    When I view HP on my BB, some of the stuff is clickable, other stuff is not.  Example:  I can click "my account" and "my profile" etc., off the top list; I can even click the little check mark box to "remember my password" when I log in.  However, I cannot click to approve a comment.  Also, when I click to, say, reorder my hub stats page to view by page view column or any of those columns, it will allow me to click, but all it does is reload the page without actually showing the prioritized list I wanted.

    I realize accomodating Blackberries is not probably a priority thing for HP, but I was just wondering if it's in the works, or, if the powers that be knew there was an issue at all.  Maybe it's an easy fix.

    Shadesbreath hubpages is about to release hubpages mobile application soon. I guess that would solve all your problems which you are currently facing. For more information read this thread.

    By your description of what can be clicked and what can not be clicked it sounds like that text hyperlinks are clickable, but buttons are not.

    Can you click on the Submit button when you make a post in the forum?

      I can click on "reply" but it just reloads the forum page.  Don't actually get the message window to type in, so, I can't make a post at all.

        So far my theory is holding together.

        A hyperlink, when moused over, will show the destination URL on the bottom left of your browser window (not sure why it reloads and doesn't go to the post page, must be another BB conflict). A button when moused over, won't show anything, because it works a little differently.

        Though none of what I've said will help solve the problem. Just why some 'buttons' work and why others don't. smile

          Well, I hope they fix it.  I would like to be able to access HP in waiting rooms and other venues of boredom.

    We haven't done any work to support the blackberry.  We recently looked at building an HP application just for it, but it turns out their platform is going to go through some major changes, so we decided to wait on it for now.  But, the good news is there will be a mobile version of HP in the not so distant future.  The first version will be pretty barebones, but we will add to it quickly.  The first device we will support is the Iphone, and the second is the android.
