Why can't I see the formatting options and smileys when posting on xF sites using an IPad. Thanks
As far as I'm aware, the Apple iPhone/iPad browsers don't support the WYSIWYG editor.
Nope they don't.
someone should definitely have an iphone/ipad to text all functionality for xF.
Kier has an iPhone, Ashley too (3G) as far as I am aware.
There's not much that can be done if Apple don't support the editor though.
I also have an iphone. We have to use the iPhone's editor.
I don't think that's necessarily true. I can't use any editor on any site I visit on the iPhone, except iPhone's editor.
Mike had this to say about it:
Safari on the iPhone is not the same as Safari on the desktop. There are very significant differences, one of which is that WYSIWYG editors in general do not function. (The browser does not recognise the WYSIWYG editable area as a typeable text box).
Thanks, though understanding doeesn't make it any less frustrating
im really tired of all these guys such as apple, mozilla, ms, etc causing so much work for everybody.
i wish it was realistic for everybody to simply refuse to code workarounds, in effect leaving their browsers broken.
look how long we had to suffer with navigator 4...
Is there an alternative browser for the iPhone that *does* display the editor?
Continuation of problems with mobile browsers. Buttons of the editor are displayed and work, but the contex menu, text allocation, navigation under the text does not work as cursor keys.
How come the VB editor works fine on iOS?
Check this :
I am on my iPad 5.1.1 (safari) and able to see the changes in wysiwyg. I'm speculating but is xenforo using an outdated version of tinymce? I'm not sure if this issue/feature should be posted in the bug session. But it is crucial to get an editor to show up on the iPad (as well as android if it isn't working).
