Seems the link to the forums I’m the app doesn’t work. I may have to figure out how to fix it. Does the new vbulletin have a mobile api to tie into yet?

Initial impressions in terms of looks, I think it looks okay, but I am not a fan of the navigation and functionality

Maybe it is how I was used to the old forum, but a number of things don't seem to function the way they did in the old forum and I am not a fan of how they now work

Biggest thing I am not a fan of is the new posts function as it shows every thread regardless of whether it has been read or not
For example, I am not interested in the marketplace forum, so in the old forum whenever there were a load of posts showing in the new posts function I would go to the forum and mark it as read and then those threads would no longer appear when I clicked on the new posts option, but now it seems that they will always appear in the list and have to be scrolled past

So when you weren't logged in you couldn't read the main page from the web? If so, what browser were you using?
All I could see was basic black and white text, with some being blue underlined clickable links on a white background. No pictures, and ad boxes said “invalid URL”.

This morning, the home page displayed a yellow box saying the URL was invalid. Same box appeared after sign-in. No other info other than the banner was displayed.

Using iOS.

Can you provide a screenshot?

Tapatalk has weird issues for me but the mobile web version of the site looks awesome. My PM's aren't working in Tapatalk but that app has had so many issues over the last year that I'm looking forward to the dedicated mobile app. (I only started using Tapatalk due to ease of updates and picture uploads at events at the advice of others).

I'm just happy we finally get to see the death of Tapatalk.

Its change, no one likes change initially even when its necessary, but in the end it always works out. I'm already acclimating to things here, and I think once the app rolls out we see even more comfort.

Agreed, tapatalk has been spotty at best, I'm ready to move on

I am really digging the clean look of the desktop site. Just getting used to where everything is. I think it looks a lot better personally. Mobile is iffy on the navigation at this point. But, knowing that a mobile app is the end game, I am not too concerned about it.

I just hope the mobile app is better than the previous THP app that was released and is supported on the Android platform as much as iOS

FWIW I use Tapatalk for dozens of other internet forums and THP was the only that I saw the majority of the issues people discussed. I for one will miss the functioning Tapatalk version.

Vanilla forums with virtually no plugins will have very few issues with Tapatalk. Ones like ours, with a ton of functionality and privacy built in, will have the same issues that our members saw. Both of these things are areas where we believe our forum excels and will continue to implement to give the end user a more enjoyable experience.

Appears to be an issue with apostrophes and quotation marks being replaced with different characters. They're showing up as squares on my screen. I'm on a Surface Pro 4 running Windows 10 and accessing via Google Chrome.

"test quotation marks"

5150's test apostrophe

Funny, didn't see the issue this time. Perhaps it's fixed, or intermittent.

Maybe I missed this elsewhere, but what drives the reputation rating?

It’ll take some getting used to, but t I’m really looking forward to seeing the final product after all the kinks are worked out. I always used Safari because I never cared for Tapa so this is quite a different look for me. Onward and upward though.

If you are using Safari, you will get used to the new spacing pretty quickly. And you will really like what is coming.

I actually switched to safari this morning while the kids were eating breakfast and it helped me visually a good deal.

The fact that you pulled off a major upgrade and had the new place anything close to resembling the old place in both looks and functionality is a major win, and a lot more than some other places can say recently.

Does anyone else suddenly have a ton of subscriptions? It looks like I now have 580 subscriptions and I definitely haven't subscribed to that many threads. I thought you might want to know about that.
Yeah, I appear to be subscribed to many threads that I posted in prior to the upgrade but did not subscribe to.

I believe it is tied into previous Thanks and now likes.
Where can I find the tally of previous thanks (now likes)? I ask because:
  • I've been a member since 2015 with over 2,000 posts and at least a decent amount of thanks, and
  • My reputation bar is at zero
I'm not worried about my reputation bar - instead I'm wondering if that functionality is working correctly.

Been in project management in the software dev space for about, oh, 20 years now, so I tend to take an interest in deployments like this. Cheers!

I've scanned the pages and may have have overlooked it but is multi-quote hidden somewhere?
