Real Time Comments is nice; it allows discussion on a post; say a blog post, in real time between the members. I implemented this in Dolphin on an older version. I added a tick box so that real time comments could be paused because if there is a video embedded in the comments (if you allow that on your site) when the comment section refreshes, it restarts the video. I meant to look at a way to auto pause the real time comments when a video is started but just never found the time. Real Time Comments would be a nice improvement to Cheetah giving it something that other platforms already have. Interaction between members is what keeps a site active.
See the following discussions over at Boonex:
You have to scroll down the page a bit. Getting help with Real Time Comments from AlexT was like pulling hen's teeth.
The other part is to have comments expanded by default; which I also implemented and which was also almost impossible to get an answer from Boonex even though dozens of members requested it.
Yes, I saw that with Dolphin but when the block refreshes, the comments fall back in proper order. That wasn't a big issue with my members, no one really complained that they needed that fixed.
Looking into this. Doing the comments in real time should not be to hard. The part i am having problems figuring out how to do is dealing with replys within a comment. Keeping those comments within other comments updated real time will not be a easy task.
Yes, this would be a huge improvement
