I am writing this question from my Windows PC. When I tried to take Safari to the iForums, my ipad2 suggested downloading the iPF app to use with the forums. I tried it. (I'm an ipad and an apple newbie.)
When I tried to enter a message to start a thread, the ipad2 (in iPF) allowed me to select any field and fill it in EXCEPT the message body. I was only allowed to copy the empty message body to the clipboard. I could not bring up the onscreen keyboard by touching the message body field.
I was logged in. What was I doing wrong? Please allow me to note, as a refugee from the windows world, that providing me with a special purpose app for a website that fails to work is a real downer.
