Auto refresh?

(1/1)

Andrew:
Hi,

Any chance of getting an auto-refresh set up for the forum? I'm lazy, I admit, and like the idea of being able to allow the forum to refeesh itself in the background while I'm working, so that I don't have to do it manualy to see if there are new posts.

I agree. It does help.

-Sorry to piggyback, but another suggestion: Is there any way to include a Go up button/tab - to scroll up to the top of the screen or Go down button to the opposite. Will also make life easier, for us lazy people...

If I understand your question correctly, Ctrl & Home will take you to the top and Cntrl & End will take you to the bottom

RSS feeds do all of that in a manner much more accessible. I use Google Desktop to deliver feeds and I get a direct link to the thread and a short summary of the latest post.

@Prince, Home/Page up/Page down/End work just fine in Firefox - it can certainly be implemented as a floating control of sorts or links next to each post within a topic, but it might make the pages even more busy visually.

@Andrew, I will look into auto-refresh - it could work quite nicely on the board views or on the "recent posts" page. Hopefully someone's already made an extension to do that :) Timber's suggestion is also a good one - you can subscribe to the whole forum using RSS. It would have been great if you could subscribe to an individual section or a search query - that's not currently possible with this version of SMF.
