Scrolling down while typing a response on a smartphone.
#1
I am having this very annoying issue when posting a reply to someones comment or editing my post. When the window loads I will try and scroll down to the end of the last sentence but the page refuses to scroll down to the last 2-3 sentences. This makes it nearly impossible to reply to multiple quotes, long winded post or edit them. This isn't an issue when it's a short post. I just click the big empty white space and I am easily at the end of the last sentence. Can we put in a button that takes us all the way to the end, past the "[/quote]" mark and end of the last sentence? Or maybe scroll arrows so we can manually get to the end of the post?

This error occurs both on the full site and mobile site.

I can't reproduce this issue at all?? Everything works fine on my Android.

A Reading from the Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, Verses 16 to 20:

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."

It happens on every site. It is an issue with android and iphone for the text input box.

Thanks guys, the issue mainly pops up when replying to a long post with a long response. No matter how hard I try I cannot get the text window to scroll to the very end. The only work around I came up with is copying/pasting a post into a word processor on my phone, writing my response then pasting it into a reply. On all the forums I have been on I was able to get to the bottom of the text box but here it's impossible even with great patience and effort.

Try a different browser. I'm currently using Dolphin because the one that came on my phone is unworkable for me.

I hear Chrome, Firefox, and Opera offer browsers as well. They really behave quite differently when trying to use forums over Android OS phones.

Thanks, I would prefer sticking with my current browser but if that's the only way I will do it. I assume you don't have this issue with your 3rd party browser? Shrug

Well, if the quoted posts are *really* long then I still have to scroll to reply. Point is, I can scroll. I find that the difference between in useability between browsers is quite noticeable. I gave up on the stock browser the first day and I go back to it from time to time, but I find it to be useless. Hey, its free to try. That's the beauty of it all, you customize for your own purposes.

I just want the ability to scroll and I will be happy. Maybe I will give Firefox a try. I use Firefox on my PC's and like it, maybe I can even import my favorites/bookmarks to my phone. That would be nice.

My phone is barely a year old. When I get home I am going to try the Firefox browser and see if I can get around this issue.
