I was on my iPad earlier (iPad 2 with iOS6) and wanted to post. But nothing would happen if I tapped inside the editor. No keyboard, nothing. I use the Atomic browser, with the user agent set for Firefox 15. I didn't try in Safari as I never use it by choice and Atomic has all my login passwords etc saved which Safari doesn't.
Is it just me or is it a bug with the 3.4 beta here as I have no problem posting on my own 3.3.4 forums?
Best way to find out if it is a bug or not directly lays in the editor. You must add all items you feel as a bug to tracker.
I didn't want to add it to the bug tracker as I don't know if it's a bug or not, which is why I asked if it was maybe just me or something to do with my iPad? If others were having it too, then I'd add it to the bug tracker :)
If your browser sends a Firefox user agent, the site is going to behave as if you are using Firefox (on a regular computer). Firefox supports the full blown editor, however last I checked, the iPad does not, which would explain why you are hitting a conflict.
In short, what you are doing is probably an untested and unsupported fringe case. Feel free to submit a bug report and we'll look into it, but a hunch says there's not going to be much we can do about that.
I purposely use a user agent in my iPad browsers for a variety of reasons, mainly to avoid sites that keep throwing annoying pop-ups telling you they've got some app or other (even if you have the app) or because some sites force you into a reduced mobile version.
Like I said, I have no problem posting on my own forums with 3.3.4, using any user agent in either Atomic or Mercury browsers. The only blip I get in 3.4.4 is with smilies: tapping on one places it in front of the very first word typed - but I can live with that :smile:
So it seems to me this inability to post (when not using iPad Safari) is for 3.4 only as I've only experienced it here on the IPS forums with 3.4? Should I therefore submit it as a possible bug or is it due to some change in the editor in 3.4?
If you have no trouble in 3.3.x but do in 3.4.x, yes, please post a bug report.
Duly done :smile:
