This is something I should have done months ago. The purpose of this thread is just to track the changes that I make to the site over time. Some may find it interesting, but its mainly for me.

So, unfortunately most the heavy lifting has been done already so this changelog will be starting out with a nice refined product. We'll call it futures.io (formerly BMT) 2.0 But one day, soon I hope, futures.io (formerly BMT) 3.0 will be around, so I'd like to start somewhere.

Enabled tags.

Tags allow you to enter up to 25 keywords describing the contents of a thread. Anyone can add tags to any thread, even a thread that is not yours. Be responsible with this You'll find it at the bottom of the thread "Edit tags" section. Also when a new thread is created, there is a field for tags.

Examples of tags: renko, money management, interactive brokers, divergence.

As you can see in my examples, keywords can be a single word or multiple words. Each tag is separated by a comma.

Tagging threads make it easier to find stuff later. Go to Search on the navbar, click Tags, and you can see the Tag Cloud and also search tags.

Created "VIP Journals" subforum under The Elite Circle. There are more and more journals being created in the VIP section, and I wanted them to be separated so they were easier to find.

I understand why some users post journals in the VIP section as opposed to the main journal section. I am fine with it, and in fact wanted to encourage it. Anything I can do to get a user to start a journal is something I should do, because I know it will greatly benefit them.

Added "Post Templates". This feature will be available to VIP members only.

Post Templates will allow you to create custom templates for any type of post that you find yourself frequently repeating. You can also categorize the templates.

Example, you can create a very nicely formatted and detailed Journal Entry template. Then each day when you go to update your journal, with one click of the button the entire template is loaded for you.

You can also create templates for frequently asked questions. For instance if someone keeps asking you where to download the indicators in your thread, you could make a template that is very detailed and very nicely laid out. Click, save, done. The next 10 times someone asks the same question, you can quickly post the nicely formatted answer in the click of a button.

VIP users (and above) will find this feature in the User Control Panel. On the bottom left, there is a new option "Manage Post Templates". It's pretty self explanatory from there. To insert a template into a post, you'll find a new section on the top of the navbar inside the post editor (next to the font selection, colors, attachments, etc).

Enhanced the Tags feature considerably.

Now, each post is automatically scanned for hundreds of keywords (which I just spent hours working on). It also auto-groups keywords, so for instance "fib", "fibo", and "fibonacci" will all just correlate to one single tag -- "fibonacci". This really makes the tagging much more useful.

In addition, you can now control Tag Search Results in a much more granular way. Some examples:

Tag search:
+predictive -fibonacci
This would search for the tag "predictive" and exclude results that also contain "fibonacci".

Tag search:
+stochastics +volume +5m_chart
This would search for the tag "stochastics" and "volume" and "5m_chart" all together in the same thread.

Changed the name of the subforum "Beginners and Introductions" to "Beginners, Introductions and Tutorials".

I did this because I plan to start posting some tutorials to this section in order to help members of the site use the site to its potential. Some ideas for tutorials so far are

- How to create a journal
- How to create a video journal
- How to search
- How to upload attachments in posts
- How to upload files to file sharing section
- How to use social features of the site

Each of the tutorials will be video based.

Finally did something I wanted to do six months ago, changed the default for Who's Online so it sorts by last activity (instead of alphabetically) and also defaults to 200 users a page instead of 20.

Many of you over the months have asked for a way to PayPal Donate on an automatic monthly subscription basis.

I've got this enabled now, you'll find the options in the normal Donate menu. I tried to make them as simple as possible, but the layout of the donation system is not perfect.

Thanks as always to those of you who donate to support the site.

Added Quick Summary feature.

For every new thread in most forums, a Quick Summary post (post #2) will automatically be created.

The purpose of the Quick Summary thread is to allow any member (not just the original poster, but ANY member) to Edit the Quick Summary post (post #2) and add FAQ's, links, and other relevant information.

This way, the most useful information can be maintained at the top of the thread, and the entire community can help make sure it stays relevant!

Obviously, there is a trust factor here. Don't do anything malicious in the edits Moderators can see the entire edit history, and revert to any prior revision.



I'm really looking forward to this feature guys. I hired a custom programmer to do it for us, so I hope you will embrace it and utilize it to make futures.io (formerly BMT) that much better and unique

It will only be added to new threads, there is no way to add it to existing threads.

Mike
(p.s. speaking of unique, the original idea was from fatwallet)

Renamed "VIP Member" to "Elite Member".

This is just something I've been meaning to do for a while. All the Elite Members have probably already read my sticky post where I describe the story behind "The Elite Circle" and what it means to me. For those who haven't donated and can't read the story, I'll just say that I want to keep "The Elite Circle" alive and prospering.

I've added a new subforum under The Elite Circle named "Elite Group Trading Methods". This was inspired by a discussion I had with cunparis.



I've described the purpose of the forum here. I look forward to your participation to make this a popular new subforum!

I just put the new Skin for the site up. I spent the majority of today working on it, so I'm several days ahead of schedule with it.

I'm still getting used to the colors even though I've been using it as my primary futures.io (formerly BMT) skin for a week now. I think that's normal. I spent 8 hours a day 7 days a week with the old colors, it takes some time to adjust.

Overall, I'm very pleased with the new skin. It is far from perfect, but this has a much better base I can build on whereas the other one didn't.

There seems to be a bug with the Quick Summary feature. Some users are unable to Edit the post to add their own thoughts.

I'm working with the developer to fix it, it should be resolved in a day or so. If you see a thread where Post #2 is a Quick Summary, and yet you do not have an Edit button, please send me a PM and let me know so I can troubleshoot more.

Mike,

Sorry if I missed it on the new skin, but is there a way to go straight to the first new post in a thread from the last time we logged in? This feature was there in the last version and was really helpful.

Thanks.

Yes for sure, here are two examples on how to do it.

I preferred yellow indication whether there are some unread posts in the thread as in the new version I can hardly notice the difference between blue and grey:

Not 100% related to futures.io (formerly BMT) Forum, but I've started a sister site, bmcharts.com. The purpose of the site is like tinypic, quick and easy way to upload your images (with a focus on trading) and share them with others via email or on the forum, etc.

I'll be adding a bunch of stuff to it to make it unique in the coming weeks.

bmcharts.com - share your trades

I agree, I reverted that back. Check now.

Mike, can you also change the same icon in the top left of this post (on the left side of the date)?

Added some Calendar upgrades.

Users can now RSVP to calendar events, and limits can be placed on those events. This is primarily for the moderator team and our upcoming planned webinars/video webcasts with limited seating per event.

Done. You might need to do a Ctrl-F5 forced reload cache to see them.

Finally, the problems with Quick Summary have been solved.

Everyone should now have an Edit button on post #2 when/where a Quick Summary post is displayed, so that the entire community can help each other by posting the most recent/relevant information about the thread and keeping post #2 updated.

Added ability to search Downloads / File Sharing section on the primary navbar under Search button.



This is the same as clicking "Downloads" on navbar, then clicking "Search" on the downloads navbar, then clicking Advanced Search. Saves a few steps, and hopefully will help people, as most users don't realize the Downloads section is an add-on to vBulletin and the Search feature doesn't universally cover both the Forums (where you are reading this post) and the Downloads (where all the indicators are).

Hi Mike,
Could we place the unread posts link at the bottom of the forum next to the bookmarks or tags? I like to link back to that and I think we could scan new posts faster. So the same link at the top and the bottom.

Working on adding a new feature, the Question and Answer board. This feature has taken a lot of work and I've run into some bugs here and there, so I may be off/on for a few more days as I work out remaining bugs.

All the details and screen shots are here:

Changed the Top 10 stats on forum home to randomly display one of several categories of statistics.



You can click the drop down option and select another category if you want to view a different one.

I also changed it so it calculates stats only in the last 30 days. I found this more relevant that calculating based on all-time.

I've added .m (Matlab) as an acceptable file extension for file attachments on the forum. I've also created a Matlab category within the Downloads/File Sharing section.



Matlab is very popular in quantitative trading and high frequency trading, and is used extensively by many traders. I hope that the Matlab users of the site will contribute some scripts/functions to this section. I am relying on you to help!

Not exactly futures.io (formerly BMT) related, but on the sister site bmcharts.com I made some enhancements so you can now add tags to your uploaded charts (like "ES, 6 range, SMI" or "CL, 5 minute, butterfly pattern").

The tags are searchable, so you can go to Gallery then search for all charts with a match of "butterfly" or all charts with a match of "CL", etc etc.

New feature so give it some time, only applies to new images going forward obviously...

Tonight I re-arranged the Programmer's Paradise section a bit.

Because the site is growing rapidly we needed to get organized a bit more in this area. Initially the site was 100% NinjaTrader based. But recently we are attracting a growing number of TradeStation, MultiCharts, MetaTrader and other platform members.

With this in mind, it was necessary to re-arrange the Programming section so it would be easier to find things for your specific platform, and to encourage participation for non-NinjaTrader users.

If you are an EasyLanguage, MQL MT4/MT5, Matlab/R, Sierra Chart or other platform (non-Ninja) member, PLEASE HELP US OUT by participating in these new categories.





It should also be noted that the Programmer's Paradise section is designed for developers. Not so much for end users. Users who just want indicators but aren't programmers should stick to the "Downloads/File Sharing" section.

Thanks everyone!

Reworked some of the home page again today. I wasn't real pleased with the layout after adding the Q&A board.

I am happier with it now, it is more similar to the way it was originally...

Also you'll be happy to know you can collapse the Trader's Edge section if you want now.

Guys, tonight I made some performance tweaks to Apache (our web server). It's making better use of our 8GB of memory on the server now, and has reduced the load quite a bit, plus I feel that pages are now loading much faster.

You'll probably only be able to tell if you are on a very high speed connection already, but let me know your feedback if you can "feel" the difference

Good to hear max!

I'm going to wait a few days so I can see what Google reports in the webmaster's lab for the site speed, then I have some more changes I want to make and see if it improves things or not.

I reverted these changes, it was causing some odd behavior. I will look into it more later.

For now, we should be back to 100% stable.

Added quick links to the " Elite Access" navbar page for Elite members. I did this because it seems a lot of people were clicking the button looking for Elite content and when shown a "Here's how to donate" page they were confused, because they were already Elite.



I think this should solve that

Enabled the Similar Threads feature.

Now at the bottom of some threads, if the keyword search score is high enough, the forum will display what it believes to be similar threads.

For instance, on the Hurley Method thread I took this screen shot just now of what Similar Threads were displayed from the bottom of the page:



Not all threads will show a result box at the bottom with Similar Threads. This is because the score was not high enough for the forum to feel confident that other threads were similar.

This might be useful to you to find threads with similar topics. Just look at the very bottom of the page as you are viewing the thread.

I've changed the Top 20 stats on the homepage from a 30-day window to a 90-day window.

This means that now threads created within the last 90 days will become part of the statistics, instead of only threads created within the last 30 days.

The statistics are displayed/sorted by the number of replies or numbers of views per thread. Threads older than the 90-day cut off are not displayed. The general idea with this Top 20 list is to keep the material "fresh".

However, nothing is perfect, and it highlights "fresh" topics more than it highlights "old" topics. If I set the date to forever (no age cut off) then threads that are not being regularly updated, but used to be, are still shown. I felt that the 30-day window was a good compromise, but after feedback from a user I reconsidered and changed it to 90-days.

In a perfect world the user would be able to easily switch between 30 days, 90 days, and all time. Unfortunately, this module doesn't allow that so you'll have to live with what I select for the entire group

bmcharts.com - share your trades has moved to a new server. This is to be our new futures.io (formerly BMT) server after I do a bunch of testing. It should be about twice as fast as the current server.

bmcharts was just an easy way to get something on it so I can start testing, futures.io (formerly BMT) itself will be a ways off...

If you guys experience any problems with bmcharts let me know.

They're fine imo, I'm not concerned.

Speed will be "up and down" as I keep toying with the config, getting it ready for futures.io (formerly BMT). bmcharts is about 1/1000th the size of futures.io (formerly BMT) but I needed something to test with so why not...

Began the process of seperating out NT 6.5 and NT7 indicators/strategies/bar types, etc.



ZTrade101 will start doing the heavy lifting of re-sorting everything. Please help him out by posting your indicators, strategies, templates, and custom bar types in the appropriate section in the Downloads section (instead of in threads).

A couple of small changes tonight. You will need to hard refresh (Ctrl-F5) your browser to force a cache reload to see one of them.

a) changed red 'new' icon to a more blending grey color on the forum home stats block
b) changed small down arrow 'new' post icon to same grey icon above for all New Post searches and all thread listing pages

New feature added. News events and current headlines will be added automatically to the forum as topic discussions, appearing under Traders Hideout -> Current Events.

The purpose of this is to facilitate discussion on any hot news items. If you want to comment on a particular story, just reply to it.





New topics are automatically created a few times a day.

Spent a few hours, and some money in custom development (again), and re-worked the Questions and Answers feature on the home page.

It should not look (visually) any different to you. The changes were all behind the scenes. Now instead of javascript and jquery (slow), it is pure server generated html. This should speed up the loading of the home page considerably, this update was all about performance.

Please report any problems.

One day I will tackle the chatbox as well, which is the slowest part of the home page.

This problem is resolved. In order to resolve it, member profile page URL's have had to change slightly.

 
Code
Old:
https://futures.io/trading_member/big-mike.html (this is now invalid, won't work)

New:
https://futures.io/trading_member/1-big-mike.html
The different is the userid in front of the username. This had to be added. Everything will be automatic on the forum pages, but if you link to your profile page outside of futures.io (formerly BMT) from your blog, etc, you'll need to update that URL.

I've purchased and installed vB Optimise. It's a suite of stuff that caches bunch of forum content and makes everything faster. One big way it does this is by turning all dynamically generated Guest pages (non-registered members) into static pages, eliminating like 20-30 SQL queries per page. This is huge time saver!

So guests will be getting page content that is up to 5 minutes stale. But whoopty-do, they should register already. All the savings will help make the site load faster for everyone else.

After it runs for 24 hours I will follow-up with how much its cut out queries down on the database server.

Please report any problems.

Hi guys. I just wanted to let everyone know that since second week of May we moved to a new server, and we've experienced multiple problems.

The reason we moved in the first place was to upgrade capacity/speed. I knew the person running the cabinet at the data center that we switched to, but unfortunately knowing him was not enough. The data center had a lot of problems and that translated into problems for us.

For the past three weeks, I've looked for a replacement data center and finally found one. I am extremely confident in the new data centers capabilities. I have tested it from over 15 places around the world and found very high performance (bandwidth).

As for hardware, I went ahead and decided to upgrade it even more, so things should be even quicker with the new server.

An approximate ETA for the migration will be June 18th. I don't plan for any more than a couple of hours downtime.

I am just letting you guys know that we are aware of a few speed issues and are working to resolve them all this time.

I've had to disable the Pop-up Private Message system due to some conflicts.

All it means is that when you click on someone's name in a post, like mine to the left, and select "Send private message" -- it will no longer just pop-up with a box for you to type your message. Instead, it will redirect to the normal vBulletin page to send the message.

I will look to fix the problem later and try to re-enable it.

I do not see this as a disadvantage, as I usually say do not pop up. But that is a preference, and if no one complains your time could be spent elsewhere.

Tonight I've begun the process of adding a very nice Wiki to our site. We have some really, really big plans for this.

It will remain behind the scenes for some time to come. I am making this announcement only because of the way the Wiki integrates with the forum, I want you to report any parts of the forum that may have broken when we installed the wiki.

We will update everyone later with more details on the wiki as we have some examples to show off. Our wiki will welcome group participation.

Thanks,
Mike

Quick Summary is apparently broken still. OMG help. Am working with developer to resolve it.

Mike

Well, that was embarrassing.

Six months later the problem is finally solved. We also fired the old developer and hired a new one

So, now the problems some of you guys had with editing Quick Summary should be resolved. A few reminders:

1) Quick Summary is post #2 on every thread (any new threads this year at least).
2) Anyone can edit Quick Summary, you do not have to be the original author of the thread.
3) The point of Quick Summary is to allow the entire GROUP to help keep the thread organized.

An example. Let's say we have "Bob's Method" thread, and within this thread is 25 indicators all over the place, and 12 chart templates, and 5 pdf files, and 3 posts with a lot of detail on how to use Bob's Method. The thread in total is 100 pages long (over 1000 posts).

It can be very hard to find stuff in a big thread. Enter Quick Summary. With Quick Summary, Bob, or anyone else, can just press the Edit button on the Quick Summary post #2 in the thread, and then link to relevant info. Perhaps they create something like this:

--- Welcome to Bob's Method. This Quick Summary will get you up and running. For everything else, please read the entire thread before asking any questions. ---

Indicators:
name of indicator, version number, and link to the post or link to Downloads section where it is posted
IndicatorA
IndicatorB
IndicatorC (etc)

Templates:
ChartTemplateA
ChartTemplateB
WorkspaceA

Documents:
More Info on XYZ (link to pdf)

How to trade Bob's Method:
Post #123 (link)
Post #332 (link)
Post #511 (link)

-----

I hope that gives you guys a clear understanding of what I was trying to accomplish six months ago when I asked the original programmer to write this feature for us. I think it can be a very powerful tool.

Some of you have been following along about the server problems and moving to a new server. Well the first part of that is now, I have just moved bmcharts.com to the current server. It will take a few hours for DNS to propagate but once bmcharts.com loads for you again, please report any problems.

bmcodex repositories are changing over to the new server, you may get errors for the next few hours as they are moved and the new DNS and IP's take effect.

Hey guys,

The forum is now live on a new server in Chicago. A history lesson: For the first year, we were hosted in Dallas on a dedicated server. One month ago I wanted to upgrade the server and I moved to a new data center in Asheville. I had a friend at this data center and choose it solely because of that. It was a very bad experience, we've had downtime out of my control (data center problems) and poor bandwidth.

For the past 30 days, I've been searching for a replacement. I did an incredible amount of due diligence this time, because it is such an enormous headache to relocate a server.

Anyway, we are up live in our new home after about 2 hours of downtime this Friday night. Please report any problems.

For many months, we've been looking to add a wiki to our site. We've finally done that, and for the last several weeks I've been working on incorporating a wiki into futures.io (formerly BMT).

I'm not ready to talk about all the features or how to use it, etc. I just wanted to let you know that if you see some of your words in a post linked to a wiki article, like for example if I say the word backtesting right here, just ignore it for now. Only mods and above have access to view the wiki at the moment, so you'll get an error if you follow the link. Nothing to worry about, just give us more time before we make everything public.

Links to wiki articles now have a dashed underline border instead of solid underline, to differentiate them from normal links. Example: Gomi Volume Ladder.

Added a global search for all attachments on entire site.

This is a very powerful feature. First, let me explain that it does not include what is in the "Downloads" section as of this post (today). But, we are in the middle of changing the entire Downloads section. In a few more days, with the new downloads section, this global search will work not only in normal threads, but also in Download threads, so you can find attachments across the entire forum very easily.

This feature is only available to Elite members. You can access it by going to the navbar, and clicking Search -> Search Attachments.



You can search by keyword in a filename of the attachment, or make that keyword be in the post as well. You can also search by user name (restrict results to only a certain user). You can exclude file extensions, so if you want to exclude images and be left with only zip or cs files, you can exclude "jpg, png, bmp, gif" for instance. Last, you can also exclude certain forums, so you can hone-in on exactly which forum categories you want to look at.

The ability to attach files to Private Messages has been implemented. This has been one of the most sought after additions to the forum for a very long time. It is an extremely complex addition, so for the moment I have opened up beta testing to Moderators and Market Wizards only.

The feature will be for Elite Members only. I will open it up to all Elite Members as soon as I receive feedback that it is ready for prime time (soon, unless we hit problems). I'll make another post when that happens.

Ok, a bunch of people tested it and no one reported any problems, so I am going to go ahead and mark this one as good to go.



To use it, just send a Private Message like normal, then at the bottom click Manage Attachments to add your files.

Changed the orientation/layout of Traders Edge articles on the forum home page.

I like this style better (all articles are same size, same layout -- before it was one big article on left, two small articles on top of each other on the right).

Enhanced the Community Photo Albums!

Click Community -> Photo Albums from the navbar.



Now it shows all albums -- before it showed only recent ones. Now you can search to find entries in albums, too.

New feature tonight

User tagging is here! If you want to shout-out to a user/reference another user, it is now easy to do in a post. When typing your post, just put the @ symbol in front of the username. For instance @Big Mike (notice the space).

Now the next time that user logs on to the forum, they'll have a notification letting them know they were mentioned in a post!

It looks like this:


From your User Profile you can see which threads or posts you have been mentioned in. When someone tags you in a post, like @Gary, then Gary would get a notice and it shows up as a Mention.



Also you can disable these notifications in your User CP:





There is also a Top 10 Statistics of who has been mentioned the most. Community -> User Tagging Statistics.

Enjoy!

Mike

There are some body formatting issues (extra whitespace) in articles which I am waiting for the developer to issue a fix for, hopefully tomorrow.

Added breadcrumbs back to the bottom of threads. This went missing after the style change several months ago but I had forgot about it. Now you can easily navigate from the bottom of a thread instead of having to scroll back up to the top of the page.

I also disabled Quick Reply. I found about 2 out of 7000 people use it, and for everyone else it took up screen real estate and also confused newbies. It's gone.

Added another, faster, way of quickly summarizing attachments in a thread.



If there is more than one page in a thread, and the thread contains attachments, we will now show the total attachment count to the right of the page navigation section at the top of the thread. Clicking it opens the summary view.

Here is an excellent example of why the permalink should be added to this output screen.

I click on the thumbnail, but I have no idea which post it is associated with. Need One more line out put - the permalink.

It's already on the list of things to do, I sent change requests that would effect that to him probably two months ago, but bigger fish to fry right now and the change you are wanting requires a major rewrite, it is not as simple as it should be. This makes it costly, and so therefore is low priority right now in line with other things I am working towards. It will be done eventually.
