Can't use Tapatalk started from 2 days ago on my iPhone.
I 'm getting a "System Massage: Tapatalk Plugin is not activated in your forum".

One for Jason.

IIRC i have still seen Tapatalk adverts (and erased them) in messages newer than 2 days.

I urge everyone using talatalk to disable the advertisement they append to every message… they violate one of the forum’s rules.

Tapatalk is currently disabled. I will endeavor to re-enable it again in the future, but as Dave says, it seems to result in an ingress of ads from Tapatalk into the posts themselves. Their plugin requires constant updates, and their codebase is quite bloated and consumes server resources. Nontheless, I'll re-install it when the forum is again stable provided it doesn't have a significant impact on general load times for everyone else.

Hi Jason,

Can you advice for any other iOS based programs that can be used instead of Tapatalk?

I have a love-hate relationship with Tapatalk. It's main selling point is that it makes whatever forums that support it implicitly mobile-friendly. Unless I'm missing something, diyAudio is hard to use on a mobile device. If there was a theme or other app or some other way by which diyAudio could be as mobile-optimized as it is under Tapatalk, then I wouldn't think twice about moving to something else (I'm on Android by the way).

But in all other respects, Tapatalk sucks. They increasingly pollute the real content with more and more ads. It's at times painfully slow (even when the underlying site is fine). Every update comes with something that breaks, behavior changes, UI changes, and/or other nasties. Even when you disable the "posted via Tapatalk" crap, sometimes they re-enable it without asking. It just strikes me as one of those platforms where they are putting all their effort into profit maximization, rather than having a stable, reliable, consistent application. Pure speculation here, but I wouldn't be surprised if they were collecting user behavior/preference data to sell to marketing companies.

Sounds like it sucks on the forum admin side too.

Default Tapatalk network error, can't login

No idea what is going on between Tapatalk and this forum. It just stopped working few days ago, while it works with other forums just fine. Reinstalled to no avail, phone is Mi6. I'm not able to login with: network error, try again later.

See post # 3 until further notice you can assume tapatalk support is disabled.

Hi Jason, seems it's started to breath now. Have you enabled it back?
