James, I love this site and appreciate all the effort you put into it. You may want to look at the search feature - it functions quite poorly and forces users to manually investigate forums.

I use the search quite often, and I found it served my purpose ok.

I would like to learn your search methods... maybe I can shorten my search time?

 

 

 

[edited]

p.s. If you need to search a word with 3 characters of less, you have to add the * key to the end of the word.

Wow Tams do you ever sleep?

 

no, I am a bot.

 

:-)

 

 

Thanks for your tip. I tried it searching for $ADD, but no joy.

 

 

with a $ in front?

sorry...even Google can't help you.

Tams, here's an example: $ADD (Advancing Issues - Declining Issues) TL search generates zero results but check out the title of this thread.

 

http://www.traderslaboratory.com/forums/f92/tradestation-has-just-added-96-new-3774.html

 

Hence my frustration.

 

 

I see what you mean

 

I think it is the symbol... the search engine is not sensitive to the symbol.

I found the same problem with Google... there must be a way to search $ as well.

Just a little suggestion - but it would make quite a big difference at least for the way I use TL:

 

In the "New Posts" view (and the others where threads are shown) if you want to see the latest post you'd have to click on this very tiny little right arrow (in the column "Last Post"), whereas to the left of it there is a big link with the name of the person posting.

 

Maybe I am getting a little old but it would be certainly nice to have this arrow at least twice the size as to make it much easier to click it (It normally is much less interesting to see information about the person posting).

 

Some extreme solution might be to even make the whole cell (not only the arrow) a link to the last post.

If the user really wanted more information on the last person posting he might click then from the posting.

Even without the $ symbol a search for "ADD" turns up nothing. This is just one example. I frequently run into search difficulties. Ergo, my original post.

 

 

read post#3 again.

you might have missed my edit.

Google site search would be ideal but due to the number of pages we have this is a very expensive solution and something we would not consider. The next vbulletin 4.0 system is supposed to have improved its search engine but I doubt we would migrate to 4.0 right away as this requires a recoding of the entire site.

 

Ill see what other solutions we can implement. Thanks.

For a temporary solution, I have added Google next to Advanced in the search engine (top right corner). Google custom search will basically search from the currently indexed pages so Im afraid it does not update real-time but should be more efficient compared to the current forum search engine.

I've never seen anyone run a forum even close to as well as you run this one James. You should be proud.

 

We just have a nice crowd of traders that tend to be respectful for one another. Of course creating the initial atmosphere is important but members on TL have done a great job preserving this culture. :)

Chatroom seems to be having problems today?

 

Hi Bil,

 

Thanks for the notice. We ran a database update hence the current issue. I expected this to be finished hours ago but will check in with the developers to see what the issue is. Thanks.

The forum is very good. The search is fine for me.

 

But if one wanted to search for ADD one alternative is to google

ADD site:traderslaboratory.com

I often use google for a different view of trading sites.

 

One interesting element of TL is that we've attracted a lot of guru types. People like Spider who has found that he can quietly run a thread on Hershyism and only gets hassled for a bit or Urma who keeps starting new threads. The nice thing is that Spider stays in his thread and doesn't feel an advertisers need to keep starting new threads to promote himself.

 

I think gurus who are relatively unobtrusive are a good thing. Noisy ones, except the likes of db who shares well, is open, and doesn't act like a clever dick (legitimate phrase from yesterdays crossword) are a bit more irritating.

 

Note to BF: despite your everlasting fascination with things best left at the front of the church I don't classify yours as guru behaviour (no secret, self-aggrandizing knowledge).

TIA

Thanks Tams, I think I have fixed this issue. I should probably get rid of the php and html tags as we wont use them here.

    • Apparently, the murdering psychopussy military industrial complex is suffering from 'Middle East Fatigue'. Oh dear, the poor little lambs must be bored of killing 500k innocent people and displacing 10 million others all based on a pack of never ending lies. Obviously, you won't need the host to give you a blow by blow account of how you're being treated like a 5 year old..

      MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 20th April 2018.



      FX News Today

      European Outlook: SNB’s Jordan sees no need for change in policy. The Swiss central bank President told Bloomberg last night that “there is no need to do anything regarding monetary policy at this morning”. Speaking after the CHF broke through the 1.20 per euro mark for the first time since the SNB gave up that ceiling, Jordan said the franc’s drop goes in the “right direction” but added that the currency is still considered a haven and the situation “fragile” and prone to change. So the SNB “remains very prudent” and “convinced that the current monetary policy is still necessary”. Further confirmation that the SNB is firmly on hold while watching also the ECB’s move very closely. If and when the ECB finally starts to reign in its support it will also increase the room for the SNB to manoeuvre. Bloomberg polls predict the first rate hike from the SNB in the last quarter of 2019.

      US Updates: Revealed a Philly Fed rise to 23.2 in April and a 1k initial claims downtick to a slightly-elevated 232k in the BLS survey week of April. The ISM-adjusted Philly Fed beat estimates with only a small April drop to 59.7 from a 45-year high of 61.8 in March, thus outperforming Monday’s Empire State where we saw an April drop to 15.8 from 22.5 with an ISM-adjusted decline to 56.2 from 57.3. For claims, the trend remains tight despite modestly higher readings over the last three weeks, as the moving Easter holiday and school breaks often distort April claims. We still expect a 210k April nonfarm payroll rise. The weekly Bloomberg consumer comfort index hit a third consecutive new cycle-high in mid-April of 58.1, and leading indicators rose 0.3% in March to leave a 22-month stretch without a decline, and a rise in the 6-month annualized reading to a lofty 8.8%

      Charts of the Day



      Main Macro Events Today
        CAD Retail sales – Expectations are for an improvement of 0.5% in February after the 0.3% gain in January. The ex-autos sales aggregate is expected at +0.3% after the 0.9% gain in January. The CPI’s gasoline price index edged 0.7% lower in February after jumping 3.2% in January following a 3.3% drop in December. % m/m inline with expectations CAD CPI – Expect March CPI, due Friday, to expand 0.4% (m/m) after the 0.6% surge in February. The annual growth rate is projected at 2.5% in March, up from the 2.2% y/y pace seen in February that was the fasted rate of CPI growth since the 2.4% pace in October of 2014. The BoC took the recent CPI climb in stride, viewing it as in line with their outlook. The temporary factors that had been restraining inflation, the Bank explained, “have largely dissipated, as expected.” The close to 2% core inflation rates are consistent with an “economy operating with little slack.” Inflation in 2018 is expected to be modestly higher than they expected in January, but due to the transitory impact of higher gas prices and recent minimum wage increases.
