Cursor doesn't blink in text fields on Internet Explorer

  1. On the site http://www.howellfarmlodging.com on the bottom right there is a contact form. When you click in a text field, the cursor will not blink or appear in any text field when viewing in any version of Internet Explorer or Opera for Windows. All OSX browsers show the blinking cursor fine.

    I'm running Windows 7.

    Thank you
    Bryan

  2. I don't have a flashing cursor in Chrome 24.x.x.x on OSX 10.7.5. Looking at a couple other browsers now.

    UPDATE: the cursor is visible in Chrome but it was right against the grey border, so I did not see it.

  3. I see the cursor in Chrome Version 24.0.1312.52 in Windows. My issues seem to only be limited to IE and Opera in windows

  4. Sorry, I updated my topic. Let me find a Windows machine to test on.

  5. The cursor actually appears to go behind the input field (IE 9 on Windows 7). Try entering the field from above or below and watch how the cursor disappears. Does the cursor disappear in IE on Windows when you view the form in the form preview?

  6. If it works properly in the form preview, I would validate the XHTML on the page:
    http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.howellfarmlodging.com%2F&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0

    Invalid HTML can cause focus problems like this.

  7. Chris,

    I fixed the issue this afternoon. As it turns out my background color must of been too close to the cursor color for IE to render correctly so they bled together. After I changed the background color a little, it solved the issue.

    Thanks much for your help. That theme is an old free theme I got long ago and I need to validate it at some point. There are alot of errors. I might just start over with it.

    Anyway...love Gravity Forms. Thanks for the help.
