Description

Use case: As an editor, in the backend, I use the Page module to edit content on a long page with lots of content elements. I scroll down to some content element on say half of the page and edit it. Then I want to edit that same element again (because I forgot something, after checking the outcome in the frontend) or I want to continue with the element right below.

Currently: After having edited my element and clicking close or save, I am being redirected back to the top of the page module. That is really annoying because I have to search and scroll again until I find the element I was editing.

This could be easily improved as follows: After saving/closing a content element, I am being redirected back to the anchor / height of that element so that I can easily spot it again.

Use case: As an editor, in the backend, I use the Page module to insert a content element on a long page with lots of existing content elements. I scroll down to some content element on say half of the page and insert an element below. Then I usually want to edit that same element again (because I forgot something, after checking the outcome in the frontend) or I want to do something with the element right below.

Currently: After having inserted / edited my element and clicking save, I am being redirected back to the top of the page module. That is really annoying because I have to search and scroll again until I find the place where I was.

The feature exists for editing existing elements but not for creating new ones.

Is this a regression? see #70074

It seems so. Please note that the feature works for editing existing elements, but not for creating new ones.

(Actually what I really want as an editor is to create and edit elements without page reloads, but as long as we have them, returning back to the right content element is clearly the lower hanging fruit ;-)

@ Moritz Ahl thank you for your reply and clarification; then it is not a regression - if this does not exist yet for creating new content elements, do you mind if I change this issue to "feature"?

#6 Updated by Moritz Ahl 2 months ago

hmm #700074 description says "SHOULD: It should jump to the element I just edited or created". Since the ticket was closed I thought that it was implemented, so I considered it a bug. But anyway go ahead as you like :-)

I see your point. I'll keep it as it is
Best regards and thanks for your time.
