Hi Guys!!!

I think the treatment that JForum gives to the facility of put the cursor in the right place could be improved.

For example:

The login page: it's intuitive that when the user goes to this page, his intention is, first of all, to fill the user box, so he can press TAB and automatically goes to user and, finally, pressing ENTER, enter to the forum (without use the mouse if he doesn't want). But, to put the cursor at the username box, the user has to do it with the mouse. Suggestion: go to http://mail.yahoo.com.br and see by yourselves where is the cursor: ID Yahoo!:[l <-- ] <br /> <br /> This behaviour is a characteristic of JForum: it happens with all the screens --> the cursor has to be firstly positioned by the mouse (or pressing TAB lots of times, like a guessing)

It's a simple feature, maybe if you think it's better I can register it at JIRA, but before would appreciate some comments, anyway...

Agreed.

There are a lot of pages to fix that.

Hi Rafael!

So, lets fix it!

Maybe I could help on this fixes.

I was taking a look on the following pages and checking them html/javascript source codes:

https://secure.del.icio.us/login:



http://login.yahoo.com/config/mail?.intl=br&.lg=br:



http://www.google.com.br/:



Well... I'm not a JavaScript's expert, but it appears be easy to implement on JForum!

Consider the following logic to templates/default/forum_login.htm:



In the forum_login.htm case, I think it should appears with something like it:



So, finally I ask to JForum's experts: on templates/default/forum_login.htm, for example, how should we insert this code, considering that its template hasn't any <body>...</body> HTML tag!?!

It's wonderfull when you can find the answer by yourself, isn't it? ;)

Well... by now, I just know how to download CVS code, but anyway, it will be attached to this message a ZIP file with all the HTML codes with the "intelligent cursor" already done!

If somebody (probably Rafael) agree, upload it to CVS ok?

\templates\default\forum_login.htm

\templates\default\lost_password.htm


\templates\default\post_form.htm


\templates\default\recover_password.htm


\templates\default\pm_finduser.htm


\templates\default\forum_list.htm
(PS: because the cursor is in the end of page, when it's loaded
it pages down!!! So, in the attached file this file won't be there!!!)

Well speaking of smart caret, I would like to add somthing.

In post writing, how about when the caret/highlight on a word that when you bold/italic/underline is pressed that it change it in the text rather than at it at the end. basicly up the word processing a little bit.

It was posted a fix in the forum. We should be testing it.
