    How Do You Post To These Forums Using A Nook HD+ ?

    wildb

      I have tried using the Chrome,Dolphin and the Puffin browser(full paid version) to post here.

       

      Chrome will not allow me  log in. Dolphin will not allow me to quote replies or spell check and Puffin almost works unless I need to go back and correct anything I typed. It wont allow me to go to the end after I correct a typing error so I can pick up where I left off.

       

      What browser do any of you use and if it's one of these is there some kind of settings that I'm missing?

       

      Seems crazy that this site doesn't fully support use through one of it's own devices and makes me turn on my computer just to post here.

          I've posted to these boards on an HD+ using Dolphin and maybe Opera. Can't say I've tried to post with Chrome or Puffin, tho I have both on my device. I tend to use a Bluetooth keyboard, though, so that might make a difference! :smileyhappy:

            In Dolphin >Settings>User Agent>Desktop will enable quoting & spell check.

              I'm using Puffin to compose this on my HD+. I have touched back in the middle of a sentence, made a correction and touched at the end of where I was. 

               

              I will say, though, Puffin requires very exact touching. I am constantly having to touch the screen several times to get the cursor where it needs to be, unlike with other browsers. So touching at the end of a sentence can take several attempts. Pinch-zooming the screen helps.

                I'm posting this through Chrome on my HD. I don't know of any particular setting I've made. I do use another keyboard (SwiftKey) but that shouldn't make a difference.

                  Using Boat Browser to post with no problems. Also use it for Amazon Instant Videos. Go to browser.

                    Oops...  Last post was on iPad 2 using Perfect Browser.  This one am using Boat Browser on HD+.  Works fine too.

                      WOW,

                      All I can say is thank you to everyone that replied here.

                       

                      First off I cleared my data,cache,history,etc. in chrome and was finally able to log in. Found the request desktop setting and it works. Using it now to post this.

                       

                      I opened Dolphin and turned on the desktop setting there and it also appears it will work as well.

                       

                      Next opened Puffin but couldn't find any settings to fix the issue I was having getting back to the end of my typing after going back to fix a mistake. I did however change my keyboard back to the standard nook version from Big Button Standard keyboard I was using and for whatever reason it allowed me to see more of what I'm typing. I am able to reposition the cursor now after a few tries.

                       

                      I am starting to play around with the built in mouse in Puffin and it might be the answer for cursor positioning. Seems pretty neat at least.

                       

                      I will look into Boat (going by memory)since I can't look at the entire thread while posting this. But seems all of my issues are fixed.

                       

                      I defantly have a lot to learn about tablet browsers and tablets in general but its good to know there are people out there that do know it and are willing to help.

                       

                      Thank you all again,
