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.

Same happens here.
Moreover, in Forum submenu, often I have several areas in bold, but clicking on them, I cannot see any new message. Refreshing with the proper button doesn't cure the problem.

I reported this upthread.

It's not an issue with the forum software apparently,  so needs fixing in the Tt client.

Cheers, Martin

It happens if you load another page full of threads and a new one has sprung to the top. Tapatalk doesn't re-load the first page and if the last threads on he first page have moved to the second page in the meantime, they appear twice.

In my case, I was seeing two repeats of the same thread right next to each other, partway down the list of topics. This was not with Tt v4.

I'm using Tt v4 on my new tablet, and can't say I've noticed this issue on that. (BTW, lots of people not happy with that version, so upgrade at your peril. Google it first.)

Quick query re quoted text in Tt.

Tt has stopped highlighting quotes for me, so nothing differentiates that from the following response. Is anyone else seeing this?

Quotes still format as expected on other fora, eg XDA Developers.

I suspect the issue is in identifying quotes rather than quote formatting, since the "copy post" function now also copies the original quote, and it didn't do that previously. (That has it's own benefits, but I'll not go there).

Cheers, Martin

Noticed the same & can confirm it only appears to happen on this forum.

I happen to be active on the other forum (xda) they run other forum software, only suggestion I can make is to contact the tt devs, its for them to address these issues....

ps we do run the latest release of the plugin (3.9.2)

Is it my or did this only arise with the last Tapatalk update?

I'm using Tapatalk and in many cases quotes are broken. The oute most opening quote is replaced with a "dummyquote" word.

Tapatalk (on Android) has just released a new version that has absolutely destroyed its functionality. It's just absolutely shocking.

This has been my go-to way to come to NSF up to now. Some frustrations, but generally a great experience on a tablet. Then, *poof* - gone.

Ugh.

Martin

PS for anyone who hasn't yet received the update on their Android, you can turn off auto Updates in the Play Store. Tap the three bars, My Apps, select Tapatalk, tap the three dots, and un-tick the auto-update option.

I concur. The "enhancement" of the Home screen in TT is devastating. 60% of the screen space is wasted, the dimming of read threads is gone and "Show unread only" option locks the scroll. What were they thinking?

I'm having a little play with this today:-
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ape.apps.forumfiend

My feedback, and how to contact the developer:-
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2733755&page=7

It's not quite a daily driver replacement as yet, but might not take a lot of further enhancement to get there.

I haven't tried posting yet, but apparently it offers BBcode support, where Tapatalk doesn't.

cheers, Martin

:-(

In theory, it's possible to "sideload" one of the older versions.

Not really recommended (need to turn off a security feature on the device, plus download software from an unofficial location), but I may end up doing that anyway myself.

Luckily on iOS it's far more usable than on Android. Wish they would stop playing around with it for no good reason on Android.

See post #51, but if you try it make sure to update the settings to stop it adding its sig on the bottom of anything you post.

It's a new app, and I don't think it's quite ready for prime-time yet - crashes a little too often for comfort, and missing some features I personally need in a daily driver. But it's promising.

cheers, Martin

They just updated the iOS version with what sounds like the same interface changes that hit the Android users up thread.

No more "just show subscribed threads with unread messages" capability. (Or at least I can't find it.) I am back on the web interface and filtering out all the noise using my Mark II eyeball.

IIRC, the Android version lets you select the Subscribed view, then toggle All or Unread via a menu option. However, this view only shows the top few few threads unless "all" is selected (it only allows scrolling under "all").

Make sure to put up a negative review on the App Store.

cheers, Martin

I can confirm the apps on both OS types are identical.
