Any chance you can add Tapatalk support to this forum by registering it on Tapatalk? It means you don't need to maintain an app for the forum as Tapatalk will do that and would keep us smartphone users happy

Will look into this - but given that the forums are run on entirely custom software and not a ready-made forum package, there will like be a decent amount of dev work required to add Taptatalk support.

I've also heard some annoying things with tapatalk for tablets and integration, so I'm not absolutely pro it (though I should change my sig). Just trying to figure an easier way for mobile devices but it may end up being more work than doing a mobile web version of the forum.

Would love to have the app back, I still use it on my old iPad and it is so much easier than the iPhone. I find I have to zoom right in and then scroll left and right to read a post. 

Also, it seems every forum page I read, when I click on the last page, it takes me to the last empty page. It used to only happen to a few pages, but now they all seem to be stuck with the same error... 

Any fixes would be great. 

Still love the forum tho, muchos love to you all for continuing to run this.

The page thing is related to deleted/hidden posts. If we had less shark cods it would happen less.

Yer, I remember someone saying that the last time I asked about it. 

The issue is, when more pages get longer and longer, it increases the chances of it happening to all the pages you visit...

I'm sure the technology exists to rid us of this bug??

It may but resourcing is an issue. Patrick is snowed and Nik is sitting on a beach in Corfu getting hammered with Mrs Nik.

I'd like to have a go (both at updating the iOS App, and resolving the website issue with correct links to new posts).

There's a bit of a workaround for the page thing. This link (to what is currently the last post in the New Merch thread):

"www.yellowfever.co.nz/categories/wellington-phoenix-discussion/topics/new-merch-preorder-your-scarf-now?page=4#post_1294423"

for example, takes you to a blank page with links to the 3 pages of the "New merch" topic, but looking at the parameters in the link, it is trying to point to a non-existent page 4. If you click on the link to page 3, it loads to the top of page 3. But, if you edit the link to point to page 3:

"www.yellowfever.co.nz/categories/wellington-phoenix-discussion/topics/new-merch-preorder-your-scarf-now?page=3#post_1294423"

and submit that link, it takes you to the right post! (If it doesn't, try subtracting another 1 from the page.) Sometimes, a link will take you to the top of a page with a few entries, but not as many as you were expecting - in these cases edit the link by subtracting 1 from the page parameter.

Can all these new song threads be moved into the "Chants" thread?

there is a specific thread for any proposed chants or songs. Each one doesn't get it's own thread.

I wasn't sure where to put this but this thread seems to fit my question best. 

Is the app still a thing? if so is it available on android? (I can't seem to find it)

While the app still works in limited form for those who have it already installed, it is not maintained and i understand it is no longer available via Play Store.

I use it for browsing active forum threads, and am replying to this thread via the app, but i can't recall last time i used any other features.

It still has bugs (browsing threads with 30 unread posts, zooming images etc), but i continue to use it knowing these bugs won't be addressed.

If you accept those limitations, and have confidence in sideloading apps, and ask nicely, someone might be able to send you a link to a file. But I don't have one sorry.

I use it for downloading podcasts and the active forums, works well enough for me.

The Android one still functions well enough, the Apple one needed constant maintenance with the iOS updates iirc. They were gonna try and code the forums to be more mobile friendly instead but since it's a passion project, it isn't top priority.

With all of these blank pages appearing in threads now (there are more and more of them now) is it time to re-set in some way? Going forward is it possible to have a “placeholder” inserted when a post is deleted rather than it just disappearing? You see that in other forums, that would possibly fix the problem. These placeholders say something along  the lines of “this post has been removed because it breached the terms etc etc).

I think that would be more annoying than the odd blank page. 

The posts also don’t get deleted, just hidden. So I’m not sure if that is the cause of the blank page. 

Allegedly
