Preview message not working correct

Post by TImDeBeer » Thu Mar 06, 2008 7:27 am

Hello everyone,

One of our forumusers complaints previewing of messages is not working correctly.
When he enters a new message and presses the "Preview" button, the preview is quickly shown but returns immediately. He is using Internet Explorer.
Does anyone have a clue to help him and me?

Kind regards,
Tim de Beer (global moderator of http://www.refoforum.nl)

If it only happens to one user it suggests a problem their end, not with the forum.

For starters I'd say log out, delete the site cookie, close the browser, clear its cache and log in again.

I asked him, but have received no response until now.

What he tells is: "When I click "Preview", a preview flashes one moment and the message returns immediately to the point of departure.

Well, do you understand what he means by that? Does he mean he is returned back to the post edit screen? Is he sure he is not looking at the preview screen, just scrolled down a little to show the edit form on that screen?

I don't think so, because he is an experienced forumuser.
However: we have just migrated to phpBB3, so I'm not completely sure.

But I'll pass him that question; thanks.

I've noticed the same annoying behaviour.
With Firefox all works fine;
With Explorer instead, If I write a message and click on the preview button, Browser show me the preview, but doesn't stop at the top of the page, it scrolling down at the last caret position in the form.

This is very annoying.

Is it possible to fix?

Thank you in advance.

What browser versions, what style? To fix something, the developers will need more information.

OK,
the bug occurs on Internet Explorer version 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_rtm.040803-2158.
The style of the board is subsilver2.

Thank you again.

Nothing yet?
No solutions?

Hi,
I and some Users have the same problem:
-write an answer
- klick "preview"
- screen jumps up to the first preview-line
- milliseconds later screen jumps dows to the last prewies-line (signatur in preview)

Solution-hint
If I click on previwe here on phpbb.com:
- screen jumps up to the top of the site (above the header-logo)
- them jumps down UNDER the header-logo (and under Forum-Rules) to the preview.

What is the anchor, the previwe-button jumps to?

Code: Select all

<div class="post bg2" id="preview">
	<div class="inner"><span class="corners-top"><span></span></span>


	<div class="postbody">
That point might be the solution of our problem.

Thanks
Uwe

Oups ... now, after writing the lines with the code, the preview here also jumps to the last 15 lines of the preview, and not to #preview :cry:
And if I write more lines, the preview always jumps to the last 15 lines of my preview ...
