    When ever I try to edit a large text field, my iPod Touch will not edit it. Here is an example:

    Lets say I'm starting a new thread on a forum. I can edit the title easily, and add tags etc. But when I go to edit the main body it will not select the text field. Sometimes it will work if I chose HTML mode, but that is only if I'm lucky. Are there any was to fix this?

    Hold your finger and then scroll down, it's tricky but works. Just tap to edit then hold and scroll to bottom.

    You can edit an entire paragraph by tapping the body 4 times.

    If that helps.

    When I am using my iPad I have to hit a little HTML button on the top right of the text box then I can type, should be the same.

    I want to be able to use rich text not HTML. I just noticed that my iPod works fine on this site, I wonder why it does not work on other sites?
