Chat has become the URL target

Post by jemcfarlandIII » Tue Jul 19, 2016 3:57 pm

Whether at the bottom of the index page or the top of it - my URL - http://uhf.jemiii.org - now targets the chat box Or at least the very top of it.

I need it to go back to targeting the top of the page as usual ... I don't see anyone else complaining so I must have an unusual sitution ...

TIA for any help you can give me ....

must be something that sets focus to a text input. if you haven't done any manual editing of board files with setting the focus, i would need you to zip up your entire extension folder with all your extensions in it and i will see if i can find the issue. also, depending on how modified your style is, i might need that as well. but i will do what i can to find the issue for you. if you have paid/private extensions installed, you can send them to me in a PM

I'm not sure you really want to do that - did you happen to look at the URL - over a 100 extensions installed.
No editing has been done post Ajax Chat install - plenty before - including direct modification of style files, etc...
The focus actually seems to be on the Chat as a whole - it always sets the screen to show the very top of the chat - just the title shows.
This is the same whether at top of page or bottom. If would not be noticeable if I was setup like you, but I have other extensions that use
the upper real estate also which makes chat show up a little further down .... I removed one and it is closer to the top at this point.

I will keep an eye on things and do more research. I was hoping it was you having set the chat to get focus once displayed .... maybe
because it gets focus when called?

Thank you for your time .... I will let you know ONCE it is resolved. ;-)

chat has no focus setting. your site is the first time that this issue has happened. something is setting the focus to the textinput and also adding 2 spaces. i have no idea what is causing that

BTW... your avatar is one of the coolest i've seen in years :D

Avatar - thanks :D

I know exactly what you are talking about - it started happening in my normal text boxes - around the time of the last Quick Reply extension upgrade.
I tried to narrow it down back then - but had no luck. I also added/upgraded another extension or 2 around the same time period.
I wasn't thinking about that causing my prob with chat but makes perfect sense now .....

Thank-you

LOL - Google is always our best friend - I tried

PHPBB3 extension text box getting focus and adding two spaces

Instantly came up with a post about someone else with same prob and they knew what extension they had installed - same as me at the time -TinyPic
Disabled and prob solved!

Thanks for your time and the great extension! :D
