    So, I do almost all my tv.net-ing on my phone, and I use the keyboard app SwiftKey. In the past couple weeks, I've noticed my keyboard being super buggy. I finally narrowed it down to only this site, and only when using the rich text editor.

    Can you think of anything that could be causing this? Anything I can do about it? I've used SwiftKey for years and had no troubles before.

    Hmm maybe try deleting cash for the keyboard. Make sure not to delete data then anything saved with keyboard will be gone. Cash might fix it and you can also try clearing browser cash. You can also see if that problem stays on the website with build in keyboard, if it stays then it's general problem with rich text editor, if not then it's swiftkey having issues with it.

    I will test it later on my phone where I also use swiftkey and see if I have same problem.

    I've tried thit alrealr and itsit SwiSwiftKspecific.

    ... Forgot to turn off the rich text editor. I left the gibberish so you can see what the problem looks like.
    As I was saying, I've tried that already, and it's SwiftKey specific. But I hate the built-in keyboard.
    I'll see about trying the cash delete.

    Yeah, for me it was happening all the time, not just on the site. I've deleted SwiftKey and gone back to the google keyboard. It's not as bad as I remember it being.

    I rely too much on the arrow keys. I haven't found any other simple keyboard that has arrow keys like that.

    In other news, clearing the cache did not work.

    There's a SwiftKey beta release in the Google Play store. I found the problem to be worse with beta, but it was only on Facebook for me. Try switching and see what happens.

    This happened to me once before, a couple years ago. I thought it was SwiftKey, so my solution was to go back to the stock keyboard. I used that for about a year and then decided to try SwiftKey again, and it worked again, until now.

    I was already using the beta. I don't remember when I started using it. Probably when I tried again after my hiatus.
    I've switched back and forth between the beta and regular version with no real difference.

    My problem with this became much less pronounced when I switched to the regular version.

    I feel like maybe we should just start speaking in tongues and roll with it.

    I feel like this could be a Frivolous Fun thread: give me a sentence or two, and let's see how SwiftKey garbles it!

    Mine is okay. Are you in the beta now or the regular? I'm in the regular.

    Mine's still broken. :( I'll check if there's an update for it.
