I hope everyone's having a good weekend!

I installed a site update today, with the following improvements (also noted in the Change Log):

  • Improved Search page with upgraded styles and formatting, much faster performance, and better accuracy of results
  • Better search keyword highlighting after clicking from Search page to forum topic (uses same highlighting pattern as Google)
  • Improved past lottery results pages (example) with much faster response time when paging between results, both because of the use of AJAX technology and with simpler click-based paging mechanism
  • Improved IE6 upgrade page, replacing IE7 instructions with IE8 instructions and making the wording clearer
  • Upgraded many graphics to png-based files (rather than gif-based) for improved appearance
  • Fixed minor HTML coding error on Daily Number Games page
  • Upgraded all content, troubleshooting, and graphic images for Lottery Results Gadget (especially the Help Guide) to include Windows 7 information
  • Improved performance of several client-side scripts in gradual migration to jQuery-based scripting
  • Fixed bug that prevented some books from displaying in the LP book store
  • Many performance and appearance tweaks/improvements throughout the site.

            My favorite is the auto tab to next field in search! Thank You.

            Hurray!

                Thank you Todd for the updates, I really like the fact that I do not have to use the Tab key when I input the #s into the Search Past Results Feature.

                  I'm glad you like it!  That was one of those little handy features I have been meaning to do for a while.

                     Todd, I also noticed the auto tab in the search results. Much easier now.  Thanks
