Have frontend view update without refresh
I was wondering how would you go about refreshing the home of the wordpress with new content or CSS without the user refreshing?
I have an interface (unlike normal wordpress installs) where it is just a viewer window and there is no user interaction – like a notice board.
I have tried using wordpress heartbeat but as of the most recent update it doesn’t work, and is pushing an incorrect JSON output.
Is there a way to fetch or poll the SQL database from jquery to compare changes and update the front end?
It wouldn’t be constant but would save having an interface refreshing every x seconds.
