I’m setting up a custom webauth with email input required for a test wlan.  The problem I keep having is that on the webauth page if you place your cursor in the email address field and press enter/return on your keyboard it takes you to the default wlc internal webpage.  It all works as far as putting any email address in the field and clicking the accept button.  It is only when you hit the enter key instead of clicking the accept button when the problem exhibits itself.  It happens on either the default webauth bundle you download from cisco or if I customize one of the pages from the bundle.  Has anyone else encountered this problem?

I don't have personal experience with the issue, but that is a common web issue when JavaScript is used for the submission. A web person who knows some JavaScript should be able to fix it pretty easily.

It then uses the JavaScript onclick-event, which puts values into the form fields, and calls 'submit()'. Using 'Go' (on iOS/Android) or 'Enter' (on normal keyboards), simulates a 'SUBMIT', hence 'BUTTON' won't be triggered, and you get the behavior you're explaining. So, changing 'BUTTON' to 'SUBMIT' should do the trick. -- Joachim ********** Participation and subscription information for this EDUCAUSE Constituent Group discussion list can be found at http://www.educause.edu/groups/.
