I’ve used Tapatalk app in the past to access TNet forum feeds for a long time. Recently did an update on the app and for some reason had to add all my forums back in to the app. No problem except for TNet. It keeps giving me an error and says contact forum admin or try later. Anyone experiencing the same thing or have any idea what the fix would be? Thanks

The error message is because it is seeing the old website, the new website does not support Tappatalk. You can access TNet direct using you web browser on your phone. I use my android to access website then I set the option to desktop view in the options menu.

In the past I could see if a forum has new posts, it seems like that feature isn't working properly on the new software, any update as to when this feature will be up and running?

Click on drop down menu on right of "what's new" at top, lists new posts, new threads and so on. Can also click on "What's new" for different format of what's new.

I still see some forums are gold and others are grey yet there are new posting the grey colored forums is this old feature going to be working again? I like to scroll down through the forums and look for the ones that were gold which identified new posts.

Sorry sir, I misunderstood what you were asking.

If you look at any forum, on the left will be a small circle to left of title of thread, if it is colored red it has new posts you have not read, if it is white no new posts since you last clicked on thread.

I have asked admins if there is a way to make forum tabs change color when there are new threads and posts, will advise when I have answer back.

Thanks, I look forward to your findings.
Icons are correct now, if they are gold there are new posts, gray no new posts.
