Another vote for leaving Tapatalk support on this forum. I use it every day to track just the forums I have an interest in.

A problem is that Tapatalk keeps re-activating that setting automatically from time to time and it scraps it from what you see yourself so usually you don't even notice you posted this. Plus, you then need to EDIT the post to remove it.

Ha! Wow, that's so poor of them.

Anyone had any success in talking with that company? I don't want this place covered in "Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk". I've even noticed one person PMing me, had that as a link at the bottom of his message and that showed me all the places he was using tapatalk, which I doubt he opted into it (based on some of the places linked ;D)

Won't be getting rid of it until we have a good alternative, but yeah, people using need to edit it out of their posts or find a way to remove it via settings each time they force it on again. People complaining to me think NSF is adding it to posts.

I'm having an issue with images loading. I have checked settings etc and they should be loading. Anyone else been having this issue?

By the way, I'm just having a moan. Nothing will be "removed" unless we have something better. For the meantime, I just want people using this to get rid of that silly message. That will ease the complaints I have to deal with per people seeing it.

For the interim, imagine me as Dustin Hoffman in Rain Man reviewing K-Mart.

"Tapatalk sucks". ;D

Well, I agree Tapatalk kind of sucks in many things but it's still quite convenient if you can browse outside Safari since at least on iOS it lets you open temporary web views for images and all.

Even goes so far that I once considered writing an own app based on their plugin (they can't claim it's their interface because it's you hosting it not them).
If I just found a supplier for those 48h days....

It's easy to remove the signature they usually only reactivate it on major updates so providing you keep that in mind you can usually successfully keep the option turned off.

I've had the same problem with pictures as well.  I thought maybe it was just the larger ones, but even regular pictures don't seem to display properly.

Has anyone else had the following error in TT when trying to access L2 content for the last few days?

just a minor niggle with the site's tapatalk support - it seems to use the old logo for the site thumbnail. I tried unsubscribing/resubscribing but it stays the same...

I don't think directly. You need to right click on the post, select web view (make sure you're signed on in the web view), and like it from there. One thing I also do is from the web view scroll all the way to the bottom and set it to desktop formatting instead of mobile. Mobile web view is really annoying to work with (IMO). Once you set it to the desktop version it pretty much stays defaulted to that view from then on.

Good to know I couldn't find "Like" because it's not there. If by "right click" using Tapatalk on a phone you meant the mini-options button at the top right of each post, I don't have a web view option there, but at the bottom right of the whole page is a "Full site" button which took me to web view. I like the larger view of posts on Tapatalk, but I consider liking posts to be a significant part of the spirit of the threads, so will stay with web view. Thx Hinbos! :)

LOL - that's what I get for posting from my desktop.


What I was meaning to saw (at least from an iOS device) is, from the post you want to like, tap the screen to bring up a context menu. Should say something to the effect of, Quote | Share | Report | More


Click More and two more options slide up from thee bottom, Multi-Quote (hate it!) and Web View.


That Web View will bring with to the thread, scrolled to the post. From there you can like the post. Just hit the Done in the upper left of the screen to return to Tapatalk.


I'm going to like your post right now...
