The community is one of the friendliest you will find on any subject, with members going out of their way to help others. Some of the primary differences between futures io and other trading sites revolve around the standards of our community. Those standards include a code of conduct for our members, as well as extremely high standards that govern which partners we do business with, and which products or services we recommend to our members.

At futures io, our focus is on quality education. No hype, gimmicks, or secret sauce. The truth is: trading is hard.

With futures io, you can find honest trading reviews on brokers, trading rooms, indicator packages, trading strategies, and much more. Our trading review process is highly moderated to ensure that only genuine users are allowed, so you donít need to worry about fake reviews.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading sites:
  • We are here to help. Just let us know what you need.
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive in our community.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendors advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, we can help you find it.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Hi Mike,

I just tried clicking on the last item on today's Q&A mailing here:

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



And then I got this page, which looks like it's there to stop a non-Elite member from accessing Elite content:

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



From this page, I was in fact then able to go to Elite content fine by first clicking on a link on the page, such as UserCP.

Bob.

Thanks for reporting, this is because you are a moderator I think and my new code didn't consider that.

Can any other Elite Members confirm that everything worked correctly?

Will fix.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

@bobwest please try again and let me know, and I hope some other Elite Members can also confirm it was working as intended.

That link works fine for me taking me to the correct thread as shown below.
Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

Tried a couple of other random links and they worked okay too.

Hi Mike,

This looks like an issue with the query that fills the list box on the main page, next to the chat box, that shows recent posts. I looked at the posts marked, by ZZZTrader, and when I went into them, it looked like duplicate threads were created, since the posts are identical, and appear to be just duplicates.

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



But it turns out the two apparently different posts have the same url: https://futures.io/ninjatrader/48077-cumulative-delta-ninjatrader-8-a.html#post736751

Also, the query for posts in last 24 hours ("Today's Posts") under "Quick Links" only shows one post:

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



So the apparent duplication seems to be from something in the SQL query for that list box. Or perhaps a database issue that only affects that query (?).

Just FYI.

Bob.

Hi Bob,

The "duplication" is a known cosmetic issue with the chatbox notifications, it happens when a thread is moved. In this case, the OP created it in the wrong section and I moved it -- and that triggered a second notification of a new thread in the chatbox. Hasn't been a high priority for me to fix.

WRT the Today's Posts query, it is working fine for me. I'm not sure I am understanding why you highlighted the particular thread you did in your screenshot example, please explain it to me a different way

The query will show all threads that have had posts made to it within the last day.

Mike

Thanks for the explanation. It just looked odd, without knowing the cause.

I only highlighted the entry in "Today's Posts" because it showed only one entry for the post I mentioned, unlike the chatbox notification, which showed two. The highlighted thread is the same "Cumulative Delta for Ninja 8" by ZZZTrader that showed up twice in the chatbox list. I was assuming that the Today's Post inquiry was the correct one, and I included it just to point out the difference.

Sorry to not be clear.

Bob.

Hi guys,

Later today (Monday), our newsletter emails will begin featuring an automatic secure login feature.

This means when you click on links within the email, you'll be logged in securely and automatically, even on secondary devices like your phone, tablet, etc.

This has the added effect of ensuring you have easy access to all content you're authorized for (Elite} and won't receive confusing error messages as an Elite Member, just because you aren't logged in.

In addition, you'll more easily be able to respond/reply to threads, as you are already logged in. I often see 30-40% of clicks coming from "guest" (not logged in) members -- which this new secure login system addresses.

The auto login feature is good for 3 days (72 hours) after the link is created. After that, when it expires, the link itself will still work -- you just won't be automatically logged in.

If you are already logged in, you won't notice any change of behavior. If you aren't logged in, you'll see a message stating you are being logged in.

This is a rather sophisticated piece of code. I've tested it, but the first big test will be the next newsletter. Please report any issues.

This will significantly enhance the ease-of-use of our site. I'm excited to implement it.

Mike

Feature request


Hey @Big Mike,

I notice that when we click on an image to enlarge it, it is contained within the browser window even if we click to pop it out. In addition to this, the screen dims.

I checked in the user control panel area but didn't see a way to change this behaviour. The only reason I mention it is because there are certain situations where it would be helpful to either have the attachment open in a separate window or be movable outside of the existing browser window, such as while reading @Pa Dax's excellent journal where he describes his trades bar by bar while looking at the chart posted:

An example

For the same reason, it would help to not have the main browser window dim while viewing the attachment instead of having to go back and forth, closing the attachment, reading more and then reopening it.

Hope this makes sense... it's not a deal breaker, but thought I would mention it.

Thanks
Shane
