NEW FORUM FUNCTIONS

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

 

We made a recent upgrade to the newest version of this forum application and here are some new functions you might be interested in:

 

FORUM SPY

No matter which forum you are browsing the FORUM SPY is at the top of every page and updates automatically every few seconds. You can see in real time any posts, photos, blog posts, or member maps locations are posted into the site. If you want to see a full page version of the FORUM SPY you can go up the the navigation menu and drop down to SPY.

 

MEMBER MAP

When logged in you can visit the member map and post your location to the Google Map. If you ever move, you can edit your location as it is attached to your user name. You can put in anything.....Address, City, State, or lat/lon. To see map and post your location go up the the navigation menu and drop down to MEMBER MAP.

 

SOCIAL NETWORK SHARING

You will notice at the bottom of every topic are popular social network sharing sites like Twitter, Facebook, Digg, Google Buzz, Delicious, MySpace and so on.

 

Have Fun! :D

Why is the loading tab at the top constantly flashing? It's kind of annoying. Am I the only one with this going on?

 

No, I have that too. I just clicked on this topic to try to figure out why. Sounds like maybe it is the Forum Spy updating.

It is the FORUM SPY updating constantly to feed posted content in real time. You can see every bit of content that gets posted into any other forum no matter which forum you are browsing.

Since the update I can not always connect to the site. Is this because the update is still in progress? Seems to be off and on.

 

Nothing to do with the update. The server that houses the main site (verticalreference.com) has been giving us a fit today and the hosting company has been turning it on and off several times today to see where the problem is.

 

The url to this forum is actually different than the main site of verticalreference.com and this forum sits on another server as well. So this forum is not really effected by the main site being down except to say that if you normally come through the main site to get here, then that would be a problem.

 

Hope that makes sense.

That what I was thinking it was alright. Cool. Still a bit annoying though! ;)

 

I changed the time that CONTENT SPY queries the board for new content from every 5 seconds to every 30 seconds. So you won't see the green loading message so often.

 

So that means it will update every 30 seconds -OR- whenever you navigate to a new page......which ever comes first. Try that and see if it less annoying.
