    I can post on this forum, but I am also on the nest.com and while I can post the title, I can't post in the message box.... But on this forum, I can.... Anyone have a clue as to why not?

    If you are using the Safari browser, sometimes it acts that way on some forums... sometimes. There is a browser out there called Atomic that allows you to set it so that web sites thinks your browser is Safari, Safari for iPad, Safari Mobile, Firefox, or IE Explorer6, 7 or 8. The app isn't free -- it costs 99¢!

    I don't have any problems posting to this forum. I have my ipad set to auto login otherwise it is a bit of a pain putting in my credentials every time I come to this site.

    Wow! I never would have thought that posting to a forum could be problem. I'm on about seven forums and I don't have any problems at all.

    Safari works fine for me. However, when I use Atomic Browser the same thing happens. I like Atomic but I had to switch back to Safari for most of my browsing because of this glitch.

    For whatever it is worth, you should have no problems at all posting to any forums that use vBulletin software.

    There is absolutely nothing in vBulletin that would prevent your posting, and the company that owns vBulletin tested to make sure that you could easily post with the iPad and iPhone.

    Most of the employees of the company that owns vBulletin are doing their casual posting with an iPhone or iPad.

    If you cannot do something here that you want to do, then the site's owners need to do a little research into why.

    I have no problems with posting in text boxes in this forum and also iphone4 forums.net where I am also a moderator using safari.
    I do have issues with other browsers which when posting the text box is greyed out. The title is ok. I have not changed the preferences to support safari but I will look into it as it's a strange one
