Install LiveBlogger via Package Manager.

Now go to System Settings > liveblogger and set Update Interval to the number of milliseconds to wait in between updating content.

Grant access for the liveUpdate Template Variable for the Templates you\'d like to use with LiveBlogger.

Include jQuery in your Template if it isn't already and anywhere after include the liveblog-script Chunk like so:
