    We are in the middle of a major software conversion and site upgrade. Please let us know if you notice any issues or are having problems with the new site. I'm sure it will take us a few days/weeks to iron out all of the bugs.

    On mobile, is there anything you guys need to do for it to work on TapaTalk again? On TapaTalk, the site worked flawlessly before the changes.

    This is still up in the air and we'll do some testing over the next couple of days. Right now we are working to make sure all of the redirects from the old site work correctly and I'm still tweaking the style.

    Tapatalk worked well with vBulletin, (which is slowly losing support) but it doesn't work as well with Xenforo. Many of the large forum are starting to end support for tapatalk as they convert to newer software.
    • Tapatalk will not be able to support custom features
    • Tapatalk adds another layer to the website, making it slower.
    • Tapatalk is buggy, with new updates being released all of the time.
    • Tapatalk has had security issues with user accounts and passwords.
    With the new software built from the ground up to work extremely well on mobile devices, I'm just not sure the need is there anymore? It will take some time to get use to the new software, but I think you'll like it after a while. I've been working on vBulletin forums for 15 years and know that software inside and out. It certainly took some time for me to learn the new software (front and back end). I hate change as much as the next guy, but change is a given in the tech industry.

    The site looks really plane. There's no flavor to it. If I compare it to another mobile site it wouldn't be distinguishable. Is there any way you can bring the green/white background or something towards the site's appeal.
    For instance on the outsides of of chat boxes or posts or something? Other than that, Tekno already showed me how to access latest posts and stuff (I was used to the app's 'unread' as opposed to the/this site's 'active topics'), but it might be confusing for long time app users

    Sure, I can work on that. I've already ditched the white background and now using a gray pattern.

    Thank you kind sir. Thats already better, lolz I don't really like the color white. I suppose black would be best, but I know others won't like that one :p

    Isn't there a way that ppl can customize towards their liking. At least the layout?

    Yeah, it's hard to please everyone, but we aim to please!

    We might be able to add a dark style after we finish this one up.

    Also, you might want to try a hard refresh every now and then. I'm updating certain images and your browser could have old images cached.

    Any way we can get the one tap go to first unread icon back without having to into the thread first? That is super helpful.

    I like the grey background now, just a solid grey. Perfect.

    Let me look into this. Are you trying to do this from the "Active Topics" link?
