Sponsors Forum via Tapatalk?

I have the same problem with Tapatalk. I haven't found a work around. I don't have the same problem in ForumRunner, though. Is everyone who uses Tapatalk locked out of the Sponsors areas?

If i go under the forums tab it will prompt me for password aswell. If I am under "Latest" it will open up the thread.

Got it...click on forums tab-> then click by "name" instead of the default "category" and scroll to the sponsors forum name...opened up fine.

 

The premier and contributing author ask for pass still though that's expected for me as I'm neither of those. Regular worked fine with the slight work around.

Interesting..

As do I. (I can't be left out of this monkey pile) LOL

Ok, The above is true, but if you view the top level forum of the Sponsor section (The S4GRU Club) in the categories listing of the Forum tab, like so...

Then click and hold on "The S4GRU Club" selection until the pop up comes up.

Select Subscribe.

The section now has a star at the lower right of it.

If you click on the Favorites tab, you will now see The S4GRU listing.

If you click on that, all the hidden sections of the Sponsors area is now listed.

So if you click on any one of them, the threads show up.

Except (you knew that was coming), the S4GRU Contributing Authors Forum. When clicking on that to see the threads, I do get the Protected Forum message.

So either that is the culprit of our woes, or even I as a moderator cannot access that section. :(

 

Of course all of this is only a temporary solution to viewing the sponsor forum, and Tapatalk may need to investigate the issue and push out a fix. At least this way, one has a faster access to that section by using your Favorites.

I have reported the issue to Tapatalk. Also, Moderators are supposed to have access to the Writers section. I just verified the settings. Perhaps another issue?

Tapatalk was upgraded to their new 2.0, but I don't know if it fixed it. The new version is absolutely horrible looking. The dark scheme looks like halloween colors. And the biggest thing of all, anytime you hit the home key to switch to another app to do something else and you switch back to Tapatalk it restarts Tapatalk so you have to go find your threads again! Arghh.... so glad I had a copy of the previous version in Titatnium Backup. I quickly restored that app back to its working order.

 

It's unfortunate that a developer takes such a great app and kills it. Forum Runner isn't any better :(

Tapatalk told me that it was going to be resolved in 2.0. It did not resolve. I wrote them an e-mail. They basically said unless I dump Forum Runner, then they will not be able to give us that level of support. I hate ultimatums. If I didn't have so many members that prefer Tapatalk, I would have removed them right then. That was a ridiculous answer. I'm sorry.

What does dumping forum runner have to do with it I wonder. btw I didn't even know about the Forum Runner app.

Therefore, Paid, Downloaded and now using instead of Tapatalk.

 

Able to get into the Sponsors sections without any issues or password request.

They offer upgraded support for customers who will sign an exclusivity agreement with them. Which means dumping Forum Runner. I like being able to offer both apps for our members. And I personally prefer Forum Runner. In fact, I am using it right now. But I know many of our members prefer Tapatalk. So I want to be able to offer both.

 

Many sites use one or the other because of this reason.
