Can we get tapatalk support added to the forum?

Postby belboz » Wed Jun 30, 2010 2:47 am

Was just curious if the mods could add the free tapatalk module to the forum?

http://www.tapatalk.com/en/mobile

It is a small download you upload to the forum directory, and you have to add one line to the forums overall_footer.html file.

Basically once added it allows android, iphone, blackberry and nokia phone users to read and post on the forum with a native app for their phone.

I have used it on a forum of mine, and also to access other forums like atariage.

It makes it nice when using your cell since you get a nice UI that is targeted for your phone, and allows you to read and post more easily. No need to pinch/zoom or scroll around to read a forum on your phone.

It is a free module for forum owners. The app is free on the phones for read only access, but to post it requires purchase ($2.99 USD for the Android version)

Would love to see it added here. Hopefully others would too. Very easy to do. Took me five minutes on my phpbb forum.

All I can do is ask Silver Surfer and it's as and when he's passing and got the free time to add it, then he might add it.

I just look after the front-end of the forum.
My main site: http://www.mug-uk.co.uk - slowly digging up the bits from my past (and re-working a few): Atari ST, Sega 8-bit (game hacks) and NDS (Music ripping guide).

I develop a free Word (for Windows) add-in that's available for Word 2007 upwards. It's a fix-it toolbox that will allow power Word users to fix document errors. You can find it at: http://www.mikestoolbox.co.uk

Aye, is summer. But I guess you have never experienced Scottish summer :lol: . Also, after 4 years taking the same bus route... the street scenes do not seem that enjoyable anymore :P Maybe when we get the Tram finally build. But this seems is not gonna happen in the next 2 years :(

I'd never heard of this so I looked a little more into it. For Nokia Symbian phones, the full program appears to be free. The only Symbian phone mentioned that it won't work on, is the N95. Typical, that's the phone I use! :x Would have been a nice addition.

Has somebody look at it already? I believe it's just a matter of registering this forum in their website. The registration of the forum is free, and then is up to the users to buy (or use the Lite version) the app.

I have an HTC Desire. I would love to try it. Is it just a file that you download on your phone and then install?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks ProToS. I didn't realize that you were talking about a Windows Mobile App. Guess I didn't get the winmo you wrote :mrgreen:

Anyway, atari-forum.com isn't in Tapatalk, right? Hence it cannot be accessed with that App.

I'd like to add to the request for tapatalk support, i'm one of those who are on VM and am unable to access the site except on my phone - any movement on this? I understand its a very quick and easy install...

More admins are being sought as I can't do this kind of stuff - hopefully some with PHP skills so patches like this can be done and we don't have to keep annoying Silver Surfer to do this.

nothing to patch, just a folder with php scripts to add

Installation instruction
========================

For details step by step instruction to install Tapatalk plugin to your phpBB3 forum system. Please login to http://www.tapatalk.com/directory

Installation is easy. It does not change any of your forum settings or overwrite any of your existing forum code and configuration. Simply follow the procedure below:

1) Place the zip package at the root of your forum system.
2) Unzip the package. You should see a directory called "mobiquo" inside your forum system root directory. For example, if your forum URL is http://www.mysite.com/forum, it should be placed at http://www.mysite.com/forum/mobiquo/.


To uninstall Tapatalk:
- Remove the "<b>mobiquo</b>" directory.


"So how do I know if I installed properly?"
- You will need to login to the Tapatalk Forum Owner Area (http://www.tapatalk.com/directory) to verify the installation. As soon as you submitted your forum information into the system, a simple tool is provided to verify your installation. If it doesn't appear to be working properly, you can post your problem at Tapatalk Community Forum (http://www.tapatalk.com/forum) and we will assist you any problem that you might have.

Not exactly. At the office I can't get 3G. Maybe something the managers have done to keep us from distracting :P

Our wireless works under VPN, and I would need a token on my phone, which they are not gona give me. We're still lucky to be able to use our mobile at the office. Sometimes it feels like an arcade room, with all the different notification sounds coming from our phones :P
