    Why is it that I can't type on this damn site well with any mobile browser? Seriously, I just want to be able to maneuver within text boxes when making a post without my damn arrow keys tabbing to the next button :(. I'm on a Android device. Does anybody have any ideas on what's the best way to post on this site without the ckusterf*ck of trying to make post whild dealing with countless typos? :(

    I'm sorry. What? Are you using a physical keyboard, or an on-screen keyboard? The answer may be obvious, here.. but hey who knows? My thing, though.. Is I use the touchpal keyboard... So much better than the default crap.

    I have the same issue, I either disable the WYSIWYG editor, or just use tapatalk.
    Or just be really careful so I don't need to use the arrow keys lol

    You can't quick reply with the on screen keyboard, but if you tap the little light switch, it will take you to the full editor which will be compatible with the on screen keyboard. Hope it helps.

    By "full editor" do you mean the traditional Android text pop out box that's normally used with apps? I'm using "Perfect Keyboard" on my tablet (I love the split keyboard that app offers) and a physical keyboard on my phone.

    I have no problem typing on my iPhone. But my bro's Android is a bitch to type on. I hit one key and it types the next letter. Pisses me off to no end.

    Try keeping your phone horizontal instead of vertical. Makes the keyboard a bit bigger and easier to type.

    You need to change the theme to IP.Board Mobile.

    You can do that by scrolling all the way down to the bottom of the page and clicking on the change theme option, then clicking on the IP.Board Mobile.

    No, he means within the format of the forum. You can quick reply, which will keep you on the same page and is done with.. javascript maybe? I'm not quite sure to be honest. Then when you click post your post appears and you stay on the same page. That's quick reply.

    Full reply is where your browser loads a full new page in which to reply. That one should work on your android.

    Of course, there's always other free android browsers which will let you use the full version of the site instead of the mobile version, like Skyfire.

    Quoted as an example.

    The quick reply, quoting, and such works fine for me when I've got the fancy WYSIWYG editor off.
    I leave it off almost all the time because it's just slow and annoying anyways. :P

    It looks like I can still type and such with it on, but god is it slower.

    EDIT: And yeah, I posted that from my tablet on the stock android 4.0 browser.
