    Christmas present for Members with 30days and 50posts... Live View!!!

    We are going to trial a new feature called Live View which tracks forum activity in near real time.

    We have made this facility available to active Members with at least 50 posts and 30 days membership.

    It is available on the AP Extra's menu...

    We would also be interested in your feedback on this. The mods and I have had it available to use for quite some time.

    (Might help us focus on the latest activity. Does it come with 10X magnification? Movie mode?)

    When I click on one of the subjects in the live view it opens the thread in a new tab. Is that how it is supposed to work?

    yes cause live view is meant to be left open so you can see as members post, thus it opens anything you click, into a new window/tab. If you sit and watch live view for a while you will it it auto-update each time a member posts to the forums.

    it can take a while if there are quite a few posts for it to catch up on, but once up to date, it should just sit there and tick over each new post as it happens

    Yes, the initial load takes a few moments (because of a slight AJAX delay due to its dynamic nature), but just leave it open as the links in a new tab/window.

    Maybe I'm missing something (definately likely). How is this different to "New Posts" and the "Activity Stream"?

    Similar, but it's more like New Posts but in real time. Activity Stream requires a click to see new stuff.

    It is 'live', the others are static and need a page refresh to show changes, the live view if you watch it, will show new posts in real time

    Yes! .. but I think it's front focusing, so the 10x magnification may not be quite as useful as you initially thought.
