OK, had a few days to work with this latest version and I must say WOW!!! What a huge improvement! On my system now every update I do when working with TT happens much much faster and I have never had an update not complete like the problem I was experiencing before.
I have only had TT give one error code since the update, where before every time I tried to close it I would get an error code, as well as fairly often when doing data updates.
I will be submitting the below bug by e-mail, but wanted to post it here also in case anyone else runs into it and can provide more data for the team to help troubleshoot this bug.
Everything seems to be working very well but I have encountered a bug when using the PPC Analysis section. There is a problem with regards to displaying the PPC ads found. I see this bug when ads are shown in the "Top sites for Keywords" tab as well as the "Websites Keyword List".
I started by deleting all of my old projects in case there was some bad data left from the prior version. I then started fresh by adding keywords and then running my projects.
The bug has to do with the display of ads when there is more than one ad for a particular website or keyword. When you look through the ads, if there is more than one ad available for viewing, every other ad is correct and matches the domain you are viewing, but every other ad is NOT correct, it is usually related, but is not of the domain being viewed. The bug seems to be related to any response that has "Google Checkout" Image/text as part of the displayed ad. The ads with "Google Checkout" are the ones that are listed in the wrong place.
This may also help with troubleshooting. What I am seeing is that the ads that are listed in the wrong place, all start with "Google Checkout" as the first words listed in the ad title line. The rest of the actual title for that ad then runs out of room to display and just goes off the side of the Traffic Travis display window.
I hope this is helpful and if anyone else is noticing this same problem with ad display, please e-mail support. I hope they can get this bug squashed then I can really start enjoying TT.
Thanks again for the great update!
