    So, one of the features I've been most excited for in iOS 6 was the ability to post photos straight from the camera roll, but so far, I haven't figured out how to do it. Does anyone know how to do it?

    Just click attachments below your post editing box, then choose file and a dialog box opens giving you the camera roll option.

    I uploaded the attached screen shot doing that from my iPad.

    Non-technical: One of the administrators will have to add a camera button to the mobile site.

    Technical: To support photo uploading, an administrator would have to paste this code:

    Code:
    <input type=file accept="image/*">
    and do some funky CSS to add an image and make the white box that normally appears look like it's not there.

    Does tapatalk support posting pictures directly from my iPhone's photo gallery that was introduced in iOS 6?

    I was messing with getting it working on the mobile site. still working on it.

    It's bit awkward the way vbulletin handles it.

    Just bought tapatalk, and I have to say, I much prefer the mobile site.

    Well that was fast. Any specific timeframe that you think this might be implemented by? A few days, a week? Just curious.

    Did you get Tapatalk for the iPhone or iPad? Tapatalk HD for the iPad is fantastic. I don't use the iPhone version of Tapatalk though and prefer the MR mobile site.

    Tapatalk for iPhone. Personally, I think it's awful so far. Used it for an hour and tried to like it, but it's just not for me. Mobile site is definitely better.

    I agree. I didn't care for it on iPhone, but I do like it on iPad with the larger screen size.

    Yeah the interface on iPhone is clunky and unintuitive. Definitely not worth $2.99. Should be more like $0.99

    I think if you get used to it, you'll like it. If not, sorry for bad recommendation....
