Well, when it's working, it's very helpful. I am able to get notifications of PM's on my phone, moderation reports, etc. It will help me to respond to forum issues faster when I am away from my desk.

o.k........i downloaded tapatalk and installed the app, i pop on the net using my mobile IE browser to BnB  I get a message at the top of my pg saying

"FOLLOW BLADES AND BUSHCRAFT
WITH TAPATALK FOR WINDOWS PHONE"

Open in app...Install

I click on "open in app"..............nothi ng happens or changes

If I click install it just takes me to where I already downloaded the app from

What am I missing?

Hmm...

I'm an Android mobile user so I'm not familiar with windows mobile. We know tapatalk is working (hence the suggestion to use it when you log in via your regular browser, and the fact other users can access the forum) so it sounds like an app issue on your device.

I was unable to access the forum yesterday after tapatalk was fixed, until I uninstalled the app from my phone and re-installed it. then everything worked fine. Also, you will need to sign in to tapatalk with a tapatalk ID, (or google + or facebook) and then sign in to the forum using your regular username and password that you use in a conventional desktop browser.

Try opening the open, then do a search for Blades and Bushcraft.  That should do it. It wasn't opening from the Web page like you tried, for me either

That's the new tapatalk.

You can put tapatalk into "dark mode", which I like the looks of a lot better than the regular white pages. Hurts my eyes less.


The good news is that it looks like we might be getting a few new registrations on the forum through tapatalk that would not have found their way here otherwise. There is a "survival" category, but nothing for knife making, and no specific bushcraft category. So, I put us in the survival category. That is probably the closest to what we are about here and hopefully will attract members with similar interests.

Never new about that mode. It is easier on the eyes.

OK all you fellow Tapatalk users... why in the hell is it that everytime I get off and back onto the forum do I have to constantly enter my user name and password? 'Back in the day' I use to always stay logged in. I've checked the settings and have found nothing :shrug:
Is it because I now have an android phone or is it tapatalk ?

And Wolfy... I don't want to hear any carp from you :P

I really do hate this 'android' BS... :pissed:

I don't use taptalk much on my phone I just use the browser. I just clicked open taptalk, chose the B&B forum, and I am still logged in from two months ago.

So I guess it is on your end.

Yeah... that's what I was thinking! Thanks for the reply!

Maybe another lowly 'android' user will reply and we'll see if they have the same problem. I think that it's just the POS operating system in android!!!

Don't blame Android, blame the phone hardware. I run Android on 3 devices and it has been great for me.

You might need to clear your cache. Also, if you are running a power management or task killer kind of thing to save battery power, it might be stopping tapatalk from keeping you logged in in the background.

Bearhunter it might be your phone.  I have used multiple android devices with tap talk and have never had the problems you are describing.  Try what PW suggests. Deleting the cache or potentially the data might do it. You will have to re enter username and password again, but should be just once after that.

Since so many folks seemed to really like Tapatalk I figured I would try it....give it a shot, see what it was about!

Tried it on my old LG Windows phone and my recent acquisition Gal s3......I just don't like how it formats the forum, I like to see the Forum on mobile the same as I see it on my PC, so that means Browser for me but on this new s3 the screen is plenty big enough to view.


BH, you mention Android but what version and on what phone,  have you tried doing a Google search for your problem? there has to be someone else who has posted somewhere or made a YT vid ....give er a shot if you havn't already done so.

I think PW nailed it! I've got 'battery defender ' Installed... that's prolly it!

You need the photobucket app on your phone. It will allow you to copy the IMG code for the pics and then paste it into your posts in Tapatalk.
