Have to do some quick site maintenance today. Site downtime probably less than 5 minutes... unless I break something :)

LOL ok well maybe not so fast. Nice time for my Internet Service Provider to decide they were going to do some network work as well... right while I was in the midst of uploading files :)

While I’m mentioning it, too, is there any chance the images in the viewer can be brought to the front of the bottom banner, or be scaled differently so the full image is within view above the bottom banner? Now to click on an image, usually most or all of the pot is concealed by the bottom banner. Thanks Greg.

Hey @Bonsai Nut. When I’m typing on my iPad, suddenly, the keyboard covers the visible text field so I can’t see what I’m typing now...?

I believe that's a browser scale issue and doesn't have anything to do with the site. For example, there is nothing I can do to change the scale of your virtual keyboard.

Do you have a link for that image? Or just a description? I want to make sure that I test that exact image...

Correct, but the site used to scroll up until I could see what I’m typing, and in the last couple days, it has stopped this. I haven’t updated my IOS. When I’m typing, this is what I see:

I can't recreate the problem. Even when I resize the UI, the banner at the bottom gets larger or smaller but is never truncated. I'll have to break out a couple of different tablets...
I’m using last year’s iPad, and IOS 11.2.5.

Clicked on the little 3x3 (lower right)?
Clicking; tapping on the little image brings up another banner that obscures even more of the image.

However, what is really bad is the page not auto-scrolling so I can see the words I’m typing. Since iPads have very few settings, surely I can’t be the only one whose keyboard now obscures the typing field? This is driving me nuts.

I see what you mean. The same thing happens on Win10 in Chrome.

The U British Columbia has a hort site that runs on the same Xenforo package and it behaves the same way.

I guess it may be a common browser issue as it doesn't seem to happen in MS Edge browser.

My Guy on YouTube Estimation Ceramics...

His guy...Nu Two Times...does tech reviews..
One on pretty cool downloadable keyboards.

Good guys to Support and follow!

Anyway...I was having that problem upon the change ...but no longer, and I didn't change anything.

It is a bit hard to grab some screen that I can scroll up to view pictures again while typing...hitting BOLD on accident more.
