Just thought I would pass on a message from one of my readers to do with HubPages. He's not happy because apparently you can't post comments on HubPages from an iPhone. Given the ubiquitous nature of the device, that might be good to fix,
Also, on a personal note, I notice that the new text input design whatsit misbehaves severely with Firefox. It puts spaces into the top of the text when you copy and paste and then messes with the layout. You can fix it once, but if you come back to that capsule again after fixing it, it once again double spaces every paragraph. Kind of niggly for those of us who don't use IE.
Other than that, all's awesome at HP
I know it's not a technical "official" fix, but what works for me with the new text capsule thingamahoosier is to copy my text over to notepad once I'm done in Word. Then, from notepad to the text capsule and I've not had any problems since.
The other thing you can do is go into the capsule, highlight everything and then change the format to paragraph style TWICE. I don't know why you have to do it twice, but that'll change it to the right setting and stop fiddling with the layout.
I don't know what kind of browser comes with an iPhone, but I have an iMac and the default browser that came with it is Safari, which isn't compatible with HubPages. Camino is a Mac browser that can be downloaded free and is pretty much the same as Firefox, only more geared to Macs. I can post comments here without any issue using Camino (when I'm on the Mac).
Hey, thanks for the tips guys I will definitely try them out and let my reader know too...
Interesting... I can't post comments on my blackberry, either... I can approve or deny them, just not post my own. Could just be a mobile thing.
