I've bit the bullet. As I don't use the site as much, I want you guys to have as much access to it as possible, so I've added TapaTalk back.

However, it things don't work correctly.....I won't support the investigation of the fault through TapaTalk, I'll simply be keeping the application updated.

I'll stick with straight from a browser, I don't do much in the way of browsing from my phone and don't have FB running on it except on the odd occasion.

I prefer the browser as well, especially on my Samsung S7 Edge, it's just as fast as using a desktop / laptop for browsing with.

Hi Matt,

The theme layout seems to have changed. Is this because of the Tapatalk addition ?
No, the theme has also been updated, and it's changed quite a lot of things (they added a load of new features), and the main forum node layout is now slightly different (some categories show 3 forums instead of 2 in a row).

Ahhh I see, that's a great deal. I'm with EE and have been since it was 1-2-1 (now that's going back). They wanted far too much money for the S6 and the 7 wasn't out.

Had they not offered the contract pay off, I would have just waited until October when I could have upgraded as part of my contract. It's a bloody good phone as well. Really impressed with it.

Yeah I've had Samsung's since I moved from HTC (they made the first SPV for Orange years back) after a number of years. As I said, the only reason I didn't go for the S6 was the lack of SD card support (I have a 64Gb card for work related stuff like time clock manuals etc.), which really put me off. Felt like they were heading along the IPhone route. Thing is I use my phone more than just for the basics, I use spreadsheet stuff, word stuff, calendar, PDF's, email etc.

So I've received the following from TapaTalk

Apple requiring HTTPS for all apps

Beginning January 1, 2017, Apple is requiring all apps to secure connections via HTTPS and certain other security requirements. These new requirements are called App Transport Security, or ATS. For more information, see TechCruch and/or Apple Developer

At least in the near term, Apple is expected to allow apps already approved in the App Store to remain there without being updated. However, as of Jan. 1 all new and revised apps submitted to Apple for approval will need to be ATS-compliant. To be ATS-Complaint, a sites must use HTTPS. Sites using HTTP will not be in compliance with ATS requirements. (So far, Google is not enforcing the HTTPS requirement for Android apps)

For any sites still using HTTP, we strongly recommend you upgrade to HTTPS as soon as possible. Upgrading your site to HTTPS is not difficult and your hosting provider may be able to help you with this. Security certificates are required for each of such sites, and this too can be obtained through your hosting company or elsewhere.

Once you update to HTTPS, you can login to Tapatalk>Sites>Site Settings and update your Forum URL.


For all Premium Tier customers, we will submit an update to be your iOS app to version 5.3 before December 15, so even sites still using HTTP will be updated.

While updating to HTTPS can be a bit of work, the use of HTTPS will help ensure a safer internet for everyone.

If you have any questions, please login to Tapatalk and submit a support ticket.
Now, HTTPS is still available, as I've installed a new SSL certificate, I'm just not forcing it. I'm going to do some testing with the site behind HTTPS again over the new few days, and will see how it goes.

76 posts made from TapaTalk since it was installed again back in August. I'm removing it again, because it's causing loads of issues on the back end of the site.
