There are no native tools for that and you can make page refreshed automatically by customizing the code only.

I cannot tell you what code to modify because I don't have enough technical skills for that. All I can suggest is using JS code for auto-refresh in the Custom HTML widget. But that can be frustrating when you're composing a status and page refreshes.

There was a post somewhere about adding an auto refresh to the site but it was pointed out the method used would refresh the whole page so in the middle of creating a post the site could in theory refresh and your typing lost.

Yes Michael it was me that spoke about it but it was a pain to use because it affected when people were trying to post and would just refresh the page and they had to start their post again. This really needs looking into though.

Hi folks, that looks a bit dirty in regards to its refreshing the entire page, there is a post about this also and I've also just added my request for this to be looked into at uservoice oxwall.

Check this thread and let's hope we can get a simple update for it.

Well smaller programms like sharetronix they do have an auto refresh for a new post! We must find a solution

Guys, what about posting this on our suggest board http://oxwall.uservoice.com/forums/13756-suggest-ideas ? This is the best place to see how important the feature is. 
Cecil Jan 10 '12
