    Keyboard does not show up when touch text field

    Hello all,

    This is my first message here.

    I have this website and when the text field (ie: login form) is touched the keyboard is not shown to be typed the field information.

    What could be that problem? (I have tested in other Tabblets and it works, ZTE)

    Could you guys have a look at this site? fashiondesigner.com.br/index2.php

    Try touching the first field (it is supposed to be a login email) and you will se that the keyboard doest no show up.

    Appreciate any help.

    Thanks

    I have exactly that problem - so it's not just your iPad!! I'm afraid I don't know the solution - maybe another Member will be along soon...but at least you're not alone....

    Looks like the website designer decided to get creative, without bothering to check what it would do to mobile browser compatibility. None of the iPad browsers that use the standard webkit engine seem to work; though I only tested Safari and iCab Mobile.

    The Puffin browser seems to work.

    I also tried Opera Mini, and the site confused it so badly you can't even get to a login screen.

    agree with the reset. Reset usually solves these problems.

    What you mean by "looks like the website designer decided to get creative" twerppoet?

    The website designer It's myself.

    I have not done anything different from others websites and they seem to work correctly,

    Well, it looked reasonably creative to me. However, obviously it is different from other websites, or it would work.

    I know little to nothing of php and javascript, but I did notice a couple of things that may help.

    When you tap on any field or link in the black area on the iPad you get the text descriptions. For some reason the iPad is treating the tap as a hover, or maybe a right click, instead of a left click. I'm guessing this part of the page is not just html.

    On the computer those descriptions come up whenever you hover over the text fields or buttons. That is unusual for a text field. What is even more unusual is how fast those descriptions come up. You usually have to hover for at least a second or two. In your site's case they are immediate.

    Again, my javascript knowledge is close to nil, but if I were you I'd take a close look at the javascript that handles the text entry and any default settings (in a header or something) dealing with hover or click behavior.

    Good luck.
