Can't post text on Apple mobile devices
#1
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.

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.

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.

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.
