    We'll look into that. Thanks for the suggestion, @zazan! For now, hopefully the mobile version will do the trick. :)

  • +1 for Tapatalk support ;)! We're looking forward to that!

    Thanks for the votes, everyone. It's on our list. :)

  • PS: The OLD forum is still listed in Tapatalk. At a minimum, you'll want to de-list it!

    No progress yet, we've been busy with Macworld and improving the current forums before we move to Tapatalk. I'll check to see if we can speed it up a bit.

    Hi guys,

    We're going to deactivate the old forums and tapatalk along with it. Unfortunately, it is not possible to use tapatalk with the hosted instance of Vanilla forum we're using.

    Can you guys let us know what you'd like to have from the tapatalk that's not in our forum here, so that we can pass it on to them and see if they can implement their own version.

    Thanks!

  • I don't really think you can "add something" to your forum that would satisfy the need for tapatalk. Most users here, the acrtive ones, are active in many forums. We manage those forums from our tapatalk apps from our mobile devices. I can tell you now, personally, I have tried using forums independtly before that were not available on tapatalk and i never stayed active.

    Without tapatalk suppoer you are going to have a much less active community. This change in forums seems to be a terrible move if it means not tapatalk support.

    Have you guys looked at adding this plugin to your forum? http://tapatalk.com/activate_tapatalk.php?plugin=van

    There is support for vanilla forums on tapatalk.

    Thanks for letting us know that it is mostly just an aggregation issue rather than a specific feature (or features).

    You are correct, the link you just posted again is the same Tapatalk plugin for Vanilla forums that you linked to above and the one to which we are referring. It is the one Mike was referencing when we wrote:

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to use tapatalk with the hosted instance of Vanilla forum we're using.

    We do sincerely hope that doesn't diminish your participation here, but we understand if it does. We'll keep an eye on this, but right now it simply is not possible to implement. :-/

    Please do let us know if there is anything else we can help with in the meantime. If there are any improvements we can make to the mobile interface, we'd appreciate knowing about them.

    Thanks so much!

  • I visit the forums 95% less than I did with Tapatalk.

    Reasons:

    1. Miss 'Topics' feature, where all unread items from all threads could be seen, so a quick look could be taken at what's interesting and what's less.
    2. Lack of quick navigation inside the forums and threads
    3. As I use Safari in Private mode, I have to sign in every time
    4. Even putting shortcut on the home screen didn't help visiting the forums as frequent as I did with Tapatalk.

    Usability downgraded very much. For me, at least.

    It's a pity because discussions are very interesting.

    Thanks guys, we'll pass them on to Vanilla forums and let them know that it is important to have the Tapatalk support.

  • woodenbrainwoodenbrain Junior Member

    Agreed. Thanks.

    Nice to see you around woodenbrain ;)

    I am still rocking OminGrowl.

  • woodenbrainwoodenbrain Junior Member

    thightower, sweet. I'm planning an overhaul soonish; problem is it's just me on everything, no big team. :) neither me nor at least 4 other people in my extended family could get by without 1Password, including my 90+ yr old grandmother, who uses it on her iPad. mutual back patting complete!

    That's awesome! We always love hearing about folks who make security a family affair. :)

  • Any progress on this? I never go on this dicussion site anymore and so I would love to know if there is any progress with tapatalk support so I can start being active again?

    I'm not aware of any progress that Vanilla Forums have made in this regard, but I will certainly make every attempt to follow up here if we receive any news from them.

  • I, also, would like to see this. I've not used tapatalk for this forum because I know it doesn't work (but want it to). I'd think loading the add-on for a hosted forum (like Vanilla) would either be easy or impossible (because of the shared nature of the code). Be nice to know which it is! :)

  • khadkhad Social Choreographer

    Team Member

    Yeah. It is not supported for hosted Vanilla Forums, but perhaps it will be in the future. It would be nice. :)

  • Have you contacted whoever hosts your forums and asked about using the plugin I posted above? It seems pretty straight forward, so perhaps they would be willing to install it.

    As Mike said back in the beginning of February, it is not possible to use Tapatalk with the hosted instance of Vanilla Forums we're using. The plugin works for individual installations of Vanilla Forums. We are not using such an instance.

    If this changes, we will post back here. :)

    @Safety, thanks for the heads up. Megan actually asked me about this, and I was the one who directed her to this thread. Nothing has changed from my post directly above yours or from what Megan already wrote in the new thread you started.

    As I said before, if this changes, we will post back here. :)

    I hope you have an awesome weekend and a great holiday!

    Cheers!
