#33770 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Comments: duplicated "author" ID and Quick Edit form

Reported by: afercia Owned by: afercia
Milestone: 4.4 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 4.3
Component: Comments Keywords: has-patch
Focuses: ui, accessibility Cc:


In the Comments screen both a table column and a form field have an ID with value "author". This prevents the label associated to the form field to correctly work. To reproduce:

  • go in the Comments screen
  • "Quick Edit" a comment, a form will appear
  • click on the "Name" label (see screenshot below)


When clicking the label, focus should be moved to the form field.
