I know that many of you access Yellow and Black via Tapatalk on your mobile devices.

Unfortunately, there have been several issues detected in the software that has seen support for the plugin removed from the Xenforo website (Xenforo is the forum software that we use on this website).

Some of the issues include:
  • User passwords being transmitted as cleartext making it easy for hackers to intercept
  • Tapatalk by-passing Xenforo's new two-step authentication protocol
  • Tapatalk e-mailing forum users directly
  • The splash screen that greets users when they access yellowandblack.com.au/community directly via a mobile browser (this can be switched off by me but I chose not to do so as I had a preference for people to use Tapatalk when browsing the site on a mobile device).
As a result, Tapatalk will no longer be available after this week. I intend to remove it from Y & B over the weekend.

Xenforo has a responsive mobile design so you will still be able to view and post on the site using your mobile device.

There are other mobile apps that can be used to access the forum (i.e. Forumrunner) however unlike Tapatalk, they are not free.

You can still post using your mobile device. The mobile design is quite good and will be improved once I install the version 1.5 upgrade after season's end.

Use my mobile more than a desk/tablet or other larger form factor. No problems for me....e..x..c.e.pt that one thread Round 21 Tigers v Magpies where TBR was the last poster. System still thinks his last post is worth reading over and over and over...it will not acknowledge that the forum has been read!

Just keep liking it and TBR will make sure it disappears to protect his badboy unlikable image

Many of my posts contain layers which need to be re read several times to be truly absorbed.
