I've worked out what the problem is!  :thumbsup:

PHP on the server has been upgraded and has sharpened the security... Tapawhotsit requires fairly loose security so I need to try and balance the two...

How's the balancing going?

To be honest I haven't had much time to look at it as I've been working on the new apartment almost 24/7...

...and the last thing I need at the moment is to gub the forum and have to choose between spending time fixing it and meeting my tight schedule next door.

I'll just say that the feedback from the SMF (the forum software) developers on TapaWhotsit is not very positive...

Shocked I am not

Tapatalk the company are obsessed with 'fixing' things that aren't broken and finding ways to 'monetarise' (their word) things forum admins would normally assume were free.  I can see that sooner of later they will make you an 'offer' to host your forum for free as "they will be retiring the TT plugin for the likes of SMF forums".  Their Support forum is bleeding useless with pathetic organisation and worse has become dangerous as those that get too vocally critical there have been banned not just from the Support forum but via the TTID from every forum that Tapatalk host.

I can't find this issue either on their Support forum or the alternative forum

In short I believe the days of VP on the TT App are numbered if not already over
Well, whatever nevermind

Ah aggressive monetisation, the abominable brainchild of Electronic Arts and Activision that is slowly spreading across the entire IT industry. Next they will be talking about hosting Tapatalk as a 'Live Service'  cussing:

Not because of anything I've done...

...although the stronger security settings on the site now register it as 'not installed' in the error log of theirs... Perhaps that is it...?

could be

Any screenshots you can email/PM me and I can raise it on their support forum and they may give an answer.  Closest I can find is this inconclusive thread which describes the situation as of a week ago (but not today)   https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/tapatalksupport/no-postings-t44108.html

- something else?

I do miss it but the sun does manage to keep rising each day

There is a theme specifically for mobiles but it costs $25 per year...  eeek:

Meanwhile, I have uploaded a new theme which you can select from your profile called WideRC - try that...
