If you can give me the operating system version and browser version you were trying on your old PC I can do some tests to see if it's supported.

 Thanks Todd,

   My computer uses Windows XP and Internet Explorer 8

Any info is helpful.

Thanks again,

Lindalu

      Well, I just completely a major upgrade of Lottery Post, and I'm just pleased as punch that everything installed correctly and there were no major problems in bringing the site back up.  According to my statistics, the site was only down for 3 minutes.  Whew!

      If you're typing a new reply or message, you'll notice right away that the editor is much different.  I posted a very detailed explanation about the new text editor on the forums last week, and you can find it here

      In addition to the new text editor, there is a ton of new stuff that I packed in this update.  Here goes:

      • For all the people writing to me and posting about the absence of their favorite lottery results display on the Internet, I have added a new lottery results calendar display.  Currently it can be used for Pick 3, Pick 4, and Quinto games.  Click on the game name wherever you see a game popup menu, and select Lottery Results Calendar from the menu.  Or, go to your state's main results page (from the Results menu at the top), and you'll see new Calendar options next to the numbers games.  It should work much like you're used to.  Like all results pages at Lottery Post, free members can see up to one year of past results, and premium members can see everything.
      • For those looking for the All/Mostly In or Out Filters, they have been added to the Inspector 3, Inspector 4, and Positional Wheels pages.  (The filter was previously only on the Deflate system.)
      • There is a new very addictive online game available, called 2048.  Smartphone and tablet users may have played this game before -- it's one of the most popular games around right now.  So now you can play it in your web browser!  Here it is.
      • There is also a new Games page that holds all the online games available (just 2048 and Sudoku right now).
      • There is a new Image Manager for premium members to upload and manage their images.  You'll find a whole lot more functionality compared to the old version.
      • The Prize Payouts pages now show the odds of winning various prize levels for many games.  I'll continue adding odds for games over time -- just a lot of work to track down and calculate, but I'll keep at it until they're done.  (It might take a bit of time!)  Also, for prizes that have a non-monetary value (like a free ticket), the prize page will show the description of the prize (again, like "Free ticket") instead of $0.  Like the odds calculations, it will take some time to track down and update all the prizes, but eventually they'll all display correctly.
      • Forum pages in which you can go the previous or next page are now programmed with the latest browser technology in order to speed up the time it takes to go the the next or previous page.  Browsers that support this technology include the latest Chrome browser, IE11, and I think the latest Firefox browser.  The way it works is when you're looking at a forum page -- maybe you're on page 11 of a thread -- if there is a page 10 (which would be the previous page) or a page 12 (which would be the next page), the browser will "secretly" loads both of those pages in the background, so if you go back or forward one page, it will come up almost instantly.  So the next time you go to the next or previous page in the forums, take note of how quickly it goes (assuming you're using IE11, Chrome, or Firefox).
      • There's a ton of little things that have been updated too.  You might notice little things here and there.
      • Finally, as I mentioned in my other post from last week, this was an extremely important update for the technology platform that Lottery Post runs on.  I am truly relieved that the update was uneventful, as it could have gone a lot more bumpy.  It's a great thing for the long-term viability of the site when I can do a major technology upgrade like this.

      Well done! Thank you.

            Todd,

            I like the upgrades. But since I'm not an upgraded member, the full calendar can't be seen. Ads cover half of the calendars on my smartphone. I did not have that problem on the other site. Plus, now we have to pay on here for the data we got for free on the other site. Glad I printed out all of our calendars for Pick 3 and Pick 4 before they vanished. But it would ne nice to do everything on one site. Thanks for all you do.

              I guess you should become a premium member then.  Members who support the site get to see everything.  Those who don't see the past 1 year of results.  I think that's fair.

              Comparing what LP does to another site is pretty ridiculous, considering the other site doesn't show anything but an error message right now.  LP has been going strong for 15 years.  I think the other site should be worried about a comparison, not LP.

              I agree there is a formatting problem with phones right now.  Hopefully that will get fixed soon.  The page is brand new so there will certainly be bugs, but I try to fix them as they are reported to me.

                I have been a paying member before, but I still had to go to the other site to complete my reasearch. One thing I use frequently is the search winning number feature. Hopefully, you will add that soon. Maybe I will join again.

                    Thanks jimjwright, exactly right.  I think some people have not fully explored all the various options available to them.

                      THANK YOU Chief  !Now we have an EXCEPTIONAL Loterry website .

                      note-i do have BIG  problem typing(the typing cursor moves to left starting position always and i can't type .it types backwards ??) -i am on Mac /safari .

                       I typed this in another window and pasted it here.

                      I'm typing this on a Mac with Safari right now.  It's working perfectly.

                      I would suggest that you need to clear your browser cache to be sure you are getting all the new code.

                      TO ANYONE EXPERIENCING PROBLEMS:  This is and always has been the very first thing to try if you experience problems.  There is a detailed article in the Help forum that gives this advice and shows how to do it.
