Fixed Clicking name in autocomplete dropdown when tagging doesn't insert name into editor

    When tagging someone, as the autocomplete dropdown appears, clicking a name doesn't insert it into the editor.

    I can't reproduce this...

    Possibly a Chrome related bug?

    I'm in Chrome. On Windows at the moment.

    Hmm, now I can't reproduce it but I have seen it before...

    I can reproduce it.

    When users have a space in their name, it isn't inserted.
    Try @Mike and then clicking Mike Buttery

    /hmm, in this post it didn't work, but when I try it in a new post in the editor below it does work with Mike Buttery.
    /trying a third time and it's not inserting again ==> Think it's related to the space in the name

    Weird.
    Running Chrome on Win 7

    What tends to happen is I click the name, the dropdown disappears but the cursor remains as the hand.

    I need to click in the text area again to get the focus back.

    It happens with any name, spaces or no spaces.

    Confirmed. In Opera too.

    Is it worth clearing browser caches what with the several updates that have been rolled out?

    The version strings should bypass the browser cache.

    @Mike - The name is inserted but the cursor remains a hand until I manually bring the focus back to the text area.

    Chrome / Win 7

    Probably best to start a new thread for that @Lee as it's a different issue. More difficult for @Mike to keep track of then.

    Haven't been able to reproduce this using Chrome on Mac, but still looking.

    Just tried on my Android tablet and it works fine.

    So it seems to be Windows Chrome only.

    I can confirm it too. Not happening on OS X.

    Just to confirm...

    This happens if you were to type

    @Bro

    And click on @Brogan in the auto-complete list?
    And the text @Brogan is not added into the post?

    What if you hit enter? Does it work then?

    I can't understand why several users on similar platforms are having different experiences here...

    Exactly.
    The text remains as is.

    That works.
    It inserts the name I am hovering over with the mouse.

    I can reproduce this with Safari, but it's quite strange. With a single click nothings happen, i have to double click it, then it works.

    Good call!

    If I'm quick enough to do it before the dropdown disappears, double click works.

    I can confirm this bug, again of Windows 7 running the latest version of Chrome.

    I just tried it with @Brogan:

    • Typing @Bro and then clicking on his name from the dropdown list didn't complete the tag.
    • Typing @Bro and then pressing enter did complete the tag
    • Typing @Bro and double clicking on his name did complete the tag

    What's strange is that on the odd occasion I can click on @Brogan's name and it does complete the tag. However most of the time it doesn't and I can't find any rhyme nor reason as to why this isn't consistent.
