Things like login can be tricky to make changes to, so I've need to make some adjustments here and there.  I think I'm finally happy with it.

Sorry if you need to login again, but that's the price for a little extra security!

At this point things work more like everyone is used to.  Your name will get filled in automatically next time you login, as long as Remember Me is checked.  Also, there is now a separate box for having a login survive a browser restart.

One of the big changes, as I mentioned, is extra security.  The logoff link actually works much better now.  When you logoff it not only deletes the cookie on your computer, but it also generates a new login key on the server, so even if someone had captured a copy of your login cookie, once you logoff it will no longer be valid.

    oh that's what it was??? I was wondering why I went to some pages and had to log in again and then when I went to another page it would say I had to be a member to access that. It would show that I was a guest.

    I love doubles and remember, it's just a game!!!!!!

      I couldn't figure it out either. I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me because the first time I logged in I only saw one box, then I got logged off and when I went back I saw two..now I get it. I like it though. Bigger fonts and stuff. Looks nice.

         Todd,   I'm reasonably intelligent, not to mention the fact that I work online 24/7 so a computer is virtually never out of my sight.  That said, I wouldn't know a cookie if it slapped me in the face.

         

                  However,  I really appreciate what you do here.  I spend more time logged in than not logged in and my work requires all kinds of safeguards and some places I can't even go on the web.  Never any problems with LP all these years.  Thank you.

          Nice job Todd, not only is the security factor a plus but also the convenience factor.

           Thanks again...!

                Maybe I'm missing something here, but I keep getting toggled to "guest" between pages.  I cannot post predictions and I've tried everything.

                EDIT:  Just left this page by hitting "home" button and I was a guest again.

                    I've cleared cache, temporary files, restarted computer.  The only place that I remain as a registered user is on the forum...any other page toggles me to "guest".

                      Rick, I've been posting almost non-stop for the last two days about people sending me the new reports if someone is having problems.  I am starting to get frazzled saying it so many times, in so many ways, which is why I used the shortened "send report" comment in my last reply to you.  I guess I was hoping that you would just send me the report.

                        Oh man, today has been nuts.  Creating login code is tough.  Anyway, I added an option in the Resources menu called, "Delete cookies set by Lottery Post".  If you're having login difficulties, click that option, then clear your cache, and you should be fine.

                        You DON'T need to restart your PC.  You don't even need to restart your browser.  Just do those two things above, and you should be OK.
