And The Winner Is...
Never Loads Winners (10 posts)

    When I click to reveal the winner for a contest, it just loads infinitely, showing the "Please Wait" text.

    I am running 3.0.3. I also noticed I had to manually close comments because of this same issue. I have deactivated all of my other plugins (to determine if it was a conflict) but it hasn't changed anything.

    The blog in question is http://reviewsbycole.com (if that helps)

    Any ideas are appreciated

    Can you let me know what browser and OS you're running. I'm working on some other things with this plugin, so I'll try to get this in the next release as well.

    I'm having this exact same problem and running the exact same system. I tried it in IE as well to see if that was the issue.

    It just runs and runs now without picking a winner!!

    Yup works totally fine on Vista, but got a new laptop for Xmas and it's got Windows 7 and no go! I had to go back to the old laptop today to use the plug-in to pick winners. Hope it's resolved soon, thanks for looking into it!

    I was unable to reproduce this on a Windows 7 Ultimate machine with IE 8.0.7600 or Firefox 3.6.13. Could you possibly get me some more info? Exact browser versions and steps to repeat could be helpful. Thanks.

    FF 3.6.13.

    I simply signed into my dashboard, clicked the link in the sidebar to view the contests and clicked the button to generate the winner for the only contest I have up (after manually closing comments). It changed to the loading animation but nothing ever occurred.

    ETA: For whatever reason, I am not able to load or reject winners but not confirm them. I have recently upgraded to WP 3.0.4 but I suspect this may have something to do with Kaspersky because I was working when I had it initially disabled

    ok, did some research on Kaspersky and apparently it can block some AJAX requests, but there is a way to add URLs as trusted within Kaspersky (somehow, I don't have details, as it's not a product I use). So, try adding your site as a trusted URL and see if that works).

    In the meantime, I need to add some enhanced error checking to my AJAX requests.

    I've gone ahead and added it but it doesn't seem to be working yet. I still need to completely disable Kaspersky and sometimes that doesn't even do it (but that's not your issue). Ack
