On 7/27, I added a Forum post for my "S&P 500 NN Trader" strategy (not the public forums). The heading starts, "Sell Rules Modified on 7/27/2013...". When I click on the link on my strategy page, there is a pause, then the Wealth-Lab home page is displayed. I can navigate to the post via the "All Forum Posts" button.

The link that fails starts- "http://www.wealth-lab.com/SystemForum/Posts/Sell-Rules-Modified-on-7-27-2013..." I think the "/SystemForum/" syllable should be "/Forum/" (to match other nearby links)

Looks like a bug?

Hi Len, I'm not detecting a problem here and even replied in that thread.

Len,

This is an issue of a very minor importance caused by using slashes in post title. Other threads are not affected. To avoid it, just don't use slashes in titles.

When you access that post from within the strategy's Latest Forum Post block, slashes in post title aren't handled properly:

http://www.wealth-lab.com/WealthSignals/SystemForum/Posts/Sell%20Rules%20Modified%20on%207/27/2013%20-%20Sell%20CTSH-33450

But when you do it by first entering "All Forum Posts", slashes get converted to dashes:

http://www.wealth-lab.com/WealthSignals/SystemForum/Posts/Sell-Rules-Modified-on-7-27-2013-Sell-CTSH-33450

Thanks Eugene. I've edited that title, so it should be fine now.

I am not able to access any strategy forums (at least the 2 or 3 I have tried to enter). I get a message saying that I need to create or edit a web.config file in the root of a remote something-or-other.

Would you help me to click on a strategy forum button and go to the forum?

Thanks you.

Unlike the WealthSignals strategies forums (which work), the links to uploaded Strategies' forums have been broken since the inception. Sorry for the inconvenience. You can find existing forum threads dedicated to uploaded strategies by searching the regular forum. Every popular strategy usually has a thread (or threads).
