When typing a reply, in the bottom of the reply box it occasionally says "Last auto saved..." and the time.    How do you access this draft? as quite a few times in the past I have typed out a massive reply and then fucked something up and lost it all.

 

Nobody?

Try clicking "More Reply Options".

Should then say "View Auto Saved Content (Today xx.xx)" at bottom left of typing box.

Click this and it opens a text box showing the saved content and a button saying "Restore Content". Click this to restore.

Works for me.

Several questions and hope I've found the right spot to post em. Do you like a post by clicking the tick in the top corner? How do you post photos? How do you link things off the internet into your posts? How do you change the picture ( avatar??) In the corner of your posts? A lot to learn I know but my posts are dull as fuck but fair play folk have liked a few of em and would like to return the favour! Really not computer literate so any advice at a simpletons level would be mint

I'm trying to get pics from my phone to my Volvo for sale thread, tapatalk tells me "We have a problem, sorry we have trouble to complete this request. (sic)

Then suggests I contact them to send the non-existent error log - yeah sure!

Is there an alternative application or other method like using the pics from my onedrive (which I have posted links in the forum thread but can't get my head around making the pictures actually appear on Autoshite.

Thank you kindly :)

1st question - in tapatalk yes. On the full version there is a box marked 'like' or something equally obvious bottom right.

2 - err can't recall on tatatalk

3 - copy the URL

4 - user settings somewhere

I normally browse on a PC so not used tapatalk a lot to really compare them. Try both, see what suits you.

There should be a 'Like' button at the bottom left of each post in Tapatalk. Note that the number of 'Likes' on any post never exceeds 3, irrespective of how many it has actually collected - a bug with Tapatalk apparently.

The tick at the top right toggles whether you are 'Subscribed' to that topic - if you are, you will get notifications of new posts by other users, dependent on what notification settings you have on your forum profile (which is independent of Tapatalk)

Tapatalk is a bit limited when it comes to inserting emojis into your text and uploading images - you cannot choose where the image appears in relation to your text. I do upload the odd spot with it though - it's OK for that. There's a button below the text editor for uploading direct from the camera or images from the gallery in your phone.

ETA A Tapatalk improvement is that you can now edit your posts by selecting them, causing a spanner/screwdriver button to appear on the toolbar - press on that and you can choose whether to edit or delete the post (though I think deleting may rely on it still being the last post in the thread)

I pretty much use Tapatalk for all my posting with pictures now. Yes that includes my project write ups! Otherwise I just use the mobile website as I find it easier to navigate through threads than the app.

You can choose where to put photos in Tapatalk

if you upload the image
Then touch it
You get the following options

And choose insert inline - otherwise pops all the pics at end of the post

It's certainly what at work I call 'a bit wank'. Whether I can see pics on posts is a lottery, which is annoying for the spotting and ebay tat threads, and any for sale items. And any collection thread graced with pics of stations, breakfasts, toilets etc. when I think about it. In fact on a lot of threads. And yes, it seems to lurch through phases of chronic instability.

 

Vicious circle for the Tapatalk developers, I'm tempted to help them make a better product by giving them some money for the full, ad-free version (I get moronic ads when viewing other fora on it) but I'm discouraged by the fact that the app's issues will probably affect the paid-for version just the same, so I put up with it.

I used to get picture issues with Tapatalk but not so much now. The issue of AS just stopping, seemingly when a new post comes in or I open a larger topic, is VERY annoying though. The other forum I use on TT developed the same issue as AS at the same time but they've fixed it now. TT did suggest a while back it was older software between AS and TT or something along those lines.

When it works, yes it's very good for pics I find.

Notifications are playing up, both e-mail and on-site.

 

3 threads I've not unfollowed I get no or very few notifications about. (Zel's Camper, eBay Tat and DW's Fox)

 

No e-mails for "likes" or PMs. Autoshite is not a blocked domain on my account. Haven't receive an e-mail from AS since 1st August.

 

Have checked the on-site settings and they are all as when I joined.

Why put up with Tapatalk being crap? The mobile version of the forum works well for everything apart from posting photos. If you need to post photos open the full version for a bit and realise how fat your thumbs are.

Never had it. I've brought it up a couple of times and been told it's nearly there everytime. Last time was 28th January.

It really shouldn't be that difficult to convert to move all content over to HTTPS. Tedious yes but difficult no. There are quite a few IPS boards (software that this uses) that are there. Any image links or such like can be updated with a couple of SQL queries or even some simple scripts. Theme likewise gone through and update and hard references to HTTP in links to HTTPS. Certificate wise Let's Encrypt is free and effective.

Bit disappointing tbh. Especially as all data is being sent unencrypted in clear text. Be that forum content, private messages and password.
