  • Every liveblog software out there shows updates as they happen without the need for extra clicks, as opposed to this plugin’s approach of having you click “N new updates.” It would be great before it’s truly usable for this plugin to do the same – i.e. show new entries as they occur, preferably with some JS animation. ScribbleLive does it pretty well.

  • At The Washington Post we use our own in-house liveblogging plugin (example).

    We switched from the auto-update (similar to ScribbleLive) to ‘x new updates’ (similar to Twitter) on all our liveblogs within the past month. One of the problems we encountered with the auto-updates was that users were losing their place when new updates would push down what they were reading, which was especially a problem if a user was watching a video update (example) and an even bigger problem when people would post several images into a liveblog update pushing the page down even farther (example).

    The Twitter style is, in my opinion, more user-friendly.

    A hybrid solution is the way to go. Discussion here: https://github.com/Automattic/liveblog/pull/6
