Continuing today's trend, leading up to the release of the new RDF themes, live content refreshing is now implemented again.

These requests use polling and ajax so they actually save you bandwidth when a new thread/post/etc comes through live update - no need to refresh the entire page just to see a post, it just automatically appears and loads only the data for that individual post!

Example:

As you can see, I'm reading near the end of the thread in the example and an additional post is made to the thread - which appears/gets appended to the bottom of the thread.

Supported content:
  • Threads (loads posts)
  • Conversations (loads conversation messages)
  • User Related (allows polling for updated alerts & conversations counts from anywhere)

Again, the reason I'm posting these feature announcements individually is for easier/less of an overwhelming roll-out of these features and functions.

As always, feel free to ask any questions/add comments/etc in the thread below!

Live updating posts, or the old "Live!" page we had with a list of threads/actions that happened as posts/threads were made?

I would like a live feed on the new posts page. I wonder how bad that'd be for when 50 treads come out at the same time announcing the new v2

Yeah I need to look at what our options are for another Live! feed page - I loved that thing. It wouldn't be hard to make but there's probably one out there already, though I think the "Latest Activity" page might do this - I'm not sure. Looking into it.

What, that's not a valid answer lol, I referenced two different things - you can't answer with "yes" lol.

Were you talking about the live updating posts stuff (like what I just implemented in this thread - in the OP), or were you talking about the "Live!" page with a scrolling list of threads as they are updated/posted in.

Anyway, as far as the "Live!" page goes - there does not seem to be one available exactly like our old vBulletin one, this is the closest thing I can find to it: [AddonFlare] (AJAX) Advanced Forum Stats

Woops, live updating posts was what I was referring to. Apparently my reading comprehension is inhibited tonight. Hopefully it'll straighten up by morning:beer:.
