    It's Friday, I'm in Love...
    I was an IPSE Consultative Council Member, until the BoD abolished it. I am not an IPSE Member, since they have no longer have any relevance to me, as an IT Contractor. Read my lips...I recommend QDOS for ALL your Insurance requirements (Contact me for a referral code).

There's a couple of problems with it at the moment (duplicate pagination at the top of thread pages being one) but it's much more usable in a phone web browser than the old version
      Sorry NickFitz, but it's unusable on a mobile phone (Android using Chrome). The mix of fonts and sizes, and the clickable buttons and their sizes. Tapatalk was one font, and all the additional unrelated bits were just not present - clean interface.

        But that was a separate app and nothing at all to do with what Nick has been asked to do..

          I'm not suggesting it's NF's fault - just about every single forum has Tapatalk integration, which is provides a single pane of glass for users of multiple forums (as an example, I am active on at least 6).

            So go and hassle admin as it's a commercial decision (to pay Tapatalk money) that he needs to decide upon.

              Morning all

              Clear blue sky, dry. A chilly 3 degrees and it'll get up to 11 later. Unlikely to rain. Very light breeze. Barometer has lept up to 1034 mBar.

              Pleased that I slept well last night. I did wake up once but got back to sleep quick enough. TFIF.

              Today's Kantar diary fact is:
              The United Kingdom reaches its highest ever winter temperature with 21.2oC (70.2oF) at Kew Gardens in London 2019

                  Morning denizens

                  Sunny here and starting to warm up after the temperature dropped sharply overnight: currently 4°C heading for 10° later, 1026/1034mB

                  Injection site is still sore, but I feel OK, or at least I do so far today…

                    I've never used Taptatalk, so I wasn't aware it was more like a glass Teletype. Anyway, the mobile design is what the people at vBulletin came up with, so unless CUK is going to hire a designer for a major revamp of it, we're stuck with it.

                    It's a bit cluttered compared to some mobile sites, which I can try to do something about, but I reckon the powers that be are still going to want the branding and significant interactive features to remain, rather than turning it into a Reader Mode thing

                      It means less traffic to the forum and the site in general particularly from autumn onwards when people become more mobile again.
