Lost Last 3 Days of StocksCafe Forum - 25 Nov 2018

I am very sorry but as the title indicates, the last 3 days of data on StocksCafe Forum (forum.stocks.cafe) are lost.

The main reason is mostly due to my ignorance. I was trying to update the open source ...

Introducing StocksCafe Forum - 24 Sep 2018

I am happy to share that I have created a forum for StocksCafe. This forum will replace the Cafe feature in StocksCafe where users would post questions and start discussions. Why replace the Cafe feature? As the number of features in StocksCafe continue to grow, I am having a hard time maintaining all of them.

Previously, everything about StocksCafe is basically packed into one server. As ...

I am happy to share that I have now set it up such that you can get a copy automatically ...


Shares Quantity Now Supports Decimal Values! - 10 Aug 2018

Firstly, I would like to apologize to users who were affected by this "migration" last night and seeing errors on many StocksCafe pages. I was making a seemingly simple change, but is actually more complicated. I was making a database change for the field "shares quantity" from only accepting whole numbers (i.e. integers) to allow decimal values (i.e. floats). As integers and floats are considered ...
