Nice to see T2W mentioned in the an article on the TradingLife website of the best Trading Forums in 2019. They've got a 3 part series, ordered by oldest to newest forums. In case you're wondering we came in second, established in 2001, only beaten by our friends over at Elite Trader, established four years earlier. Time flies...

I've fixed some issues with the search functionality and added some weighting on new posts, overall it should mean you get a better experience, it should at least be as good as the old site, and in actual fact a lot better.

Also if you click the little down arrow on the left, under the username/title, you'll now see a member's country flag, this only applies to members who have visited the site since yesterday, so over time it will get more and more populated. This also shows on the members list and a member's profile page.

One final fix, before if you clicked a username of the poster, which shows the mini-profile, clicking on the number of messages they've posted would result in a broken search page, it now lists all the posts of that member.

Suggested threads are now listed at the bottom of every threads, based on similarity of content. We had this on the old site, so regular members should already be familiar with it.

As you've probably noticed old urls pointing to threads and forums on the old T2W website, have been redirecting fine to the new site. However there were some remaining issues with urls to the old site, not redirecting properly to the new.

With today's update, I'm pleased to say that as far as I can tell, ALL links including all attachment links, as well as very old thread links (probably pre-2010) are working \o/

As an example here are some links that wouldn't work before today:

http://www.trade2win.com/boards/showthread.php?t=211928
http://www.trade2win.com/boards/attachment.php?attachmentid=252328
https://www.trade2win.com/boards/at...sic-ideas-strategies-cable-sells-17th-may.jpg
http://www.trade2win.com/boards/showpost.php?p=120010&postcount=22
http://www.trade2win.com/boards/trading-journals/140032-my-journal-3-post2490560.html

If you spot any remaining issue do let me know, otherwise I'll be keeping an eye on our log files in case there's anything I've missed.

< You probably spotted, "Messages" and "Likes" counts added to the sidebar in thread views. I think this makes it a little bit easier for new members to gauge a posters seniority on the site.
