Run simple script when click quoted post link

Post by gvp9000 »

I want to run a simple scroll script

window.scrollBy({
top: -80, // could be negative value
left: 0,
behavior: 'smooth'
});

When I click/tap in the quoted post link and the quoted post is in the same page with the link ...
Normal behavior is phpBB to scroll up until the quoted post ... I want to go up a bit further.
Any idea how to achieve this ?

maybe simple css would be enough

Code: Select all

html {
    scroll-padding-top: 80px;
    scroll-behavior: smooth;
}

I realize that you have your reasons for potentially making this change. As board admin that is your right.

However I'll offer a counterpoint to changing normal or standard phpBB behaviour. Many of us are members of numerous phpBB boards so have become quite understanding how things work and quite adept using these types of features. If I stumble upon a phpBB board that changes normal phpBB behaviour it sometimes confuses me and quite often annoys me to the point that I do not return nor join the discussion there.

My $0.02 and I acknowledge your milage may vary.

I want the scroll to take place ONLY when I click on the quoted post link and only when the quoted post is in the same page.
I'm not familiar with css ... can you please give me instructions which file should I modify ?

Thank you.

You can put it in any css file. Just don't forget to purge the browser cache after making changes.

I totally agree with you.
I avoid make changes in the core phpBB files.
I just trying to fix some minor issues with an extension.
All the changes have been made to the extension files ...
