    Login fields - displayed in plain text

    Sometimes when loading the forum and entering username/password this is displayed in plain text and on submit of the information the login fails.

    IE 7 / Firefox 3.6.3 - Windows XP SP2

    I will take a look at the template, I presume your cypherite?
    RE: loading issue, does that happen on the forum index page or everywhere?

    You wouldnt happen to have noscript/adblock running? a JS is supposed to change the field time to fix that.

    oooh that issue, no ive come across that on various things including Facebook when clicking into comment and status boxes when using FF. It seems to be something common, maybe it could be ABP but must admit never noticed it here on Edugeek.

    Yeh abp or anything that filters JS. Basically there is an onClick that changes the type of the field from text to password which adds the blanking. I have a notice for those that dont have JS enabled using noscript/disabled informing them the site will have issues without JS but abp has no way to notify the user as JS is still on as such but filtered. Having JS/noscript enabled can break quite a lot of things tbh.

    I'm no web guru but can't you have it as a text field ie

    <input type="password" size="25" maxlength="30">

    Is it down to the package you use on edugeek that it needs to use js to change the field type ?

    I have ABP disabled on here as I don't mind our ads but Facebook was full of general crud so gave over on it so its probably ABP

    Yes, ABP. As pointed out above is it not possible to change the field type using HTML?
