can anyone tell me why my blog post jumps down to the video near the bottom of the post?

it does in on every browser and 2 different machines and it does it when you enter the primary domain http://rbarnes.com or the post url http://rbarnes.com/989/atlanta-bloggers-meetup/

click a link and let it fully load before you do anything, you'll see it jump

I took the wistia video out and left the youtube video in and it still jumped down - then I took both videos out and it still jumps down

i fixed a tag not closed - but no help...

what is making it do this?

big thanks if you can help.


this theme is eleven40 child of Genisis

It's not jumping for me. Have you tried multiple browsers? Are you pressing f5, or are you actually doing a fresh load of the page? Because many (all?) browsers jump to where you were on the page if you just refresh. – mor7ifer Mar 26 '12 at 19:12
It jumps for me in Firefox when clicking the atlanta-bloggers-meetup URL. There are a couple JS errors on the page as well, which should probably be addressed first to make sure they're not causing the issue. – SickHippie Mar 26 '12 at 19:21

Install web developer add on in firefox and disable all script from drop down menu then refresh the page. see the result it is not moving to the video , it means there is some javascript code in your theme that make it to move down to the video.
