    THis plugin causes huge performance issues if you have dozens or thousands of visitors following a liveblog, as it updates via background POST.

    Is it possible to switch the POST to GET for the public liveblog ajax functions? update and load_more

    This way people can use online cache services like cloudflare or varnish to avoid overloading the backend.

    POST is non-cachable

    Keep up the good work!

    Sorry about the typo in my earlier reply (auto-correct).

    I have changed the POST-requests you mentioned to GET-requests in version 1.6.1.

    Thanks @briandd.

    Thanks ! Looks great!

    I think there’s another issue: it seems the elb_update_liveblog requests run on all articles, whether the liveblog is enabled or disabled on the article, do you think it could be possible to enable those requests only on articles with liveblog enabled?

    Edit: I see there’s a check “elb.status !== ‘closed'”

    However i noticed many of the articles have status: “” (empty):

    “interval”:”30″,”status”:””,”liveblog”:XXX”

    i didn’t have the plugin enabled all the time so i don’t know if it’s the reason

    I realize that might be why we had huge issues when the plugin was enabled – even if not in use
