UX issues when changing post authors


(Gustavo Niemeyer) #1

When changing a post author, two different completion boxes show up:

The one at the top doesn’t do anything useful, and selecting it and clicking enter delivers the request, but doesn’t actually change the author. For it to work, one must select the edge of the bottom one instead.

Then, once the real item is selected and the author changing happens successfully, the underlying topic flies all the way to the top instead of staying in place where the modified post was sitting.

The one pictured on top is specific to your browser; we don’t control that.

Everything in there is specific to my browser. This is a web application. :slight_smile:

I believe you want autocomplete="off" or similar.

… yes, I’ve confirmed that this solves the issue.

Sure, @techAPJ can you add an autocomplete off here?
