    This must be covered somewhere, unless I'm mistaken. Couldn't seem to find it, tho.

    Why can't I post to the forum with my iPhone? Or am I just not seeing how to do it? All I see at the bottom of a thread (where there would normally be a reply button) is a "download" icon that takes me to a tutorial on how to add a forum icon to my home screen.

    You need to choose the mobile skin in order to post and reply. It's called "iPhone Style". Select that instead of the normal forum skin and you'll be able to navigate more easily.

    (Look down at the bottom right of your screen from the forum Home screen to select.)

    Unfortunately, our parent company enforces a specific skin for iPhone/iPod Touch models that is read-only. There is an earlier skin which is a little more forgiving, and that's the one chscag has advised you to use.

    We do not enforce the mobile skin for the iPad.

    I would love to talk a bit about my frustration with this behavior, but unfortunately, it's out of my hands.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Yeah, I notice that I am unable to post with my iPhone, even with the mobile style chosen. Bummer.
    I am on a biker forum, which allows posts from mobile devices, but some features are lost...

    We've had many discussions regarding TapaTalk. For now it has been decided that it won't be used. There are several reasons why - mostly to do with their business model.
