#2544 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

The focus order of the Review form is not normal

Reported by: anevins's profile anevins Owned by: sergeybiryukov's profile SergeyBiryukov
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Support Forums Keywords:


The fields in a form should normally be accessed from top to bottom, but this is not the case for the review form. One of the fields in the review form contains a tabindex value that disrupts the normal flow. This is regarding the "Review title" field. Someone using a keyboard may struggle to access this field. It's kinda okay if you can also see the page, but if someone was blind they may not realise there is a "Review title" field and so may never be able to submit the form successfully.

Suggestion: Remove the tabindex value.

Same issue with "Topic/Review Tags" input, "Notify me of follow-up replies via email" checkbox, and "Submit" button, they all have a 100+ tabindex.

For reference, [bb5561] removed tabindex from bbPress Default theme and deprecated bbp_get_tab_index().
