    I'm not sure what you mean, please leave a more detailed description. Comments are updated on real-time, meaning if you're writing a post and someone else is commenting in this thread the other users comments appears in "real-time" below your message entry field.

    When some one comment on a discussion or sends a message, every time, i need to refresh my page to see updates, is it possible to get real-time updates, without refreshing the page?

    You mean "real-time" updates in discussions-list-view i guess. There's nothing like that from what i know.

    In the dashboard, under Forum - Advanced, you can set the refresh rate, which will achieve what I think you want.

    @whu606 but there is no option saying refresh rate

    OK

    Just looked - I am using 2.18.4

    I guess you are using some version of 2.1 - I see the option isn't in there.

    In config.php you could try adding this line:

    $Configuration['Vanilla']['Comments']['AutoRefresh'] = '30';

    where 30 represents 30 seconds. I guess you could change that to different multiples.

    I'm not sure if it is designed to work in 2.1.

    For version 2.1
    it has been commented out in applications/vanilla/views/settings/advanced.php
    so it may not be functional or used in vanilla 2.1

    for vanilla 2.0.18.4 see

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    There was another discussion recently where I believe Lincoln said that feature had been disabled in 2.1 because of issues it was causing.

  • Options

    I was wondering what is the status of this feature in 2.1b2? I see that it is still disabled in code.
    Did someone tried to re-enable it ?
    What are the issues it can cause ?
    This could be really usefull in the private conversation so it looks more like a chat!

    @‌cocomang

    I don't believe Vanilla have any plans to reintroduce such a feature.

    I don't know of anyone who has successfully implemented it in 2.1x

    @cocomang‌ This feature causes a high load on servers. It was disabled for performance reasons, IIRC.

    There was talk about an auto-refresh plugin being written. I think @R_J was working on that?

    I had started that but I had started a million other things in my lifetime without finishing ;)
    I'll update what I have done so far on GitHub and post the link here for anybody wanting to go on with that... :-/

    @R_J I'm looking for that plugin now. Did you ever continue development on it?

    Nope. There are two plugins that you could combine:

    This one would be able to show you how to do the periodic lookup:

    And that one inserts comments with ajax (if I remember correctly)
