Hey there
I am having alot of trouble trying to post from a mobile or IPod touch.

When I click on the form where you type up your post, nothing happens and it is slightly greyed out.

Is think a common thing or just my settings.

Thanks in advance.

The use of the TinyMCE editor and an overlaid frame via. JavaScript causes this issue - I have had to deal with this issue for a long time.

Disabling JavaScript allows you to use a normal text field - but also prevents the "compose reply" button from working.

My workaround: Load the reply page, and stop just after the text field appears.

Changing those buttons to standard form buttons is in our sight... No pun intended.

You can change your profile to no use the rich text editor - just uncheck a box there.

Is it possible to use some meta tags or JavaScript to filter out this for "other" devices? (like the iPhone/iPod and other mobiles)

I've tried to do this on my blog, but using CSS to hide the mceEditorContainer, but as the form uses the contents within this, then it thinks that there isn't any comment in the text field.
