Strange things happening??  Up there on the "Having Website problems topic"  I posted to it last week...and tried again this morning too.

 Although my name shows as the last post on the topic....the post itself isn't there. ...or at least I can't go past page 11 anyway. I always try to go back and check for errors on my post....but can't acess it this time.  

      This is one of the post below.......

 The other was about not being able to pull up Past results Menu for GA. Midday.    

 ?? When I write a post here and mash send it won't show up at the bottom of the page 11 which we are now on. I can't find it? So I go back to Forums.. and see it thinks I have just made a recent post but I then try to punch into the page 11 and it's not there?

 Hey .......look over there!    ....A different subject!  LOL LOL

 

 

The only real failure .....is the failure to try.                               

                              Luck is a very rare thing....... Odds not so much. 

                              Odds never change .....but probability does.

      Can anyone else see Win d as the last post on the "Web site problems" ?  If you do see it... can you then go to the post itself and see the last post there .....it should be mine posted about 7am. this morning.

       Maybe it's my keyboard...or my hands were still asleep. LOL

          It is my understanding that the permanent Question Post above was the appropriate communication for such Problems and questions. This was actually set up by the Website administrator himself and thereby reserving PM's for private messages.... not Website questions that affect everyone.

           Not to mention.... I was simply asking just any other member if they could see the last post I made on page 11 .....because I could not.

            Raven...could you see the post I made on Page 11 above? My name was listed as the last entry...but the post was not visible to me.

           Thanks for your attempt to help and respond Raven!.

            Since your venue of Problem Communication does not seem to be working, a PM is appropriate.

              Drop down menu is fine for the GA. Eve but when you click on GA. Midday......nada.... nothing drops down. No past results

                I could NOT see your Post on Page 11!

                Since your venue of Problem Communication does not seem to be working, a PM is appropriate.

                 Thank you Raven! ......but neither your post or mine is visible to me on page 11. I see your name as the last post now...not mine...but neither one is on page 11.  

                 Also....Unbeknown to you Raven (not your concern).....I am currently unable to use my PM box for back and forth communication. 

                 Thanks again for your help.  I know how to fix this.

                 

                 A far as the other  .....  It is not important. Obviously a religious problem. LOL

                  Win D and Raven, I see all your messages just fine, so I'm not sure why you can't.  There is not any feature I am aware of, including private messaging, that is not functioning properly.

                  If something as major as private messaging were not working I would be getting many angry complaints, and I would fix it pretty quickly, don't you think?

                  I have mentioned it many times in the past, but it is worth repeating: I strongly recommend that if anyone is unable to use anything on Lottery Post, or something is acting strangely, they should go to the Help forum and check out all the topics there, especially the FAQ topic.

                  Win D, the Contact Us is working just fine also, if you were attempting to reach me.

                    That topic you are referring to is not setup as a place to deposit problems, even though it has been used as such by some.  Problems are always handled through PM.

                    Here is the entire message I posted on that topic, and you'll notice that it was posted as an informational message about what to do if something wasn't working right (because I was making a lot of changes at the time).

                    I'm not posting this to cause any kind of confrontation, I just want to set the record straight here, since there have been several things said.  Here is the full text:

                    I am in the process of slowly re-coding several parts of Lottery Post.  Right now I am working on the editor itself.

                    As a result, it is possible that one day you open a page and see some kind of strange error.

                    The most likely cause of that error is that your PC is still using part of the OLD page, and mixing it with some of the NEW code.

                    What you need to do is to clear your browser cache.

                    To clear your browser cache:

                    1. In Internet Explorer, select the Internet Options item in the Tools menu.  Then, click the Delete Files button, and then click OK.
                    2. In Firefox, select the Options item in the Tools menu.  Then, Click the Privacy icon at the top of the box, then select the Cache tab (may already be selected), then click the Clear Cache Now button.

                    After your browser cache is cleared, try refreshing the page, and hopefully the error will not occur.

                    By the way, if you notice the toolbar at the bottom of the editor (instead of the top), that means you're using the NEW editor.

                      Just to put your mind to rest, if I go to page 11 right now (1:13pm), I can see 4 posts from you and 1 from Raven.

                        Just a general note:  page numbers themselves are unimportant, because that depends on how many posts per page your account is configured for. I only see 6 pages in that thread, for example, because I set my Board Settings for 20 posts per page.

                          Good point, Todd.  I generally post that I use default posts per page and I forgot to do so this time.
