Can't post text on Apple mobile devices
I can't post text on either my iPhone or my iPad. 
I type it and when I tap "Post Thread" my text disappears and I get an error message that my text is missing.
I don't use Tapatalk (hate it!) but I just use the site "as is". 
Everything else seems to work fine, I can read posts and treads and even do some moderating stuff etc.
This has been going on for e few weeks btw, I just noticed it again when I tried to send some seasons greetings from my iPad yesterday.

Check out my video:

I am having no problems with being on the site with my iPad. I can post pics and everything. The only thing I haven’t figured out how to do is to copy and paste a link to a website. I can no problem from my computer, but I have no idea how to do it from my iPad. Other than that it’s great to use the iPad. I can just sit on the couch or I can take it out to the garage.
Hope you can find a way to make it work.

The site has been wonky on an IPhone since the update a year or two ago.

Have to dodge all of the floating white hot links that are on top of the white text box.
Sounds like it's time to switch to Android.   Haha

Seriously - I got nuthin'.  I'm still using a ruggedized flipper.  whistling

I have an Android tablet and I have the floaters, too.

Wow.  Am I the only weirdo that still uses my PC exclusively for online stuff?   Undecided

@ Mister 4x4, I still use my laptop to post and surf the net as well. Might as well try to post a "test" here from my iPhone to see if it works or doesn't.

Well here is a test text from my iphone to see if it works.

Above is a screen shot showing the floating hot links circled in red.

Got to toss this out there...
I’m used to the quarks of the site.  I know that I dam well better type it at least somewhat correctly the first time, as whatever wording I want to edit will surely be under some mystery white hot link.  If I dare to move the cursor anywhere in the text box it is like Russian roulette as to if I will be able to place the cursor where I want in the text box, or be swept away by some mystery white hotlink to some part of the website that is not where I want to go.

Make it more challenging.  

Occasionally I spew out a string of profanity and wait until I get back to a proper desktop computer to do whatever I was trying to do.

Now I know I could download tap talk and things would probably be better, but at this point I am acclimated to the disfunction of participating on this site from an Apple product.
