Today I installed an upgrade to the text editor, which improves the user interface, fixes a number of bugs, and improves operability with mobile devices.

If you find that the context menu in the editor is not working (if you right-click on something in the editor and you don't see a popup menu), then a piece of the old text editor code is "stuck" in your browser.  Simply clear your browser cache, refresh the page, and it should work fine.

NOTE:  You should NOT clear your cookies -- only clear the cache.  If you clear cookies, then you will be logged off.

Another fix that went into place today was support for the new Apple News app on iOS devices (iPhone and iPad).  Lottery Post news is now included in the Apple News app, so if you use that new app (included in iOS 9.0), Lottery Post news stories will show up when searching for lottery news.

        Hey, that's cool. I did have to clear my browser cache to make it work. I tested it first just as you suggested by right-clicking on a word in the editor. Then I cleared the cache and tested it again. Viola! Hello popup menu. I'm running the Chrome browser under WinPro7. 

        Thanks for the heads-up!

          Tried The Firefox Suggestion But Couldn't Find Anything

          Googled And Found This

          Clear the cache in Firefox

          1. Click the menu button New Fx Menu and choose Tools/Options.

          2. Select the Advanced panel.
          3. Click on the Network tab.
          4. In the Cached Web Content section, click Clear Now. clear cache incontent
          5. Close the about:preferences page. Any changes you've made will automatically be saved.

                Now is their anyway we can simplify posting pics?

                Premium members get to upload images directly to the Lottery Post server and they get a cool Image Manager to organize their image storage space.

                But free members?  It is rather simple to include an image in your post, but I'm not paying for the storage space for your images.  So any image you're hosting someplace (there are lots of free image services out there) can be easily included in a post, but you have to host it yourself.

                So if you help support this site financially, I will pay for your image storage, and provide access to a great point-and-click Image Manager to organize your images.  And the Image Manager is accessible from the editor toolbar, providing a simple way to include an image you uploaded into your post with one click.

                  Thank u Todd for all you do for us. I would not be where I am if it wasn't for you. I upgraded my pc to windows 10 & it is so  awesome. I also updated my browser Fire Fox & Chrome to it's latest. It is so easy to keep my pc updated & clean. Don't need to install any software to clean anything. Only need to install top rated antivirus software.  It's a great habit to clean your browsers history at the end of the day before you put it to sleep. Always keep your updates on automatic & reboot your pc when needed.

                  You are the man! Thank u so much!
