Does the forum index page update automatic ?

#1 Post by JBoman » Sat Jan 21, 2012 11:06 pm

Whenever I am on the forum and at the index page I always have to click on link in the upper LH side to get the index to update and was just wondering if it is supposed to update automatic or not. :blindfold: Jerry

As far as I know it doesn't auto-refresh.

It does not update automatically. In Firefox you can specify "reload every" with a time interval per tab. Right click and you will see the 'reload every" command. In Google Chrome there is an extension Auto reload that does the same, but by web page.

Opera has the same right-click option.

In Opera, it is just off the right-click menu by default--though I never actually tried it to see if it works.

The reload option that richb mentions might be installed by a addon.

I have the 'Tab Mix Plus' addon installed and get the reload option.

I forget if it's available or not without that extension. I would need to create a new profile without any addons to find out.

That was going to be my next question. I get only the standard stuff I've always seen.

Sorry it is an addon. Mea culpa. I use ReloadEvery addon.
