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

I'm not sure exactly what you do and don't want us to look at but obvious things to me where
  • Profile doesn't have location
  • No Avatar Pictures
  • You can't update your Avatar - get the error "member_profile_disabled"
  • When you try and like a post I get the error "An Error Occured. You have reached your quota of positive votes for the day"
  • Images in posts show up as links rather than images now.

For profile location, I think the info is there but I just need to remap the fields. I'll check on that.

For avatars/error message, see if the error is gone. Existing avatars were supposed to be converted, I have an open ticket with IPB on that and will try to resolve it before the next conversion pass. I think I resolved the error message you were getting.

For the post error message, that's an odd message. I am not finding where that is coming from. I've made a couple changes according to what I found on Google, see if you can post now.

The image issue is already listed in the known bugs.

Received some solutions from IPB. Going to redo the conversion again today, so the beta site will be offline as I work through that. Will take a couple days. Once re-converted I'll provide updates for further testing.

This second conversion should finish overnight. It is supposed to solve the missing avatar issue, as well as the permissions/usergroup problems.

I have to reset all the main permissions on forums tomorrow, they don't get converted. Here is the list of known issues before this second conversion:

Known issues to be resolved

Show stopping Critical
1. Image proxy/SSL/caching, breaks most IMG tags
2. Elite Members user group membership not converted (0 members)
3. User permissions (due to groups?) are showing conflicting info (see ratfink)

High
1. Screencast bbcode
2. Elite subscription transaction history
3. Downloads file sharing library
4. User thread counts are incorrect (madLyfe)

Medium
1. Custom user titles
2. Private Message attachments
3. User avatars mostly not working
4. Mention user tagging bbcode
5. Thanks given/received data missing
6. User signatures missing

Low
1. IP blocks
2. Q&A board
3. Admin user profile notes fields
4. Vendor tagging
5. IP history migration
6. tip bbcode
7. Length of URL link text in posts
8. User profile time zone settings wrong, or was it just mine?
9. Chat module

Hoping that critical #2, #3 will be fixed, as well as high #4 and medium #3, and low #8. If we can get that far, I would like to proceed to the IPB 4 test to see what new problems are encountered while I start working with custom developers to resolve some of the other issues which will not be covered by the standard IPB conversion script.

Also want to make it clear the beta is an out-of-the-box default style with zero customization. A new futures.io (formerly BMT) theme/style will be created from scratch by a design team later in the process. The beta right now is about function not style.

How many of you will kill me if there is no Arcade in futures.io (formerly BMT) v5.0? Show of hands by way of 'thanks' to this post if you will be very upset that feature is gone.

Mike

Never knew about an Arcade and cant find it either..........................lol

Any chance we get to choose our own background colour? (eg a 'skin' type arrangement)

The current blue does my old eyes in late at night, it's the main reason I sometimes have time away from the joint (apart from all the other life ones of course, I'm not that sad, honest..)

Travel Well

I can't promise it, but I can say that since the skin is being redesigned to use the new framework, it should be easier to accomplish to have a light/dark theme variation.

I'm not opposed to it, it will just depend on how much extra work (cost) there is involved to develop it. But I am hopeful it will be possible and we can do it.
