Just a normal re-load of the page will be done.

Rite now the plans are to have the status under the Avatar in profiles and under the avatar in viewtopic.
Sort like twitter?
I guess you could say that.

Downloaded, Installed, Works perfectly. Great job on this mod!

One suggestion, is it possible to get the status to display in the View Topic? That would be great if you included that!

Although the idea of updating status is cool but i dont think how itl work on themes which have all the links in drop down menu.. i havent installed it in my forum yet but ill be more than happy if status update option is only there in UCP and in the profile page of member whose logged in.. because atm in your forum the update option is visible to guest as well

------EDIT-----

Whenever i update the status i am automatically redirected to homepage.. is it possible that we stay in that page only after refreshing?? If we are redirected to homepage everytime doesnt it defeat the purpose of updating status from any page?? :?


PS: I hope my post isnt taken in any negative way :). I will say it again i really love your mod and i hope its released very soon.

It will work the same with a drop down menu as it does in any other menu type. Guests will not be able to see the mod in the next version, but rite now it will just add the status under "Anonymous" account so its no big deal. In the next version you will also be re-directed to the previous page and the status will show up on the viewtopic page also.
