Can the forum owners please install tapatalk
http://www.tapatalk.com/

costs nothing for the website owners to install (and takes five minutes) and means for those who have the tapatalk app (android, iphone and blackbery) can view the forum on our mobiles easily..

you know it makes sense.

No, fix the forum first. No sense in adding supposed features that won't work with the broken features already not fully supported. If you don't know what they are go read the rest of this section.

The real question is why would CN add features at the request of #@%$&

you dont even have to add anyting to the forum, its literally just a a tiny peice of code uploaded to the server and a directory with its plugin in. then you register the forum with tapatalk and off you go.

people with the app on their phone then get a completely rerendered and easy to view forum like so..





I hold out absolutely no hope of any of the tech guys spending 5 minutes adding the feature, but if you dont ask, theres equally no hope either

The real question is why would you rather stick the boot into Dim than give support to a good idea that would help CN for free...

Because there are plenty of even better ideas in the queue that affect many that have yet to be acted on in anyway and adding yet another idea that only what seems affects two people well... why beat a dead horse.

I am actually pretty sure making the forum available to be used on a mobile would benefit more than just 2 people.

Tapatalk would be great

well theres that. I wouldnt suggest anything that actually involved time or cost to the devs.

But a two minute job with no tech experience required. Hell cn could probably do a deal to get comission on everyone who downloaded the app.

Doesnt hurt to suggest it. You never know, hell might freeze over ;D

Tapatalk support would be great.
Please consider to take the time to install the plugin. This is a videly used plugin, and would benefit all iPhone/iPad/Android users.
