Are these features available?

I am part of a new discussion forum using Vanilla. We have an active user base (200+) already.

We would like some features we had in a previous forum (nodeBB) to be in this forum. I found some stuff but they are not working.

We would really like the auto refresh when people post we want it to automatically appear for others on that thread. The one plugin does not seem to work at all.

We are also curious about the plugins used on this very forum, like the comment and views counts in the blue box. We like that look.

Thank you

    If your forum is really tiny you could have auto-refesh. Otherwise don't bother unless you have the server resources to match, as not so scalable. Then you would want to modern method like websockets.

    Ajax auto refresh, you only need you users to leave a bunch of tabs open and it will cane your server.

    grep is your friend.

    If a plugin is not working, you should post your issue by using the "ask a question" link of the plugins page.

    Concerning the blue boxes:
