Taken To The Bottom Of The Screen When Editing Posts (4 posts)

    Hi all,

    Not sure whether anyone can help with this, but this only started occuring a month ago, and I believed that this would probably get fixed with the recent update. However this is now proving very annoying.

    These are the steps which occur when I wish to add/edit a post:

    1. Click on "Add Post" link to create a new post;

    2. Page appears to load fine at first but once it's fully loaded, the screen immediately jumps to the bottom of the page. No matter how many times I try to scroll up to the top to add an image or add a post title, the scrollbar refuses to respond.

    I can only do this by holding down the Shift key and repeatedly hitting the Tab key. Then I can scroll up, but the same happens again when the page is refreshed.

    Am I the only person experiencing this?

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    Hi Esmi,

    Thanks for your suggestion and sorry for the late reply. Unfortunately I deactivated all plugins but this did not have any effect.

    Switching to the Twenty Twenty had no effect either.

    Is this not happening with anyone else?
