Tapatalk - not all forums loading
« on: February 09, 2020, 06:48:51 AM »
On my Pixel 3a, I can't get THIS forum and the Davis subforum under hardware to load.  Not sure if that's a forum problem or tapatalk problem.

We are using the latest Tapatalk plugin, and both Tapatalk and the forum connection to it seem to be working, so I'm a little lost to try and debug such an issue.. I'm not a Tapatalk user per se, but I'll check on my iPhone.

Just checked on iPhone Tapatalk app. Posted this reply there. Other than a slow load, seems to work tor me. Sorry, I don’t have an Android device handy to test there.

Just posting an issue I'm seeing with Tapatalk and these forums.

These forums are either really slow or I cannot get into some of the sub forums or threads. It just times out

I know when I see this on my own forums it's usually Tapatalk have released a new plugin for the forums. Just wondering if these forums need an updated plugin or not?

Using Tapatalk pro for android here. All my other forums I use Tapatalk with, are working fine

We're running the latest Tapatalk plugin (4.5.7) for SMF 2.0.17 released 10-Jan-2020 and installed then.

The plugin admin page says everything is connected correctly and up-to-date, the installation directory/files are all 755 as instructed.

I don't know where to go with debugging the Tapatalk.. I'm not a user (just have the iOS app to test a bit).

Sorry in advance for bumping an old thread...

I'm having this same issue. Best I can tell, any forum I've posted in and/or read posts, will be very slow to load; if at all. If I visit a forum I haven't read before, it loads right up.

Glenn. My issue is usually sporadic to say the least. Sometimes it works great. Other times it just won't load content.

I've learned to live with it.

I've just checked -- we are running the latest (current) plugin version of TapaTalk on the forum (Tapatalk SMF 2.0 Plugin 4.5.7 )
and the API key is valid.  We are only using the 'Free' tier .. I don't want to pay/month for a higher tier membership in TapaTalk.

There are no SMF settings for TapaTalk that address the slow-loading issue that I can find.  It is genuinely quirky software (IMO).

That is bizarre. This is the ONLY Tapatalk  forum that fails to load Unread messages or show threads in any subject group. Do paid/unpaid subscriptions have different cache support? Or fetch?

It is most likely a Tapatalk issue. I use it on my own site but that uses xenForo and I haven't used any other Tapatalk enabled forum that uses SMF plugin so I can't really compare it to my own site.

Just did a status check, and all is 'green'.  The paid tiers have to do with removing ads and banners.  We (wxforum.net) don't do any ad displays on the site.  In tapatalk, ads are inserted by them in the tapatalk client (for free tier supplier sites).  Nothing in the tiers implies responsiveness is altered by having a 'premium' membership for the forum (just removal of ads/banners).

Is there any setting that determines how many thread titles are loaded per request? On other forums I often get a short pause as I scroll down through a long list, and I presume its returning a set number until you scroll to the end...

No such setting available.  Just the basic credentials settings, and a panel to disable boards and new topics in boards (and none are currently set to disable).  Sorry.
