Recently started looking at various signal providers here on MQL5 site.

Noticed that one cannot search within the platform, by name, for a signal. This seems ridiculous.

So am wondering, is there a way, on this site when logged in and looking at a signal, to "favorite" it so when in the platform, it will show up in your favorites?

Or, alternatively, does someone have a method for finding the signal by name in the platform?

You can use search on the top right corner of any page of the forum for example.

-------------------

As to finding the signal (any signal) by name in the Metatrader so you can use Metatrader's search feature as well, for example:

MT4 - 


MT5 - 


-------------------

Besides, I just collected some information (from MetaQuotes) which may help in some situation for example:

And according to the signals in signal tab...  so they (signals in Metatrader) are sorted accodring to the rating, and they are placed to your tab based on the compatibility with your broker/s account.

Concerning to the signals in signal tab?
Signals in Metatrader are sorted according to the following criteria:

  • rating, and
  • the compatibility with your broker's account.

The signal's showcase in MQL5.com website shows only real account signals, even if you use the search by name, author, broker function (in filter), it will give you only real account results.

If you search by name in the general search of MQL5.com website (on the top right corner) you will find demo signals too, but these are not present in the general signal's showcase. 

If you try the signal's tab in the terminal window of your metaquotes platform, you will only get real account signals if you've got a real trading account and only demo signals if you are trading with a demo account

Yes, as Sergey pointed out above, you can search by name in MT platform, in the upper right corner, where the magnifying glass is:

I find the search function can't work properly recently. Signals cannot be found.

Yes, correct, the MT4/5 search is down again, I will notify MQL5 technicians about it.
