Upgrade to Chess.com Premium!

TinyMCE and IOS 5

    I recently upgraded to IOS 5 on my iPad, and one of the things I was really looking forward was the ability to finally be able to utilize the full feature-set of the TinyMCE editor currently available to my Windows machines when posting in the forums.

    To my disappointment, the controls are still hidden as soon as it detects that I'm using an iPad.

    I can only assume that in order to remedy this, chess.com will need to update their version of the TinyMCE editor to the latest one, which is known to play nice with Safari on IOS 5.

    Are there any plans to do this?  My hope is that in addition to being able to post richer content, we'll be able to do away with the garbled and all but indecipherable posts that are the result of people using the "Quote" feature when posting via an Apple device. 

    Any insight from staff into estimated time-lines for this would be much appreciated, and feedback (i.e. support) from the growing user-base that is increasingly accessing chess.com via mobile devices is also welcome.

    For example -- and that's without me trying to find a place to add my comment to the quote.  Nested quotes end up completely indecipherable.

    Thanks for the quick response Erik -- any idea when we might expect it?

    Yeah, that's what I do, but other's don't and it makes the reading experience cumbersome to impossible.

    Workaround = don't read.

    Well, you can, it just jumps to the top of the page every time you click one of the buttons.

    I've taken to hitting the "P" and scrolling back to the board as quickly as I can to watch the game play out.

    What happened to this?  It worked beautifully, yet ever-so-breifly after the site update.

    The only thing I get is the text box into which I can type my posts.  The toolbar dissapeared some time back after breifly being available.

    The Safari crashing has stopped -- were the two by any chance related?

    i don't think so :)

    Ok, well if it were a choice between the two, current state is definitely preferable.  I did like the ability to better format my posts while using my iPad though.

    Thanks for the responses erik.

    OK, how about for iOS6.  I should at least get something as compensation for crippling my maps.

    So cumbersome, though.
