Ok, I've tweaked, tried and quit. My enter no longer does next on TMF. Don't remember if it was like that before or after the upgrade to IE 6, but i can't seem to find the right option. My turn for help.

Nope, I use the regular boards and it works fine for me (again, IE6 under Win2K).

Is it possible that you have turned off Active Scripting in your browser?

After looking at the code for the page, I found the JavaScript shown below. What it does is go to the next or previous message if you press ENTER or CTRL-ENTER.

If scripting is disabled, then this would not run.

var inhibit = false;

document.onkeydown = KeyboardNav

function KeyboardNav()
{
if ( !inhibit )
{
if ( event.keyCode == 13 || event.keyCode == 190 )
location.href = "/Message.asp?mid=16432433"

if ( event.keyCode == 220 || event.keyCode == 188 )
location.href = "/Message.asp?mid=16431662"

}
}

Hi Lizard,

Just to clarify... it's not a shortcut issue, it's javascript code that's been placed in the pages to respond to user actions (in this case to pressing a key or key combination).

The Webmaster's corner might want to see it, I'm sure some could put it to good use.

My IE 6 on Win2000 does click next when you hit Enter (I never knew this before!)

Enter is "next" and \ is "prev". Also < is "prev" and > is "next" if you do them with shift (i.e., comma and period).

Not using the shift key with the comma/period appears to work too.

Looking back at that JavaScript code, these are the keys that the script checks for:

13 = Enter - (next)
220 = "\" - (prev)
188 = "," (aka the "<" key) - (prev)
190 = "." (aka ">") - (next)

Note, after some experimentation, pressing Shift-Period (to get a ">") generates 2 keycode events: 16 for the Shift key (which is ignored) and 190 for the period key (".") which the script uses. Similar for Shift-Comma, generating a 16 and 188.

Well, for the most part, it ain't broke so...

Then again, now IE 5.5 is pretty "settled"...and the "enter = next" feature of IE 6 is pretty inviting...

BTW, re: your original post, have you tried using the Repair Tool?

That was a typo. I meant to type:

Also < is "prev" and > is "next" if you do them without shift (i.e., comma and period).

Robearpa,

The "enter = next" feature isn't unique to IE6. It works with many versions of IE.

Wow - Enter does next? I had no idea - thanks for that! I'm running IE 6 and it works for me. Hope you get sorted out!

I'm still on 5.5 too - enter & "\" work just fine and I see no reason to upgrade either. Am I missing something wonderful in IE6?
thx,

Haven't had time to explore the new features, but here is a description.

Under IE6, which option (Tools Options Advanced) are you refering to as I have most things enabled and see nothing specific to active scripting.

I doubt it's changed (much) from IE5 but try Tools>Options>Security>Custom and scroll down the list.

Active scripting turned off is a very safe way to run OE, too, as regards viri.

I don't have IE6 (still on 5 here at home & 5.5 at work), but here's where it is on IE5:

Tools -> Internet Options -> Security Tab -> Custom Level -> Scroll down to the Scripting section.

The options are Disable, Enable, or Prompt.
