Scrolling problems with long posts in IE

Ever since we upgraded from version 2 to 3, posting and editing long posts has become a nightmare.

When a post reaches a certain length, if you take your cursor out of the text input box, the post jumps right back up to the beginning, as if it's spring loaded. The only foolproof way to get the cursor back down to the end is to press the down arrow as if our lives depend upon it. This only happens in Internet Explorer.

Has anybody else experienced this? It's not usually the users who suffer, just the admins when we do our weekly roundups, and we can get round it by using FireFox, so it' not the end of the world, but it's incredibly annoying...

I have experienced this as well.
Anyone have any ideas how to fix this?

It's still happening to me, too. I don't even bother trying with IE now, I just go straight to Firefox.

It's a major pain though :evil:

it even happens on this site

as soon as a post is long, it becomes a nightmare to edit it

you can no longer even see what you're writing because the unwanted scrolling takes the visible message higher than where your cursor is

I started seeing this at 3.0.5 but maybe it was there before

I believe many users are seeing this but not bothering to report it

I have resorted to copying and pasting a whole post, editing it notepad then posting the whole lot back from notepad, it's that crazy :evil:

Add this to your overall_header.html
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />

I'm having this same problem - it seems to only happen in IE (I'm running IE 8). I tried adding the suggested meta tag above, but this has not solved the problem.

Any other insights on how I can make the reply box stop jumping to the middle of long messages?

Thanks!

As UberDragon, I added the meta tag in the overall_header.html.

I refreshed and its not working.

Note: There is two OverallHeader... one in the folfer admin/theme/...

another int the As defect Style Folder/ theme/...

I changed in both... not working.

Don't worry about the file in the adm folder, just the one in your styles folder.
Is it this board you are talking about? http://pasionxeneize.com.ar/foro/
I've just had a look, and that board is NOT sending that string in the header, so you have missed a step.
The file you should edit is at

Code: Select all

http://pasionxeneize.com.ar/foro/styles/designBB/template/overall_header.html
and it does contain the suggested string, so you haven't refreshed the style correctly.

Either:
ACP -> Styles -> Templates
Click on "Refresh" to the right of the template you are using

or

Click on "Run now" next to "Purge cache" on the first page of the ACP.

Next to the Template Name I have :

Desactivar | Exportar | Borrar | Vista previa

There is not Refresh o Refrescar.
