    Hi! I just got my iPad a few days ago and am still learning. So far the majority of tme I have no issues with the keyboard. On one of the forums I visit the keyboard does not pop up for the text box. I tap inside and get nothing. I was showing my MIL yesterday and of course it worked then, but can't get it to work again. It works for the title not the message portion. Any suggestions? Thank u!

    try using another browser and see if you have the same issue. IE: Atomic Browser.
    Try resetting ipad, power off/on.

    maybe one of you could post your forums and we can give a try to see if its individual issue or universal to ipad.

    One forum that doesn't work is my Galway Triathlon Club forum. (Can't post the link as I don't have enough posts written here yet.)

    I also have the same issue (of the keyboard not showing up) when I go to send a message in Facebook. It won't allow me type in the recipients name, but will allow me type the message.

    Thanks.

    Addition: just checked atomic browser and still have the same issue.

    Problem lies with the webpage encoding :(

    Perhaps you could start a thread on those boards asking them to be more mobile friendly.
