Auto Refreshing for Recent Discussions Widget

edited December 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 Help

Is there a way to have Recent discussions widget to refresh itself every x seconds? Right now the changes in the discussions don't reflect on the widget unless the user reloads the whole page.

  • I think following lines from widgets.php controls the latest discussions. Is there a way to add an interval to this?

        // Retrieve the latest discussions from the Vanilla API
        $resturl = vf_combine_paths($resturl, '/');
        $data = json_decode(vf_rest($resturl));
        if (!is_object($data))
