A quick follow-up on some additional bug fixes just posted.  In addition to the fixed bug posted previously this evening, I have just finished uploading another set of fixes.  (It is common after a big release like last night to find a few straggling bugs when the code is put into production.)

  • The login page no longer warns about non-secure content
  • Certain pages contained an extra HTML element that was not visible to users but could throw a browser warning message
  • Locked topic threads once again state "locked" (this was missing for the past 24 hours)
  • All pages are now capable of displaying a warning message if JavaScript is disabled

Also, just wanted to say "THANKS!" to those who have posted nice comments today.  They are much-appreciated! Smile

    ...very much appreciated Todd - Thanks.

    Our 2nd class in Pick 3 Lore was Space-Timing The Next Draw and we found the Lottery LoreKeeper, Tatiana, staring through her telescope, while we covertly giggled about what does Planet X have to do with what my next draw is? The sleuthy sage quietly intoned, "It is known that when the light(information) from such a distant object reaches our eyes, we are seeing the object as it was in the past & not as it appears Now in the present. Isn't this true for all things, especially numbers, that were drawn years, months, weeks or even just a day in the past? To accurately find the next draw, use the Law of Now(Tatiana's Pillar)". We never giggled again.

      Wanted to post one more follow-up on this thread.

      I have hopefully fixed the bug that many IUE users were seeing — the page would occasionally throw a severe JavaScript error in IE and then show a blank page, forcing you to click Back, then Refresh.  Hopefully it has been eliminated.

      A few other fixes were implemented:

      • Fixed the state lottery results pages, which would show blank jackpots in IE6
      • Added Share/Bookmark button to news stories, allowing instant sharing of news stories to practically every major social network site
      • Fixed some png-style images in IE6 to include the correct transparent background
      • Miscellaneous minor improvements in efficiency/performance.

          Seems as though your updates are working well Todd, It has also cleared up what I had pm'd you about earlier with other issues. Thanks for all the dedication and time.....!

            @charmed7:  Thank you very much for the word-of-mouth!  Since Lottery Post does not have an advertisement budget to speak of, that kind of "advertising" is so important and appreciated.

            @MADDOG10:  Awesome, I'm glad to hear it helped.  Sorry about the length of time where it was a little rough.  I am trying to balance a number of technologies in each page, and it can be a very hairy thing to get it "just right".
