I own a Lumia 920. I was not able to leave comment/post on this forum (wpcentral) right off my phone. The on-screen keyboard used to appear and then disappear after one second. I tried with both Desktop and Mobile modes ( under options) , but still the same.
Until I found a workaround to this issue and thought let's share it out here as it might help someone out there.
1- Download Board Express app (free)
2- In the Search box, type in "wpcentral"
3- Open "wpcentral"
4- Select "OK"
5- Swipe to "Messages" section
6- Select " Register"
7- Select "OK"
8- For the first time, log in with your gmail, microsoft, .. account as prompted
9- You will land on the desktop mode of wpcentral website ( the very same mode you get on your laptop/PC )
10- As of here you can browse the wpcentral website as if you were on your laptop/PC. You can read and leave posts without any problem with on-screen keyboard disappearing
Important 1/2: Do NOT use the " Add a Tile to the Homescreen" option. If you do, everytime you select "Messages", it gets you a faliure message and closes the app.
Important 2/2: You should swipe to "Messages" and select "Register" EVERYTIME you open Board Express app. ( eventhough you already logged in previously. Good thing is after the first time loging in, you will be logged in automatically and would not need to actually enter you ID and Password again)
It works for me, hope it does the same for you.
