Nice new look Todd. The only thing is that now I can't paste the content I copy.  Now I have to copy and paste the content into my notepad first. I do this because in the past, sometimes I lost the content from some glitch when I post it, so as a precaution, I copy every post before clicking on the "post reply" button.

    Some people may only budget $15- $20 per month towards playing the lottery so the $7.95 platinum membership would eat up half their budget. I wouldn't call people on a strict budget a bum but someone who may have other priorities that they need to address.

    I can guarantee you with 100%accuracy that someone who is that good to budget their money down to a few dollars /Month is already a platinum member and good at pick3/4.Most who don' t JOIN DO NOT KNOW HOW TO USE THE SEARCH RESULTS AND THE TOOLS provided here ,and/or are not good with budgeting money also .You are good at math ,you will b good at p3/4.So in absence of the member benefits they set on freeloading from whatever systems are posted and info available in topics.

      Hi Onlymoney,

        I believe I can help with this as at first I couldn't paste either. There are a couple of different ways I have found how the pasting feature now works.

      1st Method, Old School :Highlight the area you wish to copy, then you can either right click on your mouse and click on "copy" or you can Press the ctrl key and C key at the same time to copy. Then point your mouse on the page where you wish to paste, and then press the ctrl key and V key at the same time to Paste

      2nd Method, Highlight the area you wish to copy. Under the word edit in the toolbar you will see a pair of scissors. The icon immediately to the right of the scissors is the icon to "Copy" click on it. Then point your mouse in the area you would like to paste. The icon immediately to the right of the copy icon or 2 over from the scissors is the paste icon. Click on it and that will paste your copied info in the desired area.

      I hope this is helpful,

      Lindalu

          I guess you're not familiar with the fact that the editor has an autosave feature, which allows you to get back the previous contents of the editor by clicking the red and white "life ring" icon on the toolbar.  Even if your browser crashed before posting you could still get the content back.  There should never be a reason to need to copy the contents before posting just to be sure it is not lost.

          Also, to be clear, copy is done by pressing Ctrl+C on your keyboard.  Paste is Ctrl+V.  Cut is Ctrl+X.  These are basic Windows keyboard controls that work everywhere in Windows, not just Lottery Post.

            Thank you, Mr Todd.

            I was having trouble with that my ownself.

            My lips go numb just thinking about it.

              I have adjusted the editor toolbar again this afternoon, to address a few problems people were having:

              • The menu bar has been eliminated to save space on the screen
              • The buttons are now spread to 3 rows to help people with lower-resolution screens
              • The emoticons now display in a popup panel in order to improve performance and help people who couldn't access emoticons in IE8
              • The spell check can now be turned off by clicking the spelling toggle button on the toolbar

                  I don't know why but I seem to get bounced out when I go from one post to another

                  At first I thought I was kicked out lol

                  Anyone else have this happen or is it just on my end

                   

                  ps I'm afraid to try new game because I'm sure I won't get anything else done and I spend more time on here then I should

                  Great site Todd!

                    Hi, Todd. I'm having a slight issue with the message bar on the reply section not showing up right. I have to hover over the buttons to see what they actually are. I'm using Firefox.

                      I think that sounds like a general problem you're having.  Sometimes when we talk about new stuff being installed on LP, people think that unrelated problems they might have are caused by the "new stuff".  Most problems are caused by bad plugins or toolbars installed in your browser, clicking or pressing something, etc.  There certainly could be bugs with any new installed, but nothing like bouncing you out of a page.

                          That's what I thought, but it doesn't work. It works fine in IE but nothing seems to make the buttons appear when I use firefox. I'll keep messing around with some stuff to see if I can fix it tho.

                            I'm typing this in Firefox right now.  Works just like all the other browsers.  So be sure you don't have something that is blocking anything from downloading, like a plugin or blocker.
