I'm not sure if these are Tapatalk limitations or something just isn't configured right on the forum.

  • No BBcode for things like bold, italics, underline, strike-through, and other text formatting options.
  • Comment reactions. You can only "Like" a comment in Tapatalk. Is it possible to get the other reactions in Tapatalk?
Anyone have any insight on these? I've been finding I'm using the Webview option in Tapatalk a lot because of these issues which kind of defeats the purpose of using Tapatalk in the first place. Is it maybe just better to use Safari to browse the forum on mobile?

We don’t really have any control over tapatalk. And they haven’t updated in a while. I would like to get off of it but I don’t want to cut off the users that are on it.

I only ever see this forum through Tapatalk as I prefer the simplicity of it with managing threads. I don’t use forums that aren’t Tapatalk supported as I hate desktop view. It does have its limitations though and I wish they would update it considering I think I paid around £5 for the app many years ago lol.
