    hey Ryan, 

    does the forum support any apps to make it easier to interact from a mobile device?

    apps such as tapatalk?

     

    thanks,

    I am not sure. Maybe someone can tell us if they use something specific. I actually have no idea what it takes to make that app work. I can look into it unless someone has a better app? I have been using my phone a lot lately and have not had any scaling issues or anything. Is there something specific that doesn’t work?

    Is this box a funny shape because of the dark-er style?

    Do you normally use the text version, instead of visual?

    I don’t think it’s because of the theme. I think it’s like that with the standard non-themed look, but the border isn’t visible and the surrounding area is the same color as the text block so it doesn’t stand out.  It’s only the “Text” editor.

    Yeah, I never use visual.

    I find it easier to use the app instead of loading a website in a browser and logging in and navigating.

    I can still use the browser, just though i’d ask.

    Tapatalk says there should be an option with most forum systems. You need to install a plugin and then do a setup on their page i believe.

    On firefox and chrome, if you bookmark the page, there’s an option to make a shortcut.

    Personally, I avoid installing as many apps. They each pose a strong security and privacy risk. Installing instagrsm means facebook knows where you go, etc.

    I get here by emails. I subscribe to almost everything and then have a gmail filter to sort them into a v1 folder and I go there when I want to spend sone time here.

    I did a quick search and tapatalk does not work on wordpress based sites, which is a very large number. I did not see any alternatives either. The apps see to be based on one type of forum phppress, etc.
