Hello, here are some changes as of late:
  • Tapatalk (mobile) support updated from 1.7.0 to 1.8.1
  • Litespeed (main web server) updated and in service.
  • Upgraded PHP to the new 5.5 branch
  • You can embed YouTube videos into your profile once again.
  • Media Section code was updated.

Forward looking changes:
  • We hope to render user fields for computer specifications directly into the posts once again.
  • We are looking at bringing back the Original Poster (OP) designation on posts.
  • If possible, we will once again try to get the OS and browser when you post to the site to display it on the post (this will take awhile)
  • "Best Answer" as an option in some forums may become available.

  • The site theme has obviously changed. We are now using responsive design for multiple devices. This includes, but is not limited to tablets, phones, and desktops. We will continue to improve site styling and theme in this area.
  • We are working on getting you great content, and will try to feature such on the website as much as possible.
Thanks for your support.

Let me be the first to complain. I don't like the full screen only option. Other than that, it's OK for me.

You might find the test theme (1.0.1) under the Style Chooser to be more accommodating. It is still the same width (fluid), but isn't as cluttered. That one is still very much under development for now.

You're missing the point...I don't like the wide width view, where it takes up the whole screen. I preferred the narrow width version. The only theme options are both wide width and one is a test theme. It's no biggy, but I did prefer the narrow look.

I like the new outlook. I think it's an improvement. Being the sentimental character I am, I do miss the "Status" with my Avatar. I would just love to have Changing diapers in there. Hope it's not distasteful. :rolleyes:

You have my support.

  • PHP has been updated to 5.4.20
Mobile Apps On The Way!
  • A process has been started to update the mobile app for Android OS. Our data shows that a lot of people are downloading the app, but are unable to get it to work, because of our site merger and changing of platforms. We have a release build with replacement software, but because the software is drastically different, internal changes are being made to upload the .APK's to Google Play.
  • The publication of a mobile app for iOS is in the works and has reached a stage where publication is almost possible, absent digital signing and review.
  • These apps are custom branded and developed primarily by Tapatalk, with creative input and design on our end, and will remain available free of charge to the general public. The Android app, at least, should be available quite soon. We hope to be able to provide this as an update to those who have already downloaded it. There will actually be two versions, depending on your device. One will work with Android OS 4.0 and above, and the other will continue to work with legacy devices that do not have the ICS update.
