OpenOLAT features a "form dirty" mechanismus. When a form has been modified, the submit button turns orange to indicate the user, that he must press the form to continue. When he does not press the button and navigates to some other places, the system displays an error message that informs the user about the fact that he will loose the unsaved data.
This is great, however for forms like login forms or search forms this is not so great. While the orange submit button is good for usability reasons, the popup message does not make sense at all if the form is not about saving data.
This issue is about changing the infrastructure in a way that the button can turn orange to indicate the next action, however to suppress the warn message for cases like the login screen.
- Go to login screen
- Let your browser fill out your credentials or add something to the form
- Then press the guest link
=> popup message appears
