Tap Talk thread
« on: December 06, 2016, 11:34:57 AM »
I think we need a dedicated thread to deal with issues for tips and such for this app. I have a couple of questions/ issues some one my know more about than me.
Participated category.  I have noticed a lot of threads that I have posted in don't show up in that category. Is there some kind of limit to the number you have?

The search function. I have tried many times to use the search function and have had zero sucess with it. Tips?

In general I've tried to find some kind of an owners manual FAQ for how to use tap talk but haven't found one... Andy directions?

Search function seems to not work at all.

I've never paid much attention to the amount of my "Participated" threads are there. I know there are a bunch, but never paid enough attention to know if they were all there. Really it's just an app and has nothing to do specifically with Hunt-WA itself.
There are settings you can adjust if you go to the "Me" tab at the bottom right of the home screen. I've played with them a little. There is also a "Contact Us" tab there.
I've thought about sending them a message to ask about the search but I never did.

The search function doesn't work for me either. Neither does user profiles.

The search used to work and so did user profiles. For me anyway. But not anymore. They must have "improved" it with one of the updates. I go back to Safari more often than not. I mostly like Tap a Talk because the text is bigger and easier to read. Eye doctor gave me a prescription for bi-focals a year ago but I'm still holding off. Hey I can still read if I hold it out far enough, or if I take off my glasses.

Same here, I forgot about the profiles.

The primary issue is that tapatalk hasn't been updated to work properly with updated versions of SMF, that's our forum software. Unfortunately there's nothing we can do about tapatalk.

There are other forums that I frequent that don't even work on tapatalk at all anymore.

Just got a response wanting to know what forum I was talking about. That's all so far.

I don't use the thing, but make sure the button is engaged (so it's not reduced) probably a plus sign or minus sign.   It may not have it as I don't use it but that's the common mistake most folks make on their puters.

when your using a phone it us much easier to navigate.   The doing size is good so your not zooming in ask tje time when using a browser on your phone.  I had the same problem on my android right after an update thay it didn't work.   I totally logged off both huntwa and tapatalk logged back in and it started working.  The search i don't care much about but I see it as an issue for other users but I would really like to see the view profile work

I think tapatalk might also use less data.

Way more user friendly when using a phone. Plus I can go to one place to browse several forums vs having to go to a new website (as long as the forum supports it). It has its pros and cons like anything though...
