I'm using Freeform 1.7.2 and since version 1.6.2 a form anchor is automatically added:

Added form anchor to be automatically generated so inline error returns can focus down to form, if it's lower down on page.

Yet, the submission still jumps to the top of the page if there is an error. I asked a similar question before, but this was before the name anchor was added. Shouldn't this now work by itself?

Here's my super simple code:

{{ craft.freeform.form("formName", {
   instructionsBelowField: true,
   useRequiredAttribute: true,
}).render() }}
  • Unless you provide a little bit more information for us (what works, what does not work, how it is supposed to work eg via URL param or route param/Javascript or whatever, are there any console errors) it would be more useful to contact the creator of the plugin. Nov 16, 2017 at 14:04
  • I know Robin, but this is the way Solspace advices me to ask for support. But I'll ask them directly and post the answer here then.

  • Okay, I wasn't sure if this was a bug, but apparently it is.
