    Question Real-Time notification pop ups?

    I'm sorry to ask a vague question, but I can't find the answer to this anywhere. I have a site that involves users. What I would like to know is if there is a code or some type of programming that would notify a user of a different user's action. For example, USER A adds content to one section of my site, and USER B gets a notification "pop-up" I call it while he is looking at any other page on the site, without reloading the page, just popping up right when it happens. Things like, "USER A has just logged on". Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

    You might want to try ajax. Once you understand the basics, you can use Jquery Ajax to help you.

    You would need a fall back for users that do not have javascript enabled.

    Would the AJAX actually be able to show something on another user's screen at the exact moment I do something on my screen? If we're on different pages of the site? That's the most important part. Thank you for your post to my question, EVERY bit helps me!!
