T2W Website Updates (New Features/Bug Fixes/Server Problems)

Hi everyone,

I've decided to start this thread to make announcements regarding any new features we add, and bug fixes we make - so that you know exactly whats happening behind the scenes.

At least this way you're always in the loop as to what we're busy filling our days with.

To start the thread, I should add that in the past few days we made the following updates:@
  1. Added a new rotating store section to the front page displaying featured products. This rotates with with the reviews section.
  2. Registration for the store is now required and separate from the forum registration. On the plus side - you can easily see your order history, update your personal details and more easily make repeat purchases.
  3. The front page calendar section now shows details of the last two economic events and the next three (also indicates day, as well as time).
  4. The calendar is using an upgraded feed with results announcements immediately.
  5. Formatting of all calendar pages now correct, and events link through from front page correctly.
  6. Quick search for T2W Article and Reviews added and working.

Will Top Poster be down to number of posts because if it is then are we not encouraging the posting of a lot of rubbish just to be honoured with the title ?

.....Quality arther than Quantity in posting should be promoted........Otherwise it will become ritual posting just for the sake of it.....and getting a bean along the way....

True.

And if you think about it, the title of top poster means little anyway, as a consequence of this type of behaviour. I think we can all recognise that this stat is fairly meaningless.

Sharky started this thread Fair point re. top poster, could be mis-construed. I'll rename it 'highest poster' if we choose to keep it. Although these stats are fairly pointless anyway, as they top 5 in most categories is unlikely to change from day to day - it's useful the first time you see it, but adds little to check them again.

Zambuck, thanks for the heads up on the printer problem - I'll get that fixed.

Sharky started this thread Various bug-fixes...

* Searching of the forums works correctly now. (Search titles didn't used to work).
* The section you're in ie. forums, traderpedia, articles etc is now highlighted in the menu bar at the top - just to help confirm whereabouts you are in the site.
* The dropdown menus are now positioned correctly in the forum menu - they used to popup way out to the right.

And a nice new features..

* You can now search for exact phrases, by putting the phrase in quotation marks eg. "forex trade" would only match that phrase and not "trade in the forex markets", but without using quotations it would match it.

What about fixing the rep system so that we can continue to collect light green dots, beyond the current limit of 6?
Cheers.
