    I agree that the site works much better than the old version on my phone.

    Regarding pics... I'm of two minds here. I love that we can upload pics directly to the forums. I had pretty much let my Photobucket account die anyway, and I now refuse to pay them yearly so I can have greater bandwidth and storage, such that all my pics show up. I'm going to migrate all those photos off at some point, or I may just leave them there and export/copy them elsewhere. Given that a lot of my pics are embedded in old threads that don't claim as much traffic anymore, maybe they'll continue to show up.

    However, I agree that photo resizing is going to be a bit of a pain. I can't upload directly from my phone to BFC. The file is too big. So far, the easiest solution I've come up with involves emailing the pics to myself as "Large" or "Medium" attachments instead of "Full Size." If anyone has a better workaround, I'd love to hear it.

    Screenshots of images on my iPhone are small enough to be posted in full, so opening up a photo you want shared to fullscreen and then taking a screenshot should work as a workaround.

    Edit: just did that with a photo that was too large in full, it worked.

    Yes, it's a paid feature. You still have access to profile posts (previously called visitor messages)

    I'm still working on that. For now, you can use a site like imgur and copy their share links.

    Yep, worked pretty quick and easy. Clicked the "Upload a File", picked one from my photos on my iPhone and chose to insert the full image rather than the thumbnail. No error message that it needed to be resized. Pic I just took the other day so it's a pretty damn big file size too.

    In a quote, I have noticed that a link will show, rather than the picture when it was uploaded directly. I suppose this saves on bandwidth.

    Ahhh, I see that now. That's kind of nice since it gets old scrolling past the same pic when people seem to like quoting the pic for the 20 consecutive replies following the original post lol.

    I've already "unpublished" the site from there and told them to remove all content. We'll see what happens

    As far as posting pics directly from my phone (and iPad) I also had the file too large message. I downloaded a free photo resizing app, and now no problems. I can resize old pics, as well as take new pics directly through the app. I set my pics at 50% through the app and they post every time. Since downloading that app (there's quite a few to choose from) I have uninstalled TT and haven't looked back. Hope this helps.

    The one I downloaded is called Photo and Picture Resizer. It was the first app listed on the android store when I searched "photo resizer"

    Good day everyone!

    Just want to hear from people using Tapatalk if they are experiencing the same thing as I do. Whenever I try to use BladeForums on Tapatalk it keeps saying "There is a problem with BladeForums. Contact an admin or try again later. Code - 2209.

    Hope any admin can shed light to the problem.

    Thanks!

    I don't use TT but it is no longer supported as of now. Go over to techsupport to see the discussion.
