I have a Samsung tablet running Android 4.0.4 and a Galaxy Note 2 running Android 4.4.2 which I use when in Spain to avoid lugging a laptop over there.

However, although I can view Eye on Spain on my Android devices neither of them will allow me to reply to posts using them. Has anybody else had problems or are the administrators aware of the problem.

Thanks for your help. I was logged in. I am not sure about the cookies setting. 

But I have just had a Eureka moment. On my tablet and phone I usually use the Opera Mini browser to reduce data usage. However after reading your reply I thought I would try looking at the site using Chrome and as you can see from this post the problem has been resolved. 

Thanks for inspiring me.

I use an iPad & find I sometimes experience problems doing certain tasks. I use Safari as my main browser, Chrome is my 2nd option if Safari doesn't seem to let me do/see something then, if all else fails I use Puffin browser

For example I blog on EOS for charities for rescued dogs in Spain including the one in my signature & I need to add embed codes for any Youtube videos the charity makes so they display on the blog. I've found I can only access the code from Puffin. 

I don't know if the above has any bearing on the question but it may help someone.

Hi there!

To be able to reply to a post or publish a blog post you will need to make sure you have your web browser set to "DESKTOP MODE (vista escritorio) " otherwise the text editor will not appear.

Once the txt editor is visible you should be home sailing!


if you have any further problems just pm me

Hi there, we have managed to update the site over the past few days and clear up this problem. Now, even if you do not select desktop mode a simple text box will appear enabling you to write simple text. However if you want the fully loaded text editor you will need to move the "desktop mode" on your mobile device.

Thanks very much for your help with this problem. I had got round it by using my chrome browser but just to show your update has worked I am posting this using the Opera Mini browser.
