Shoutbox refresh and page reload discrepancy
« on: December 09, 2011, 02:05:17 AM »
Not sure if this is a bug or odd behaviour (works as designed, not as expected).

When a message is added to the shoutbox it doesn't display with refresh (not within a minute anyway). But is does immediately show if the page is reloaded...

If it shows on page reload immediately why doesn't it show on refresh?
Same thing happens when moderator deletes a message.

BTW... i just saw your signature - i was looking for a custom mod - no takers yet.

http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=459028.0

Would really like to improve smf user search to include custom fields that are not text/textbox.
Even if it were a custom block ok.

Strange...

Admin using firefox adds to shoutbox - displays to self.

Register user with chrome refreshes - displays.


Register user using chrome adds to shoutbox - displays to self.

Admin using firefox refreshes (manual) - no update (several times). Page reload displays new shout.

Seems like refresh doesnt work after ordinary user shouts.

Im getting the same effect from registered user to registered user (with firefox). Refresh isnt showing new shouts immediately ...until page is reloaded.

I don't get these problems on my site with Firefox, so it might be the Javascript or other things running on your site, which is why I asked for a link.

About your custom search-- I don't know what you mean by it entirely, but it's possible to just adapt the current search index to include more fields, it's actually easy as long as you follow SMF's way of doing it.

One site giving trouble is on Bluehost shared hosting plan. I cant remember having problems before with the refresh - a month ago or so.
I tested different accounts and different browsers ... there might be something related to firefox 8 but I'm still having problems with Chrome and Opera. It often displays shouts after the first one with refresh, then it doesn't work until the page is reloaded. After a reload the refresh 'usually' works 1 more time before it stops working until another page reload.

I've spent too much time on this already so its a closed topic for me now.

Navigate to: Admin -> SimplePortal -> Shoutbox

Modify the shoutbox you are using (wrench).

  • Enable Caching
  • Set auto-refresh to 10 seconds

Test it after adjusting the above settings.

With all the other scripts running there is no way I would set the refresh to 10 seconds on a shared hosting plan - probably the script would be automatically restricted within hours of doing that... used to be Bluehosts answer to overuse!

Setting to 10 seconds and testing - same problem ... first 2 shouts came through then nothing after that for the third.
So its doing it on manual refresh most of the time and also an auto refresh.

PS
Not just users - admin also not working properly.

The key is that it probably works well as an administrator, member is not working - no refresh

I have a problem with a shoutbox too. As admin sometimes I can shout sometimes I can`t. Members don`t complain so much, but I see sometimes  shoutbox display same msg 3x in a row.
When I enable auto refresh every 10 sec members sayin it`s working but for me seems like little "refresh circle" is turning all the time (and I can`t shout).  Is there any hope for fix?

Here's a crazy idea. Another user reports relief from this problem by changing some seemingly-unrelated settings.  Your case is sufficiently different that this may not help at all. Still -- worth a try:

http://simpleportal.net/index.php?topic=8657.msg54159#msg54159

I have no idea what is causing these shoutbox problems, and I apologize in advance for suggesting crazy-sounding "solutions".

Unfortunately, the installation is still the same problem in SimplePortal 2.3.5. Zmianiłem anywhere in the database encoding into the local language, and nothing helped.

Im still getting this on 2.3.5 and smf 2.0.2.

Just set up a new shoutbox to discuss a dinner party but doesnt show shouts after auto refresh. Even manual refresh doesnt work many times. The only sure way to see new comments is a page reload.

One day I will test it on an unmodified board.
