    Is it possible to change the .com button in the keyboard to something else e.g. .dk?

    It would be nice because i visit more .dk (danish) sites than .com. My iPad 2 is already set to danish in the settings under international. Is it at all possible?

    If you press and hold the .com button it should give you alternatives to select from, I get .uk and .co.uk and a few others, I assume it's related to your international settings, so hopefully you will also get them tailored to you.

    What it shows you is based on Settings - General - International - Region Format

    You should copy this tip to the Hints & Tips thread - I'd have never thought you could change this - it'll come in useful :D

    Thanks DefBref

    The button is still .com, but I do get some options by pressing it down - including .dk. It's better than nothing I suppose though I'd still like to have the .dk-button in itself.

    .com is still the dominant domain tld, so it still makes sense to leave it as the default if you are not going to allow configured defaults.

    Kerman--since this thread is 2 years old, chances are the members participating in this Forum have moved on and will not return to this thread.

    We will now close this thread at this time.

    Thanks!
