Repeated Safari or Tapatalk selection requirement on iPhone

Post by Wonks »

iPhone and Safari on OS15.1

When accessing at forum post level (not the main and sub-forum menus), I've been getting the all greyed-out screen with the selection box for viewing in Tapatalk or Safari at the bottom of the page quite a few times, maybe 1 in 5 times.

I've deleted the cookies and logged out and in again but it's still happening.

This happened at the start of the new forum set-up then got fixed. I assume this must be down to some changes to the forum software as I've been on iOS15.1 and it's version of Safari for a while, and this has only been the last couple of days.

Looking at the other thread it would suggest that the problem is to do with the Tapatalk update not a forum one.

Ignore the post count, I have no idea what I'm doing...

Apologies - We updated the Tapatalk plug-in yesterday after they requested we do so, and I tested on iPad and iPhone and all seemed well.

Have passed this on to our web developer to investigate and resolve a.s.a.p.

Hot tip:
I find keeping the good coffee in an old marmalade jar in the fridge makes it last much longer - the kids don't like marmalade.

I wonder why that could be.

We've tweaked some settings so it should all work OK now.
Please can users try again.

I've looked at about 30 posts on the phone, and it hasn't happened to me yet, so it would appear to be OK again. Thanks.

If it does happen again, I'll post back here.

That's some fine tweakage.

When it originally happened I closed the windows, emptied the bins and the problem went away. When I returned it had come back but your magic wand seems to have remedied the situation.

Previous to emptying the bins I also had to sign in again unexpectedly, might that be connected?
