  • Native push notifications on supported devices/browsers
  • Editor button management
  • Enhanced editor integration and advanced BB code option syntax
  • Markdown support
  • Tables
  • Reactions
  • URL unfurling
  • Emoji enhancements including an improved smilie menu with easy emoji access
  • Video uploads
  • Approval queue improvements
  • Guest performance improvements including guest page caching
  • Content bookmarking and sharing
  • A fully featured REST API
  • One click XenForo upgrades and easier add-on installation
  • BB code and rich text editing for profile posts and comments

I'm planning on adding a new tools section to the site as a way to help me learn Python (you've been following my journal, right?!). Think trading calculators, that sort of thing. I'm wondering what to start with (simple?) and whether there are any online (or offline) tools/calculators that people use regularly (or infrequently) that would be good to include?

How about a Compound Interest/Amortization calculator?

Yes, that sort of thing.
Wonder if you could do a sort of ticker-tape running at bottom of page showing "NFP due in next hour" or some-such.
Helps to plan the day, or remind of red-news days, etc.
That's actually a really good idea as well, as you say it would need to be integrated in the main site, so some sort of forum plug-in. I'll give it some thought.

I've updated user titles (the one under your username in your post eg. Active member) to better reflect your activity on the site (before it was simply, Junior, (Regular) and Senior Member). It's based on post count and includes the following levels:
  • Newbie
  • Junior member
  • Member
  • Active member
  • Well-known member
  • Established member
  • Experienced member
  • Senior member
  • Veteran member
  • Legendary member
I'm not at liberty to reveal the numbers, but I can say there are 39 members who have achieved Legendary status.

I've cleaned up the New to Trading forum, when we moved to the new forum software, the permission changed and members were able to post new threads there when they shouldn't have. So I've restricted the forum again and now all the FAQs are in plain sight. I'll be doing more cleaning up across the forums, and particularly the sticky threads in the coming weeks.
