Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

-- Big Mike

Just noticed a way to generate the seemingly permanent last post flickering issue - I had to edit a post to correct a member's username so that he got 'mentioned' properly. Just this action set off the repeated flickering. Really interesting (to us saddos) is that it is cross-browser (in this case triggered in Edge, visible in Chrome, Firefox and Edge) so please don't say it's my fat cookies unless the rabbit hole is even deeper.

Cheers

Just seen that post of yours - and yes, the flickering starts after a few secs on that post.

I may be wrong but I think the flickering eventually stops on such posts either

a) when the short time for editing the post before the 'last edited' message shows up

or

b) when 24h have passed and the post can no longer be edited

My experience is that there are many ways to cause the flicker, seemingly random. I've edited usernames before and not had an issue.

The way to fix it is to go back and Edit the post, and make any change -- I usually just add a space between words -- and then save it.

This has worked every time I have tried it.

Bob..

Yep that stops it. Thanks Bob.

Travel Well

Just noticed some odd behavior in the last couple of days:

when searching for text via 'Advanced search', the two functions

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


appear to provide the opposite results as intended. What I mean is that if I select "Show results as Threads" I get results as posts, and viceversa.


Has anyone else come across this?


No big deal as they still work, but I thought I'd point this out.

I will check.

I made a change the other day so that when searching posts, the thread title in the result page would link you to the post in the thread as opposed to post #1 which may have no relation to the result.

But other than that, not sure what I would have screwed up.

Thanks for reporting. I did make a mistake in the code (one of those 2am fixes), and have corrected it now. Please test and report back.
