    when I try and insert photos from my iPad using safari and chrome, the URL dialog pops up and then the browser hangs so I have to manually type in the img tags, after restarting the browser app. This started a few weeks ago and I thought it may have been caught by someone else but it hasn't yet and it is getting to be a real pita.

    I have tapatalk, I just don't like it. I would prefer if the website bug was fixed for iPads as I think the issue is in the UI code. It prevents any keyboard/browser input when the URL dialog pops up.

    Is this an issue just on MASA? or is it a generic IPAD issue?

    Are you uploading using the attachment or photo album?

    Above pic added via attachment.

    How big is the picture? I know at one time there were issues with the size of the pic. Not sure if that is still the case.

    It used to work ok, might have stopped with an iOS update. It hangs the moment I click the image button, before I can insert the URL so unless it have some cool psychic ability it cannot be due to the size of the image ;)

    Attachment works. You can see the symptom here, no input accepted.

    Ok it seems like it is my pet hate cloudflare.

    If I try and post connected via wifi it fails. If I post via 3G all is good.

    Correction re tested. it is intermittent on wifi. Typical of cloudflare

    The paper clip works hence me being able to show you what happens by attaching a screenshot. The problem occurs with inserting an image, the picture of joe's mountain.

    It hangs the moment I click the image button. Like the button right above where I am typing now. It has nothing to do with the photo gallery.

    Ahaaaa.... you are using the little yellow icon with two mountains. Yes I get that same pop up box and it does the same on iPad and my laptop that is running IE

    Try the upload icon that looks like a picture with the green arrow.

    Else upload to photo album and then use the insert just below the smilies.

    I find it easier to link photos from my google account but I guess I will have to upload attachments from now on, oh well.
