Bring back tapatalk capability!!!!

Surely, all those hundreds of forums that enable tapatalk can't be having system issues as well!!!

I agree, I miss Tapatalk. It's a great way to access the site when at work or on the go, which is quite often for me!

Once again I think the server is having an issue with runaway threads and threads not timing out. Too many active threads open, sluggish performance on an average server. This really shouldn't be a big deal to fix but, oh well.

Please bring it back - RFF is so much easier to browse on Tapatalk than it is on any desktop browser. Would be a great shame if RFF can't make it work as it so clearly works on a lot of other forums

I agree. If there are underlying root causes dogging RFF, let's fix that.

Tapatalk, along with some bad code and db tuning needs have been the issue. There have been some tweaks to the db but not apache. the apache conf is the way it is to limit the potential of DOS attacks. The CMS on RFF is very poor and old and needs replacing, Showing explains from mysql shows that the gallery software and classifieds software also contains poorly written queries. One thing that would help but cost more money is to separate the web server from the db server. Overall there has definitely been an improvement since this all started. We could also go to innodb storage engine but we would lose the fulltext search that comes with vb. There are also tons of hacks doing checks on every page load to make sure certain things happen as expected. Compare the page load times on the home page vs http://rangefinderforum.com/forums . At least for me it is significant. Anyway, we are looking at options.

For waht it's worth the site loads for me in about a second or so.

For what it's worth, the search function isn't worth it.

Please don't let saving the existing text search function be the reason for not changing things so that TapaTalk can work.

I've never noticed RFF being slower than anything else on my slow connection, other than the Portal page being a bit sluggish at times. And since 3G has arrived here in rural VT my phone is far faster than my internet connection. Wish I'd kept that unlimited data plan...

Let's fix RFF - it's been buggy (Classifieds pm system is still screwy). Then bring back Tapatalk.

If it requires money to fix it, I'll be happy to donate. I've been reading about 10% of what I used to when RFF was working with Tapatalk.

Normal service seems to have been resumed. Speed is reasonable all the time as of last night. I'm curious to know what the resolution was.
Methinks the server is on the edge of its performance limits for this forum and tapatalk pushed it over the edge but its guesswork from this end.

So what's the plan now with the Tapatalk integration? Any outcome of the analysis after a month or so without it?

Thanks a lot and regards
Ivo

I found performance varying after Tapa was deactivated. So I'm interested if someone was actually either able to hunt down the root cause or if at least something definite cn be said regarding Tapa. No plan to sink the ship

Good to see, that Iエm not alone :-(

I have a bookmark from rangefinderforum at tapatalk. So Iエm sure, some time ago it was working. Now it doesnエt work for weeks, months ... I donエt know how long itエs dead already. There is everytimes a note to inform the admin. Hereby Iエm doing this (hope he is reading the thread).

What a pity ... and I changed to LeicaForum.

Have a nice Sinday,
R

Can't see it installed yet. I'm actually not convinced these add-ons are the main cause for the observed behavior.

+1. At this point, I'm reluctant to buy another forum app just for RFF.

Hi Ray

Unlike tapatalk, there's a free version of forum runner, seems pretty usable on l-camera and other forums, give it a try, would be curious how you think it compares with tapatalk.

Forum Runner is actually slightly faster than Tapatalk on my devices. I look forward to using it here on RFF as I've missed Tapatalk.

I am not tech allergic - quite the opposite, but I do in fact prevent any serious internet activities, like reading, selling, buying, forum activities, etc on portable devices, except a real computer.

I find it uncomfortable, slow and annoying, to use a smart phone for such activities.
I do have a iPhone, which I use for web, if absolutely needed. It is a phone, calendar, music player, swiss army knife otherwise.

A comfortable, modern web device it is clearly not - way too fiddly and small screen for reading.

I don't miss any Tapa,

I never found tapatalk until after it was shut down on RFF, but I do find that I keep up on APUG much better with it.

Web content for small devices still needs to be treated differently today, for performance and appearance reasons. Browsing RFF on the iPhone is certainly not fast with the built-in browser. That's where Tapas are good for
