I am surprised that no one mentioned one of the really cool new features that I programmed into the new site.

Now, when you print any page on Lottery Post, using the normal "print" feature of your browser, only the body of the page prints!  The left navigation is removed, as are all of the advertisements.

I purposely didn't mention this feature, to see when someone would notice.

Oh well, now you all know.  Back to work.

    lol...that is because I usually just the select and print the selection for the replies I want Todd....

    Now if I could just print the one reply I want that would awesome...sometimes the posts have 50 replies and if I don't select and print selection it would print all 50 replies.

        I've clicked on it and the format looks great. However i copy and paste whatever i want to print or save to an email and then print it out. many times i just copy and paste what i need from the post and not all of the messages on the page.

           How did I know that pointing out a new feature would generate new feature requests?

            Sandy you can already do that.  Highlight just the reply that you want to print, and then choose the Print option from the file menu (don't click the Print button on the toolbar).  When the Print dialog box comes up, change the Print Range to selection.  That'll do it.  Plus it will print using the new clean format.

              Check my reply to Sandy.  You certainly don't need to copy to e-mail.

                  Todd,

                    That is a nice feature. I have copied a lot of pages for the post. I just copied your reply to Sandy and it works great!

                  Thank you.

                    Fantastic!  A lot of people aren't aware of the Selection-based printing capability in IE, and have probably been doing extra steps in order to just print one part of a page.

                      Well I vote for Sandy K's suggestion. I am so used to "cut and paste" into Wordpad as far as posts go, that I never tried anything else. I cut and paste because I really don't want to kill a tree by having the whole topic full of posts print out. Usually, there is one or two that I want but not the whole topic.

                      But its nice to know now that I can print out the drawing results without getting anything else. Tried it and it works good !

                      Good show !

                        I haven't printed anything out or would have said something.  Love that feature and thank you very much for programming it in!! 

                        Good luck to everyone!

                            Todd the very first thing i learned how to do when i got my first pc with a printer was copy and paste. i use this tool for almost everything i do i copy and paste what i want to.......then drop it in an email or save to an email and decide later if i want to print or trash it . My way of doing this has nothing whatsoever with me not using your new feature it's just something i like to do and has become a habit, as i move quickly from post to post and web site to web site i don't print out everything i like, i save it to an email. Even when i go to map quest or any other site with a printable version i copy what i want paste it in an email and edit out the junk and print it.


                            I looked at your printable version of this site and it's cool with me. Thanks for having this tool because i know many people whom if you said copy and paste wouldn't have the foggiest idea of what or how to do it.
