Have only just spotted this thread went un-noticed. I don't have any recent experience of this, but have found these tips on Netmums that might be useful.
Hopefully some of the mums and dads will see it and reply with more anecdotal tips.

"I love standing on a crowded platform in a tube station and feeling like I'm insignificant in all of this. All these people and lives I have no idea about. Gives me a sense of better perspective."

Don't rush. 18 months old is young to be toilet training. We're just starting with sod baby but not really expecting much more than introducing her to the idea of a potty now.Can you hold me like you held someone you shouldn't have let go?
Can you keep me deep inside like the regrets that burned a hole?
Can you love me like you loved someone you loved so long ago?

is she showing an interest in the potty or showing any awareness or telling you if she needs to do a wee/poo, or even that shes been?

It's an old, old book, but one I swear by.
"Toilet Training in Less than a Day" was perfect for potty-training my daughter. (I've included a link below if you decide you're interested.)
It starts with advice on how to recognize whether your child's ready to be potty-trained, and then goes on to describe a method that was developed for helping developmentally disabled children. You'd need a doll, salty snacks, and lots of tasty drinks that your child likes, and you teach your child to teach the doll to go potty.
It worked extremely well with my daughter. I spent about half an hour of time devoted strictly to teaching her, and then escorted her to the potty many times throughout the day, praised her a bunch for going, and then gave her treats to reward her (and make her go more.) She had two accidents in the weeks and months that followed.

But the topic said toilet training which confused me. lol this is a good idea though for potty training but then your daughter wont stop wanting treats that's the one disadvantage about it. How would you stop her from wanting treats once she's trained? I'd like to know this.
