Huggs mentioned in one of the threads below that she could see replies on her iphone 5 and mini ipad, but coudn't log in, or maybe not post a comment.  I went ahead and got onto my ipad, which I did just update the OIS to the current one.  I had to fiddle iwth it a bit, and this may not make sense, but I finally got it to actually log me in and I can post and reply to posts now in quick reply.  I didn't try regular reply, I didn't want to press my luck, I was just so excited to be able to post and see replies period.  But here is what i did:

 I used safari.  I tried the first time to post a reply, it asked me to log in.  Then it told me I was not authorized to post a comment, and the screen went weird, so I couldn't even see posts, I went to the top where it showed the board links again and went to the main board again, then went to a particular thread again, hit reply, it again asked me to log into my account, I did it again and then it took me to an "add a comment" screen, but there was no space to actually add a comment.  I hit the link above again to go back to the main thread, and that time I was logged in and it gave me the choice to quick reply or reply.  I was able to use the quick reply and post a comment!!!  If you can understand all of that, go ahead and try it on your ipad, it may take a few tries, but patient, but see if it works for you and let me know. 

I then went and tred it on Terra next which is usually the browser I would always keep myself logged into ivillage on in my ipad.  I pulled up a blank screen and went to the message boards.  It already had me logged in and let me post a reply to a thead right away with no problems at all.  Like I said, you may have to fiddle with it a little bit, but I was so happy it let me in after a few tries!

I was just able to post a reply from my phone using quick reply and I can see replies, so that's a big relief.  I'm going to try regular reply next, but it doesn't matter to me which way I use it.

Now I wish there was a way to get back to the board after you reply.  The breadcrumb trail at the top runs out before it hits my board name for me.

Do I dare try to edit my preferences???

I still can't do any editing under preferences at all. I have tried on the regular computer, but not on the ipad. I figure if I can't on the regular computer, I'm not even going to try on the mobile version.

"Time Passes" totally made me chuckle! I was waiting with baited breath.Smile  SO glad to hear a couple of you are now able to see replies on mobile!
