Fixed iOS8 Safari reply leaves cursor and keyboard active

On iOS 8 Safari iPhone 6, hitting reply to an existing post has unusual behavior with the cursor position and keyboard.

Once the reply has been added, the keyboard remains active, and a blue flashing cursor appears just beneath the actual post. I have attached a screenshot showing the cursor by the 'A moment ago' text, and the keyboard remaining active.

The thread I used is at https://xenforo.com/community/threads/test.83534/

Unfortunately, I believe this is an iOS 8 issue (amongst many...). I will see if I can find a workaround, but cursor display is generally handled by the browser (the only thing we could really try to do is to blur the editor).

I believe I have worked around this now (rolling out here as I type this). Just blurring the editor doesn't work, but it appears that I can focus the iframe document/window and that sorts it. Bit strange...
