[Login] Auto-Focus on Login Form

Postby Pr0nstar on Sun May 21, 2006 1:22 pm

Weird threadname, but here's the point:

Is it possible to make the default placement of the cursor as you enter the http://www.conquerclub.com site to the text-box where you enter username?

It's not a big deal obviously, just a small "makes it a wee bit easier" thing..

If that's not possible, maybe make the text-box the "primary target" when you press the Tab key?

I wouldn't mind that either.

Any word on the "end attack" button moving somewhere, anywhere? You'd think I'd learn how to click by now, but nope.

I don't like those auto cursor placement things, my computers slow, so by the time they load up and place my cursor I'm usually entering my password... only then I get relocated and type out my pass for all to see. But... I guess there's not many people with computers as slow as mine anymore, so do what you want.

qeee1 and Jota, that's why I also included the suggestion of making the text-box primary target for the Tab key..

cursor

Postby s.xkitten on Wed Oct 25, 2006 9:12 pm

hey, just a quick suggestion....when the website loads up, have the cursor automatically go to the login box. i know i hate having to click on those things to log in, and i bet other people do to. not meaning to nit pick on your site, i think it is awsome. anyway, thank you

This has been brought up before, and it slows down a lot of page loading for people unfortunately. But as a compromise, if you press 'Tab', your cursor will automatically pop up into the login box.

Suggestion:

It's very simple but would have a huge impact. When you load the conquerclub.com page the default focus should be the user name field. Any other website where you have to log in defaults the keyboard input to be the username field.

This would help everyone on the site. It sounds picky and dumb, but I work for a software company and this is very straightforward and standard.

I really don't see how this would be a "Huge impact". Around here that is something along the lines of a huge new feature. Or according to many users, new dice.

Still, it's a logical move. You could also just use LastPass or something equally awesome.

I don't know that it would be a huge impact, but it would absolutely make things easier. And such an easy thing to implement, I can't imagine it wouldn't be in by...say...2018.

If it is as easy as cherrycoke45 claims, why can't it just be done. I understand that things do move somewhat slowly around here, but this is one that seems to be a no-brainer.

Concise description:
  • When your browser loads the conquerclub website, you can automatically type your user name into its box without have to click on the username box

Specifics/Details:
  • You know how most websites, like google or facebook, when your browser loads them you can just start typing your username and then hit tab for your password? Not conquerclub, where I have to click on the user name box

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • I know this is a little thing, but it would save time. A little bit of time X thousands of users X thousands of logins would make it worth it

Most browsers come with a "Remember My Username/Password" option you can select. Then you never have to type in your username or password, all you have to do is click the login button.

I don't save passwords on my computer. And I use multiple computers, like my parents, room mates, and numerous computers at my school. So its not really that easy.

It's about making this site better and more user friendly.

I agree with this generally, but I will say that in my browser a single click of the TAB key puts the cursor in the username box. I'm using firefox

Sure its just a single click or hit of tab. But the cursor should already be there. This is easy, would improve the site, and if you wanted to do the math could literally save cumulative hours and days of peoples time.
