Automatic Scrolldown on a page

ColacXColacX Posts: 141Member
Hi I've made a simple chat page using php. the thing is when people post many chat messages they eventually have to scroll down the page to see the messages. I want a code in either html or php that scrollsdown to the bottom of the page automaticly. Thanks for you help.

Feel free to visit.
This server is on my laptop so it's not online 100% of the day. I'm still learning how to build a webpage, this is just an experiment page. Feel free to comment about server security/performance and stuff.

    Here's a good tutorial about web coding: http://www.w3schools.com/

    You could also use a name-tag and link to that.

    For the name tag: HTML > Links. There's also an example entitled "Link to a location on the same page".

    With the #bottom after the url, as can be read at the header "The Anchor Tag and the Name Attribute" on the same page.

    Because it's explained in the tutorial.... www.w3schools.com is truly a good site to learn various web-languages and a quick reference for them.
