the only thing drawing resources is the 1 page of that thread that is currently being viewed
Not entirely true
it only uses resources when its clicked and the info is required by the browser once its open/downloaded then its using nothing
I must say though the OP mentions chat thread...are you talking about a chat room or just a topic on a forum?
If you are talking about a chat room then yes some chat rooms refresh everything open in the window every few seconds which will use more resources
but phpBB doesn't have a chat room and that would then be an extension issue!
can the OP clarify whether you mean a chat room or just a topic on a forum
