538924500_Inactive (New Admin) 4/14/2008 3:51 PM EST : Form boxes acting strangely

Between 2pm and 3pm EST this afternoon I noticed a small white-out of all GuildPortal pages (including the home page) and ever since then any page that has a form feature has been acting strangely.

Specifically the page automatically scrolls down so that the first form box is at the very bottom of the screen. This includes the Shout box and the Forum search feature. For me this means that our forums are a huge pain to browse normally as our Shout feature is at the bottom of the forums page. I will move it temporarily, but I'm hoping that there's a fix for this problem out there?

I know at least two other guild members have been experiencing this problem in addition to myself. My site is - Clan Steinhammer but I have checked out several other guild pages with the same effect (including the Admin forums here).

Has anyone else been having this issue?

Thanks!

I noticed it on the Admin Forums that it always places the Search box at the very bottom of my browser window (no matter what size) so I'd always have to scroll up. I closed up the Game Forums to stop it.

My own site doesn't do this. (I'm not using any custom CSS if that matters)

Alright, has to do with the code I pushed yesterday that sets the focus to the login box, but if no login box, it finds the first non-hidden element.  Looks like in your browser it's also scrolling down to ensure that the control with the focus is also visible, so I'll modify the output code to only work on the login controls.

Having the same problem.  Each page loads near the bottom if I have a form box there.  Frustrating, but seems to be in the fix process.
