    Apple OS Issue?

    When I post the forum doesn't see my paragraphs or spacing.It all comes out on one line? Can you tell me what I'm doing wrong or is it an iPad issue?Thanks

    The difference between a sailboat and a power boat? On a powerboat you rush to get somewhere. On a sailboat, you're already there.

    Tablet and smart phone operating systems may handle this formating stuff quite differently than a desktop OS like OSX does.
    My best guess.....

    Does the same thing posting from an iPhone; very annoying. Plus I don't think the "edit" function works with the iPhone; even more annoying...

    I'm planning on introducing a phone/tablet friendly app before the end of this year. I first need to finish this move to the new server, and then take care of some security issues before I can add the new features, however....

    Edit doesn't work

    I forgot about that one too. I can't go back and edit misspellings (I hate auto correct.....). Thanks for the site Sean!

    FWIW I meant no disrespect to the EricsonYachts.org site, which is awesome, by my comment. In fact, if the functionality of the site were to continue as is, I would be perfectly happy; just have to keep the iPhone thing in mind and be extra careful when posting from it...

    I have this problem on my computer as well. I'm running Windows 7 and IE 10. Any idea what might be going on there?
