Tapatalk on new forum, when?

Hi to all the Mint users and welcome back!
Thanks to Clem and his mates for a quick recovery from the last unpleasant events.
I just wanted to ask - are there any plans for this new forum to support tapatalk, as the previous did?

I am having the same issue with Tapatalk. No connection to Linux Mint Forum. Forum plug-in needs to be updated?

probably not - in the near future, that is.

this Forum is using different phpBB software to that of the old Forum,
and Tapatalk is not integrated as well, as it used to be.

Tapatalk is on the list to consider adding, but there's a few other things on the forums that we want to cover first. Security implications of adding extensions is also a topic we have yet to cover.

If it results in topic title being deleted like in the past, I would honestly prefer Tapatalk not to be reimplemented. :oops:
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.

I fully agree. I hated to see those posts without title.

Could I be cheeky and ask what "tapatalk" is? This info may benefit other users. I've seen this at the end of posts on other forums in the past. I assumed it was for "mobile" devices?

Thanks!

It is a forum browsing app for mobile phones/tablets, for android, ios, wp.
In order to be tapatalk enabled, each forum must implement tt plugin.
Furthermore, tt can store all your forums login credentials and by logging into tapatalk you are being logged into all those forums. Which, off course, I don't recommend :? ... why risking, it is perfectly usable with the "old" logging procedures.

If I might add, tt is one of the most frequently developing apps, new versions are coming everyday, thus bugs are also very present :D , I have settled on ver 5.7.2.

I guess I won't be wrong if I say that tt is the only app of its kind. It would be nice if in PC world such an app existed, but no. Some are saying you can have tt in win 10 on pc, but I haven't seen that screenshot so far 8).

Anyway, tapatalk is an example of a mobile technology evolving fast forward, faster than all the others. One more example - can you find a word predicting app in windows or linux world which can learn and predict typing words based on the user's expirience, like an android google keyboard or swipe or touchpal...? Off course, no.

I repost my comment. It still holds true.
