Strange problem!

Recommended Posts

I got a strange problem replying to topics on here. When I click on 'reply to topic' I start typing and as soon as I hit the space bar the page jumps to the end and I cant put a space between anything. This repeats and I have clear it by having to backspace and delete everything, 

It's not a major problem but it's driving me mad and doesn't happen on any other forum.

Anyone know what it could be?

Hi Steve,

 

On which browser/device?

 

Normally the spacebar causes a browser to jump to the bottom of a page. I don't know why the text editor should be losing focus to the page when you space in text.

 

You can probably work round it by pressing Shift+Spacebar or Ctrl+Spacebar.

 

regards,

 

Martin.

Are you using MS Edge? In which case, before typing the first blank in your reply, you need to left-click at the point where you first blank will be.  Thereafter all works OK as you can see by this typing.

 

I believe it's an issue with this forum's software in that it may not be compatible with Edge.

 

Having said that, if you're browsing a web-site, you can scroll up and down pages by using the space bar, and I believe this issue is connected to that feature. For example, try browsing this topic and hitting the space bar ...

Well I access many different forums (as you do!) but this is the only one where this problem arises. Whether it's MS Edge or this forum's software is open to debate possibly!

See what I mean.  Whether Edge is also to blame I know not, but no other forum behaves this way.

Thanks Guys, it is MS Edge that I'm using, at least I know I'm not going mad!

You can work round this problem in Edge as follows when starting a reply:

 

1. type any character.

2. press CTRL+Z to delete it.

3. start typing your reply.

 

The posting editor on RMweb is actually a free open-source component called CK Editor: https://ckeditor.com/
