Forum Migration - General Q&A
Members can reply to threads in this New diyAudio Platform Q&A forum but not start new ones. The idea is that over time we'll build a library of topics, one per thread, that address specific questions and issues.

If you have a question, please ask it by posting a message in this general Q&A thread.

Depending on the topic, your question might then be turned into a separate dedicated Q&A thread to address that specific topic comprehensively.

Will the new setup work with Tapatalk?

The new platform is built from the ground up as a responsive design that works great on mobile, so we won't be installing Tapatalk into it. Tapatalk has long been a thorn in our sides, causing various problems and bugs including server performance issues.

If things should improve on this front, please do reconsider. Else, Tapatalk's loss.

Good luck with the migration. Much appreciation for your efforts.

Cheers!

When the server had its last round of glitches, we spent several days looking for the culprit, identifying exactly when the server load spikes were occurring, and going through New Relic logs until it turned out TapaTalk was causing the load spikes.

I don't know what it was doing but it doesn't make sense to have the majority of users at risk of poor performance due to TapaTalk's code / infrastructure issues. Currently it's enabled only because we don't have a viable option at the moment for mobile users and we don't want to force members to use current site on mobile if they don't want to (it's not a great experience). So we limp along.

As we move to XenForo I think it's the right move for us to just focus on making our mobile experience great so there isn't a need to rely on the whims of 3rd party mobile transformation services.
