been more absent as mentioned before over the past month which is why it's taking a bit longer than I originally anticipated.
