    Using the CMS with iPad Link to this post

    It's time to resurrect this issue. With the release of iPad 2 and the fact that it's been about a year since anyone last talked about the CMS + iPads (at least, that's what my search turned up).

    Has anyone had any luck running the CMS flawlessly on the iPad lately? I don't own one myself, so I'm wondering.

    At first I gave up right away because I couldn't get TinyMCE to work consistently. Later I found I can at least edit some text - as long as I don't move the cursor while the keyboard is active, so: hide the keyboard then try to position the cursor in one go. Doable but no party.

    the CMS responds quickly, no problems there, and saving a page is no problem. Of course file uploads are not available. DOM seems to be working so far, haven't tried anything else so far, as I see this somewhat as a last resort...

    [EDIT] hey, I see the new year has already started up in NZ.. Here we still have some 10,5 hours to go... Have a good one SilverStripers, cheers!!!

    Just tried with the latest version of iOS (5.1) and SS 2.4.7 on a 1st gen iPad. I didn't do a full test but I could edit text in TinyMCE quite happily. Moving the cursor while the keypad was showing worked fine and I could save the resulting page. Everything 'just worked' so Apple must have been busy with fixes in that last update.

    This isn't a full test so I wouldn't be saying to clients its fully compatible with the iPad but certainly I'd say is quite usable with limitations e.g. no file upload. (but adding an image already in assets was OK.)
