Greetings, Fellow Moodlers,
This is odd... Lately, I sometimes cannot log into the documentation wiki. The username and password fields will not accept any input. It's as though they are read-only fields.
This is intermittent.
Anyone else running into this?
Hmmm... I can log in fine, but I have two students reporting that they cannot log in to the docs at http://docs.moodle.org/en/index.php?title=Special:Userlogin.
I do not see anything out of the ordinary in the HTML, but maybe someone has a sharper eye than I do.
<table border='0'> <tr> <td align='right'><label for='wpName'>Username:</label></td> <td align='left'> <input tabindex='1' type='text' name="wpName" id="wpName" value="" size='20' /> </td> <td align='left'> <input tabindex='3' type='checkbox' name="wpRemember" value="1" id="wpRemember" /><label for="wpRemember">Remember me</label> </td> </tr> <tr> <td align='right'><label for='wpPassword'>Password:</label></td> <td align='left'> <input tabindex='2' type='password' name="wpPassword" id="wpPassword" value="" size='20' /> </td> <td align='left'> <input tabindex='4' type='submit' name="wpLoginattempt" value="Log in" /> </td> </tr> </table>
Any helpful suggestions or ideas would be appreciated.
Does Mauno's advice in a previous moodle docs discussion help? Otherwise, perhaps you could use the tab button to move the focus to the username and password fields.
I've not come across this problem myself (as I always have the remember me box checked ) but it definitely requires investigation. Please add a report to the tracker.
Thanks, Helen. I will check out Mauno's post. Unfortunately, tabbing does not seem to help.
If necessary, I will post this in the tracker.
Just tried out Muano's suggestion and it worked! That is odd, but it is good to know.
It looks like you need to click the word "Username"
and "Password" itself - not the box. This must be
some kind of a relative positioning problem.
Thanks for the tip, Helen.
