    A no ‘secret letter’ preview test.

    >First preview worked fine, presents new ‘secret letter’. Now to edit my test and preview again. –unfortunate that the preview page does not retain the name and email fields.

    >Second preview with edits worked fine (other then the annoyance of having to continually re-enter my name and email).

    This time it’s Post, so I’ll enter the ‘secret letter’

    If this shows up then I’d say the system worked.

    OS & Browser:
    GNU/linux Konqueror

    One more check:

    > Using ‘preview': This time I checked the ‘remember my personal info’ box… maybe that will keep the name and email fields filled in.

    No it didn’t, but I got a nice cookie so we’ll see how it does later on another visit.

    oh-oh, Bad news, I got a offer to open the cgi script with my default word processor when I hit the post button. This is a continuous condition.

    I’m going to close this browser session, come back and see if I can post (bet it’s a cache and new cookie problem).

    – – – – – – – – -
    OK I’m back, it did indeed remember me when I arrived.

    >Preview first (no ‘secret letter’).

    OK Preview worked (still looses the name and email fields though).

    If you see this the post worked this time.

    Direct post, no preview. (name and email were filled in when the refreshed page with the last post appeared).

    I’m sure there can be a problem for at least some browsers with checking the ‘remember my personal info’ box for the first time. It’s not that unusual behavior –an auto refresh when the box is checked might be added to the code… make that cookie work for a living!

    So that’s all the tests I can think of.

    Hello and thank you for taking the time to let us introduce you to our new
    Eli’s Paper® Product line.

    Creative Stationary Industries has given you the opportunity of purchase one of the newest, most innovative products created today? Enclosed with this introduction is a link http//:www.elispaper.com of our new Eli’s Paper® product. This new revolutionary product will make the stapler obsolete. Imagine this, have you ever had a report that was too thick for your average stapler and your next step was a larger industrial size stapler that required a larger piece of equipment? Have you been a college student working on a last minute term paper? Do you have children that have projects to turn in for school? What about this, you’re a home office consultant looking for new ways to package and present a quote or summary. You’re an attorney or legal secretary needing to bind contracts or other legal paperwork. Or have you been a trainer, salesperson, or presenter with a new ideal but no binding equipment available to package your papers or presentations?

    With the new Eli’s Paper® products you can do all of the above and more. Our revolutionary products allow you to stack your papers nicely, pull a thin strip and viola your papers are bound together with more ease than you ever thought imaginable.

    With our new system you don’t have to worry about getting new equipment. Our paper products can be used with the present printing, copy or fax equipment. Think of all the projects you can complete with this new line of stationary: reports, contracts, term papers, presentation hand outs, books or manuals…the list goes on.

    Got a lot of papers that you need to bind?
    Use Eli’s Paper® and have some peace of mind.

    Our system is so easy it can be used with one hand tied behind your back!

    Once you’ve seen the enclosed samples we know you will be ready to order our new products. We can hear you say it now, “Oh wow, I could use this!” “I’ve been looking for this product for a long time.”

    Look at the samples and give us a call – we’ll be waiting for you. http://www.elispaper.com
