The platform, Xenforo that this forum now runs on is very mobile responsive. As such, at least not initially, we are not planning to install Tapatalk on it. We'd prefer to wait to hear feedback from mobile users on their experience accessing the forum from the web browsers on their mobile devices.

Note that if you open Chrome or Firefox on your phones and open this website, you can then click the "..." menu to install it to the desktop. In other words, in Firefox you can click "Install" and it will add an icon to your home screen. In Chrome you can click to "Install app" and it will also add an icon.
This basically lets you treat the forum as its own app space, rather than a tab in the browser.

It can also be added to your “Home Screen” on your iPhone as well

I am a 100% mobile user, and prefer TapaTalk for speed of browsing and monitoring this site. I whole-heartily hope this discontinuation of it is reconsidered, and I can continue to monitor the site like I was use to doing. Lance.

Try the forum on your phone. You may decide that TapaTalk really is a pain to use. (And yes, I’ve used it).

I felt the same way until I loaded the new format on my phone and played with it for a bit. It is working great. I have now uninstall the Tapatalk App from my phone.

Thank you...I'm familiar with both. I've used TT for close to 10 years, and been on the Xenforo platform 2 years with admin/mod privileges for 6 sites I caretake. Personally, TT is much quicker for multiple daily mobile viewings for 9 sites viewing as this was 1 of them....not sure why it is a pain to use. TT viewing of multiple sites is the same viewing format, rather than 9 slightly different looks.

Just putting my vote in for TT reinstatement with no complaints on what Admins decide. I do remember MANY members posting with 1, 2, or all 3 TT insignias on the old platform.

Take care everyone, and mobile safely.

Lance - thanks for weighing in. I appreciate your experience based feedback. I am not 100% opposed to TT. The level of access we have to give them, I just question that. That's what I'm wrestling with.

Thank you Jim...I didn't realize the amount of access required by TT may have been the issue..😊

Elizabeth - I didn't see any context posted around your links. Are you suggesting that Tapatalk is the culprit on those forums?

This happened to me a few months ago and I found out how, and why, it happened. If you are NOT the site's owner and DO have head-office Admins above your level (as I do), shoot me a Conversation.....I don't wish to muck-up this TT thread tho.

The site owners that I monitor for handles 1600+ forum sites and word is to migrate every one of them to Xenforo from VB, so I'm glad that this site stepped this direction also!👍

If you go to the link, one of XF owners, the one at The AdminZone is from the XF board. Both mention some of the issues they’ve run into. Apparently TT worked on vB because it wasn‘t (and still isn’t) mobile friendly. TT will break forum code.

Tapatalk is back!

We decided to re-add Tapatalk. So if you prefer to read this forum and others from a mobile device using Tapatalk, go for it!

Yeah - I didn't know I could tweak the logo or the background image until I was told there was a motorhome stock image there. Oops :)
