When using my Kindle Fire, I can only post in the subject line of the PBS forums. I can't post in the text box. Any suggestions?

Isn't that a common characteristic of posting from an android device? I'll try mine in a minute.

Yes same with my fire, no keyboard in the text box.

To post from my Nook Color or little tablet computer, I have to use the Dolphin browser to type in the text box and not just the subject line.

The one thing I find with the Dolphin browser is that paragraphs are impossible.  Even if you make paragraphs, they don't turn out that way.

Although, this may just be a tablet computer thing.  I see people posting from their Ipads that apologize for the lack of paragraphs because they can't do them either.
