DNN Form and List: Submit button not working on mobile devices

    I have an issue that seems strange to me.

    I have 2 form and list forms on a page.


    One of the forms works on mobile devices.

    The other form, when hitting submit, changes focus to the search bar.  This ONLY happens on mobile devices.  When I shrink the viewport on the desktop to look like a mobile device, it still works fine.  One of the submit buttons just loses focus on mobile touchscreens.

    Does it have something to do with a touch event rather than a mouse-click event?

    I can't "firebug" it to troubleshoot because it works fine on the desktop browsers.

      Hitting the submit button or clicking enter on the mobile keyboard?

        I figured it out!
        The forms in question were copies of forms from other pages that seemed to be working.

        It was a permissions issue to create/submit record.  Had to put a check in "All Users"

        That's why it would work when I was testing, logged in as admin, on the desktop.

        I guess the form copies did not copy the submit permissions...

          For future reference, you can :) You can remote debug Chrome on an Android device, from Chrome on the desktop. Similarly, you can remote debug Safari on iOS devices from Safari on a Mac. You need to attach the mobile device using a USB cable, and then get the dev tools to talk to it - works really well.
