    When im typing on the forum in the tread box in lanscape mode the keyboard takes up just over half the screen which is fine but the typing area disappears behind the keyboard no matter how many times I scroll the web page back up, thus I cant se what im typing? Any ideas im using standard keyboard and dolphin...

    Perhaps you might consider using an external usb keyboard if it seems to be a problem. Also, I find the ability to "float" the onscreen keyboard seems to work well for me.

    That's correct - if you enter the title, the suggested threads on the same subject pops up, it takes a short bit to settle down.

    You may also try going to portrait and then back to landscape, that sometimes fixes that.

    It doenst settle at all tho it does that all the time, I always could go to portrait but I shouldnt really have to especially on a site hat is very internet and technology based, is it the dolphin browser, the tab, the keyboard or the site thats at fault?

    This problem isnt restricted to this website, I have exactly the same problem on other forums. You try typing a reply and the screen automaticalky scrolls up to the top of the page so you cannot see what you are typing.

    yep, that's it wonder why, but one small fix (still shouldn't happen), is to start to type then touch the dialogue box again seems to stop it..
