Recieve Instant shouts without reload
« on: July 23, 2013, 05:49:10 pm »
hello guys.
I want to suggest about modification of shoutbox in ezportal. I have got a shoutbox on my forums esa.createaforum.com. But there is a problem with shoutbox that when someone shout i.e. Hi. We can't see their shout unless we refrest or reload the forums. If this shoutbox allows us to have instant chat without reloadin the whole page it will be great. I have seen such shoutbox on other free forums web i.e. Pro boards forum shoutbox is like this.

I think thats a paid-for add on. I have the paid Ajax Chat Room, and it works like you suggest

actually no, if you go to ezportal settings there is written "Shoutbox refresh time in seconds (Enter zero to
 disable)" by defualt it has 0 value in it. But i entered 1 but it still not working. Because if the shoutbox refresh after every 1 second i would be able to recieve instant replies with 1 second delay. But its not happening.

well, I don't think that it could really refresh in 1 second - even hitting the browser refresh button takes longer than that. As far as I'm aware, nothing on the forum is displayed in real time, the browser page has to be refreshed each time. I have banner adverts with about 10 different banners, but it will only show a different banner each time the page is refreshed.

I believe that feature is disabled here due to bandwidth concerns.
All codes I make are tested on the latest version of Google Chrome and upon request of other browsers.

It is also browser dependent I think I use an iframe to reload

Its not like this that function just only refresh the shoutbox and its not alot and its totally different from reloading the whole page.
I think this function is disabled as it is not working even i tried 5 seconds in value box. Admin should have a look.

But Internet Explorer 6 is the only browser that has a decent market but doesn't support xmlhttprequest, couldn't you simply write an if statement for it?
