Be the first download Keys and explore New Subscribers Area

Postby Jeff Tirey » Tue Feb 03, 2004 8:46 pm

I normally announce this first in the newsletter, but I have JUST rebuilt the "Subsribers Only" area from the ground up and some debugging might be in order.

Be the first to download both North and Hillard's Latin Prose Composition Key and Sidgwick's Greek Prose Composition Key. Sidgwick's Greek Prose Composition is coming shortly.

Like I said, the subscribers only area is brand new. I'm not sure where to place the link to it just yet, but for now you can access it throught the newsletter page, sitemap, or on the homepage on the right in the "subscribe" info area.

or by clicking here: http://www.textkit.com/subscribers/

It no longer uses the newsletter's cookie authentication system - which was buggy. I went instead with sessions values which should work better. Where therr might be a snag is with the download prompt. It's the same script, buy with a few minor modifications.

So go ahead and download and please give me any feedback and/or report bugs. In a day or so I'll get a newsletter out.

thanks!

It works, but if you try to hit the enter key instead of the button after entering your mail address, it doesn't give you a clear indication of what you did wrong.

Wow, that was really fast. I'm actually going to use this book in class so I probably shouldn't look at the answer key :oops:

I tried it even without hitting tab, just hitting enter from the email box--it worked fine (in Mozilla, though maybe IE reacts differently to that).

I didn't hit tab first; I just typed in the email address and then hit the enter key. And I did use IE, which from past experience I believe does work differently than Netscape/Mozilla.

Instead of this:

Code: Select all
onKeyDown="if(event.keyCode==13) event.keyCode=9;"


could you do this?:

Code: Select all
onKeyDown="if(event.keyCode==13) event.keyCode=9;event.keyCode=13;"


It would be even friendlier; more like how Mozilla handles it.

I'll look at that. I see what you're saying. Get the form to not only advance to the submit button on enter but also submit. That's nice. I'll have to play with this a bit and make sure it works in all the browsers. I don't mess with the event properties too much so I don't know them all that well.
