UPDATE: The problem was solved by changing the user agent of Safari, following the instructions here: http://www.mphweb.com/en/blog/easily-set-user-agent-uiwebview I have a UIWebView which is adapted to a mobile style of a forum I have. In Safari, it looks and works great. However, inside my UIWebView there is a major problem. When quoting or editing a post, HTML is displayed inside of `BBcode`. Furthermore, posting code results in ignored line breaks. This problem will render my app completely unusable. The webview is loaded like this: PHP: //display the webview NSString *fullURL = @"http://www.mysite.com"; NSURL *url = [NSURL URLWithString:fullURL]; NSMutableURLRequest *requestObj = [NSMutableURLRequest requestWithURL:url]; [_webTest loadRequest:requestObj]; This is how it looks inside of mobile Safari (correctly) And finally, how it looks inside of `UIWebView` (incorrectly) I am completely clueless as to what would cause this behavior.
