#7555 closed enhancement (fixed)

can't submit multiple tags with 'tab-space' action

Reported by: Qoolos Owned by:
Milestone: 3.5 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.6.1
Component: Accessibility Keywords: needs-patch

When adding a single tag to a page or post, you can submit that tag by pressing Tab - Space. The Tab will tab the cursor to the submit button, and Space will submit the single tag.

But, when you add multiple tags at once, comma seperated as supposed, you cannot tab-space to submit all tags at once, WHEN THERE ARE NO TAGS ON THAT POST ALREADY.

When there ARE tags on this posts already, the tab-space action works as supposed. So when there are no tags, submitting multiple tags at once cannot be done with tab-space. It's a small lack of feature, not even a serious bug but still, a bit annoying.

This has nothing to do with js. We will have to reassign the tabindex attribute (or perhaps remove it) for most elements.

Forgive my ignorance, but is there a reason you would need to hit Space instead of Enter/Return to submit?

comment:7 Denis-de-Bernardy5 years ago

@Jane: I can probably answer than for him. On Macs, you use Space a lot to submit. You occasionally get two options -- one linked to enter, the other one to space. It quickly becomes a habit to hit the Space key instead of the Enter key.

Since [21311] removed most of the tabindexes in the admin, I'm now able to add multiple tags with both tab-space or tab-enter actions.
