Not much I can do about that, I suggest you raise a ticket with TT as on the forum its fine.
sorry.
https://support.tapatalk.com/

Or if you really know what you are doing ie you are a software dev., fix the issue an do a pull request here
https://github.com/tapatalk/tapatalk-smf2

Thanks. I downloaded the ZIP from github. Can't imagine why they didn't write it in COBOL  :o, but given they didn't...

I think my re-training needs to go quite a bit further before I can contribute to that. Consider it in the long-term to-do list.

cheers, Martin

Thanks for starting this thread!
I decided to install the Tapatalk app for the iPad since I saw it is supported for NSF.


Maybe somebody can help with something:
Until now I had email notifications for the topics of my choosing. Tapatalk recognizes this subscriptions and notifies me over the Notification Center in iOS as well.
With this app the emails kind of become obsolete since you get the notifications on iOS.


Does anybody know how to get notifications on the topics only on Tapatalk and not also over email?

Go to Profile / Modify Profile / Notifications.

Go to "For topics and boards I've requested notification on, notify me of:". Change this to "Nothing at all" or "Moderation only if I started the topic". (There's an argument, now that we have Tapatalk, that maybe there should be an option for "only moderation".)

(BTW, I'm assuming this won't stop Tapatalk notifications.)

Thanks! It worked perfectly. I'm happy to confirm your assumption.

So I installed tapatalk. Had no idea what to expect.

It's really not for me. Maybe because it's a Windows Phone, but it was really slow, fiddly and crashes a lot. Might explain why it has 2 out of 5 stars on the ratings, with people posting a similar experience to my own.

Much easier to fire up the phone's browser and do things that way.

Opposite of my experience with Android - faster, much easier to read, and completely stable.. Yeah - could be the Windows app doing that.

Yep, googling says the same. When I've saved up the pennies I'll be getting a better phone, so will re-try then.

There's an interesting issue with attachments through the iOS tapatalk client. I will attach a screenshot taken of this post (in progress).

When viewing this post in a regular browser, there is no image preview.

Since iPhone screenshots are in PNG format, I will also attach a JPG from the phone camera.

EDIT: Yep, as I expected, neither the JPG nor the PNG created a preview, although the download links work. I'm not sure if this is a Tapatalk generic issue, or the iOS client (v2.0.3), or something with this forum.

EDIT 2: It looks like at some point in the process, the PNG was converted to a JPG. (not necessarily a problem but interesting)

Looks like the forum classes attachments via this client as potentially unsafe.

There is a SMF feature that Re-encode potentially dangerous image attachments.

I had a Nokia 920 briefly & believe me I am afraid to see that Tapatalk on WP is completely unrepresentative of how it is on iOS & Android. The WP version still seems more like a Beta build than anything.

I noticed that my timestamps when accessing through Tapatalk were good but here were off. Appears you reset time to UTC? In any case, I reset that here and they are now good here, but way off in Tapatalk.

Also am not getting alerts in TT either anymore.

It looks like Tapatalk misinterprets double- quote followed by capital D as a smiley.

I believe the web version requires the smiley to be surrounded by spaces to avoid triggering false positives.

Is that something that might be fixable? Not a biggy once you know what's going on.

Edit: actually it looks like there are other combos which cause the same issue, but they do seem to include that capital D.

Cheers, Martin

Just a quick note re an issue I'm having with the EVA-25 thread via Tapatalk 4.3.4 on Galaxy Note 8 tablet.

All images appear as broken. See attached screenshot.

However, if I navigate to the EVA-24 thread, images appear fine. See second screenshot.

I'm wondering if there might be something different in the way the two threads were setup, which is causing them to be seen differently via Tapatalk?

cheers, Martin

I eventually reinstalled Tt to get image display back again.

I did notice in the EVA-25 thread, the post by Galactic Penguin, his images were .PNG and not .JPG, but the other two posts directly below were .JPG and still didn't show up.  That's really the only difference I can see in the two threads, I'm sure they were both set up the same, however.  Glad you got it working again.

I got to the stage where most threads were not showing me images.

I re-installed, then went back to a previously no-image thread, and did get images.


Not sure if it's related, but if I clicked on a web link in a post, it would take me to a tapatalk redirect address, but just stick there without redirecting to the correct target address.

cheers, Martin

Has anyone else had the issue of repeated threads?

When I go into the unread threads section I often get the same threads appear twice.
