Newsfeed update | Forum

Max Sep 18 '11
Hi !
After update of newsfeed, the activity don't  appear immediatly.
For exemple, if i post something on the wall, it show immediatly. But if I refresh the page, the last activity disappear.
5 minutes later, the activity is display.
Bug of the update ?

Thanks !

I'm missing some activities in newsfeed here on my site either.

BTW, the newsfeed doesn't update itself automatically like facebook or google+ activity stream?

Sorry Max, but I didn't get your point. Would you give more details and screens?

Currently no, you need to refresh it to get new updates.

I took scrrenshots :

I publish something on the newsfeed :

I refresh the dashboard with F5 : The content disappeared :

3 minutes later, the content is back ^^ :

I got your point )
Did you put this comment "Test" on your dashboard or something else? What is your site URL?
Max Sep 21 '11
Yes I put this comment on the dashboard.
While the 3 minutes, the comment is always display on the 'main' but no in the dashboard.. Strange :/
the url is geekngeek.com
 Thanks !

Find it. 
Newsfeed has it's own cache optimization system for highload sites. This glitch is a bug in cache system. Will fix it with next update :)

Great thanks to the developper for your work !

Hi all, hope you had a good xmas and a great new years just around the corner. :)

Question !
In regards to the "live activity feed" like facebook, I currently have a few sites running latest oxwall versions and non of these have an instant update ? everybody has to refresh their page for them to see the updated post/comment etc. 

Is this right ? and if not does Oxwall intend to have this "Instant Page Update" without refresh or are my sites not working correctly. Everything appears fine when you F5 refresh but I was hoping people didn't need to do that like Facebook.

Many Thx and all the best for New Years !.

Cecil, consider about posting a suggestion to the oxwall.uservoice.com, and probably we will add it to the next build.
Cecil Jan 8 '12

Added to uservoice!

I feel Oxwall deserves this addition to the feature list and will probably bring a 10 Ten Fold reception to the "newcomers".

I must top this thread as I think many were hoping for this to be in the 1.3

Any ideas when this could be implemented ?
