So asking Tapatalk's tech support about Error 22340 probably wouldn't help?

Can people on various mobile devices please try visiting without tapatalk? I found a mod that changes the basic design to responsive, which I didn't know existed. It even works with our 'grasslands' variant. It ONLY works for Curve theme and grasslands curve.

Changing theme to Curve is 100% responsive and works on mobile. I'd like to hear feedback. We may be able to incorporate this with the green theme, it just takes some tweaking.

I have the Nokia 735 and Tapatalk is one of the few apps that's working perfectly for me.

Yess. I don't think we need tapatalk for mobile now. Try it out on mobile and see what I mean. I got the green theme working just now, may need to clear cache to make it work though!!!!

I'm THRILLED if this works for you all.

Tapatalk will continue to butcher stories of people who use the new inline attachments. Some of you will not need tapatalk at all, though I'll leave it in. I might figure out a way to make it not nag you to install it. But it depends if people petition me to leave it in ;)

@sdhoey @Magpie2012 Definitely want to hear if it's better in normal mobile browser. Clear cache, as I said.

I will clean up the top when I can too, right now it's horrible with the image of origin and donate button etc. not scaling. But it CAN be fixed.

@Carl I'm using my mobile browser and it's not going well. I can read posts but they are to the far left while the right is empty space. While on the stories board I can read the titles and who wrote them but not the last person to comment on each thread. The page is zoomed in too much and zooming out is no better.

@Nettlejuice does it go to where your avatar is centered at the top (ie, changed design) as opposed to the left so that the top is kind of crunched together? Makes me wonder if the browser cached the old version or something if it doesn't.

It should look like this:

If it does not, it makes me think it's a caching issue.

@Carl Yes, that's what it looks like and then everything squashes over to the left.

Mine looks like that, but when I go into stories it either freezes, takes forever to load or crashes my browser (and I went into a new story so there wasn't even a lot of images to load)

Then again I am using my cruddy BB 9720, so maybe that's the problem

Disabling the ad seems to make that go away?

Weird, as the ad is not even there for members.

@Carl I have no problem viewing this thread, it's all the other boards that seem to be 'messed up'.

@Carl

Ads may be turned off for members, but the ad spacers (if that makes sense) were there, and now they aren't since you turned them off.

@MrsFlynn @Carl probably a stupid question, but where do the ad spacers usually sit? I have a gap between the donate button and the start of a topic. Also, how can I access my profile and bookmarks and messages etc, the usual line of links above the main section is missing for me (I hope that made sense?)

@Magpie2012

Thank you for asking... I've been wanting to test the inline image attachment again. :)

Or it might be just under the Home menu.

It is very weird on that ad thing, because the box isn't even supposed to appear to members. So I may have to tweak that ad or do something differently.

I'll setup something on another server, an exact copy of the forum, and ask people to go there to test it across various devices. This is too buggy for a live server.

It may take quite some time, but it's an unexpected gift to be able to make the forum work for mobile without tapatalk being required.

For people on smaller screens, I'm looking into how to prevent scroll bars on attached images. They are not supposed to be there, and I didn't even know they were until MrsFlynn told me!

Hope that works, haven't added an image in forever. That is how it looked for me earlier, but now, it's just taking me to a zoomed out version of the PC site.

@Carl

I just figured that was normal for the ad spacers to be there even for members or I would have mentioned something sooner.

@Magpie2012  I've disabled the theme for now. I will do testing on another server and make some of those bugs disappear. We can't have no menu, stretched images. It was awful, but the actual page itself fit very nicely even on a small vertical screen. So I'm in, but it will take me time. I need to finish up some writing, then the Sims Pack will come. Hopefully I can fit it in somewhere there, but it is clear we will move on to a responsive design sometime in the next few months if I can make it happen. I have wanted that for a long time, you notice only a small portion use tapatalk, while 50% of our visitors are on mobile.

If anyone has problems and was here for the testing, clear cache as it has that responsive theme going and it is not meant to be active at the moment.

I got a bit excited here just to see what would happen. When I get a test site setup we will have an organized single-thread conversation heheh

Oh, my bad lol didn't realise when you said disabled that you meant the entire mobile theme thingie! I'm getting used to the browser, it's just annoying because if you zoom in for the text, you have to either zoom out or scroll for the images. I think I'll see whether Tapatalk is playing nice for now until we have the mobile theme up and running!
