Accessing Forums on Mobile Devices
« on: October 31, 2014, 06:59:25 AM »
Hey folks -

we've had 2 recent changes to the forum software.

1. we updated to a newer version of the actual forum software, which included some security updates for the underlying platform

2. we installed / enabled Tapatalk for folks on mobile devices

There's been an occasional report (OK, it was Gus) of some slowness hitting the site from mobile devices since this happened.

Is anyone else experiencing any slowness in their mobile browsing experience since these changes?

Negative. And I use a POS Windows phone.

I'm on my phone as I type this. No noticeable issues.

Just tried it with an iPhone 4s and it worked great. Not slow at all.

Porn sites are not a good comparison set.
