Default Spy Live: New Forum Feature

Today we added a new link that I wanted to point out to you.

If you look at the top you will see a link Spy now located in the menu bar next to Today's Posts.

http://www.smallbusinessbrief.com/forum/vaispy.php

The Spy link takes you to a page which automatically refreshes to show you the most recent posts submitted at the forum along with the first few lines of text.

Let us know what you think of it, and of course if you have any problems with it.

Interesting feature, I like it Might even lure me into forums I don't usually look at if I see an interesting thread...

One suggestion, if I may. Would it be possible to change the behavior of the "subscribed threads only" checkbox at the top to refresh the screen immediately and only show posts in subscribed threads when I check the option? Right now it leaves the screen as is and only adds new posts if they are in a subscribed thread, which is helpful too of course, but I would find it more helpful if I could limit the entire display to subscribed threads only. Possible?

Hi Ray,

I'll look into it. It's a plugin that was made available on the vbulletin.org site so I'll go see if they have any new features, or plan to add some.

Thanks!

Robert

Ah, so you're at the mercy of the plugin designer... Well, maybe there are more requests for a feature like that and it gets implemented...

Robert,

If you look at the source code for the plug-in, you will find a section that reads:
Code:
<input type="checkbox" id="subscribe" value="1">
 &nbsp;subscribed threads only
It should be changed to read:
Code:
<input type="checkbox" id="subscribe" value="1" onclick="history.go(0)">
 &nbsp;subscribed threads only
if you want to implement the "refresh page on checkbox select" idea that Ray presents.
I didn't see "vBispy" or "vaispy" in the list of plugins, otherwise I would have changed it, myself.

Spy Live is the standard. It will create more traffic by allowing topics to be found faster. Spy Live is a much needed feature that will benefit the forum and the user.
