  2. tab index is the sequence in which you navigate through a page or in our case, a web form using only the keyboard ( tab key ) . By default, elements are tabbed through in the order in which they appear in the markup, but you can define a specific tab index number to change the order if you prefer. There's plenty of information about this if you do a quick search. This site does a pretty good job of covering the topic.

    Thanks. OK, I think it's not what I thought. I thought perhaps it was a way to tell the form where to reload to but just found your post about putting anchor in functions.php and that fixed the issue. HOWEVER - I still cant figure out why when Ajax is enabled, the form submits successfully, but no notification message is ever displayed. I was hoping this might relate to that. I've disabled ajax because I was getting people submitting the form multiple times since they saw no notification confirmation message upon submission with ajax. Any suggestions on that? I did search the forums but couldnt find an answer. Thank you.

  4. reelseo, please post a link to your form so we can take a look at it.

    Since it's completely unrelated to tabindex, you might want to start a new topic with a link to your broken form with AJAX enabled. Thanks
