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

How often are you guys using the "List Attachments" feature within threads?

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


I am trying to determine the priority of re-creating this on the new framework.

Mike

I use it from time to time..specially on older threads. I like this feature, please keep something like this on version 5.x

Sometimes.. But I use it more on sites like ForexFactory where the indicators are uploaded to the thread in posts and sometimes the thread is long. Here, the indi's have their own section, so I use it less.

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.
6)

Yes I know. But it's still better here than FF. There is no section for indi's at FF.

I have never used it... Might have made some search easier if I realized it was there!

I had semi-forgotten it existed. I have used it only a couple of times.

One reason is that I didn't even realize that you can uncheck the "Include Images" box. That meant that, on threads like the free indicator thread, I didn't think I could use it to find an indicator without wading through all the chart images -- or so I thought up to this minute.

If the interface had been more clear, I probably would have used it a lot....

So, my vote kind of doesn't count, except to say that I would use it now.

Maybe if there were a full search box just for the individual threads, which could include file types (.zip, .cs etc.), or just include an attachment option, it would work better.

Bob.

I think for now we'll keep the functionality similar in the new framework on the "thread summary".

As for being able to search attachments, like this:

https://futures.io/search/attachments/

That needs to be overhauled. But I haven't even assigned it as a project yet to the developer because the entire search needs to be overhauled. And IPS is overhauling some of it themselves, 4.1 already is a massive improvement over 4.0. So there is some risk in being "too soon" because whatever work I do may break in a future update before we even go live, or be replaced or integrated into the default product.

There will be a very lengthy discussion on search soon.

Rarely used, but in threads that contain programs in development not listed in FIO's (oops almost said BMT) files download section, it is a great tool. For example this thread contains many versions of journals hard to find without the "List Attachments" tool.
https://futures.io/psychology-money-management/4884-trading-metrics-journals-record-keeping.html#post53915

I think it should be wrapped into the "advanced search tool" with option boxes like: search current thread + attachments only + *.*

Have you used search on the beta site? It's completely different. What you describe won't be there, it's all completely different.

I have used it when searching for indicators / strategies files. Its a extremely useful. However, for average thread with just pictures, I have only used it a handful of times since I have started posting here.
