Participatory Spirituality for the 21st Century
I don't know the answer, Dial, but I will find out. I'll put in an inquiry at the Ning Creators group (which is where I usually go when I notice a glitch or something).
Hi, Dial, I just got a response back from a Ning technician. This is what he said:
Good point, Bruce. I think that Safari on the iPad won't display the text editing tools. Not sure if we can solve for that immediately if it is a browser issue. However, we are working on a mobile update now, so we'll test this in the new mobile version and see if we can nail down the issue a bit more.
So, it sounds like it might be Safari that is the culprit. Is that the browser you are using? I'll let you know what else I hear from him.
I read comments by users on the Creators forum and found a number of people who said their Ning forum worked fairly well for them on iPad. Some reported issues with Flash incompatibility, however, and the recommendation for that is to use a browser app called Skyfire.
P.S. I'd asked the tech at Ning if using a different browser on iPad would help, and he said it might, but he wasn't sure, since he'd only used Safari on his iPad.
Thanks for that Balder. I'll do a bit of experimenting and report back.
