Colors seem fine to me.

I did change the color scheme. It was far worse.   It was completely white, except the top border.  Now everything is shades of teal or gray, except text boxes which are off white.

People's comments with the new colors has been positive so far. Do others think we need to darken them further?

Seems the majority of the members don't have a problem with the color scheme.
The needs of the many, outweigh the needs of the few or the one.  
So for those that do have an issue (and are using Chrome browser) then just install the "Dark Mode" Chrome extension by Grephy. 
It makes the site (or any site) look like this...

The cool thing about it is that its a toggle in the upper toolbar that one can go back to regular bright view or dark anytime you want.

So I leave for a few weeks because AP calculus runs my schedule now, and... this happened? Huh.

It looks pretty good. I'll get used to it.

Were the EX144 errors associated with the upgrade or other issues?

Something happened yesterday morning that caused some critical files on our server to be corrupted.  IPBoard tried fixing code by hand, but kept finding a new error somewhere else after fixing another one.  They ended up installing a new security upgrade over the site last night and that fixed the issue completely.

Basically keep checking here for a new version of the Tapatalk plugin to be posted https://www.tapatalk.com/download_IPBoard.php

Yep.  If they come out with a new version after 8/17, I will give it a shot.

what about the ability to subscribe to literally any of the forums, or more importantly any of the topics in those forums under the "The S4GRU Club" category?  I have subscriptions going back years that i no longert get updates on and I can not be the only one.  Would seem this is a pretty big oversight / bug in the software.

I agree.  The new software doesn't allow following topics behind the paywall.  IPS did this by design.  Because other sites asked for it to be this way.  Because they have fluid memberships, good for a week, a month, a year, etc.  Where as ours are more static, most indefinite.  People were still getting post content behind the paywall via email notifications.  So they fixed this hole.

This "problem" didn't affect S4GRU in the past, and this new "fix" causes a lot of problems for our membership group.  Unfortunately, it appears we are in the minority here.  They said they may make it adjustable in future releases where it can be selected by the Administrator.  But until then, following behind the paywall is not permitted.  I miss this feature very much.

Seems like that is what they should have addressed specifically, instead of throwing the baby out with the bathwater and going the way they did.  A real shame, more so for this site, as it is a hindrance to further participation and posting in important topics.

I think you misunderstood the point of the post. We're not talking about a new version of the app, rather the back end portion that allows sites to be displayed on Tapatalk. This site has not been accessible on Tapatalk since the upgrade by IPBoard.

Is the site still being upgraded and not detectable via Tapatalk? It has been inconvenient to not be able to use the Tapatalk app to read forums.

Unfortunately the current release of Tapatalk is not working with the current release of IP Board that we are on.  It will supposedly be fixed on the next update of Tapatalk.  But we are still on the 8/17 release when I just checked a few mins ago.  It is out of our hands.

I had problems last week accessing the site. It said of 404 error not found. But it works now though. That was strange.
