Description

When trying to navigate the new topic form, I noticed that you're never able to reach the field for entering the URL you need help with without clicking it directly

Research:

  1. We inject that field using the bbp_theme_after_topic_form_title hook.
  2. There is a js file in bbPress templates/default/js/editor.js which hijacks the browsers tabbing.

We would have to submit a patch to get that working. Alternatively, moving the field below the textarea would solve the issue. The title and content always want to stay together.

I believe it's between the two in the hopes that more people would use the field, rather than putting it in the content and then spotting the field afterwards.

Just noting that this also affects the Ratings stars as mentioned in #2547.

  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed

Closing this out as worksfrome, as the field is now both reachable, and also in the correct spot where we would want it in the tab order.

There have been no commits directly impacting the code here, so this may either have been an upstream bbPress change, or just technology getting smarter on their own :)
