Implemented Discussion Thread Integration

    As per title, add in discussion thread integration into Stock Trader. This is a PAID customization in which the client has graciously donated back to the community for inclusion in Stock Trader.

    How this works. There is a new option that allows you to set a discussion forum in which threads will be created for each unique stock. This happens during the PURCHASE process. After the purchase transaction goes through, the system will check to see if there is a discussion forum set. If one is set, it then checks to see if there is a thread for the stock symbol in the lookup table. If there is NOT a thread, a new one will be created. If there is an existing thread, then a new post will be made to the thread with the purchase transaction details.

    A couple notes on this. Both Purchase and Sell transactions to the discussion thread CAN be disabled. This is important to those that have competitions and don't want the transactions being posted (kept private).

    The Discussion thread title is a PHRASE (upon creation). This allows you to customize how you want to standardize the Discussion thread titles. NOTE: Changing the phrase will not effect thread titles that have already been created. You will need to edit those manually.

    The Thread Header area contains the most current (LIVE) stock data (in the same formatting and look as it does on Stock Trader pages). You can also Purchase new shares directly from the discussion thread.

    When doing a Stock Look up within Stock Trader, if there is an associated thread, there will be a button that say's "Discuss this stock, replies: 4, Latest: 16 minutes ago" (so its very easy to go from Stock Trader into a discussion about the symbol.

    More on this later (to include images)...

    couple screen shots..

    New Stock Trader Options... Setting a Forum "enables" the auto create thread system. You can also disable one or both of the transaction types (Purchase and Sell) from auto posting in the threads.

    When you do "lookups" within stock trader, if there is a discussion thread, a new button will appear. If there are any posts, it will tell you how many as well as when the last one was made.


    This is what a discussion thread looks like when associated with a Stock Symbol. It has all the same Live (at the time of rendering) data that it does when doing lookups within stock trader itself. You can also make stock purchase directly from the discussion thread.
