My two biggest fears in life are:

Getting out of the shower and backing into a buttered doorknob.
Going to Heaven and upon arriving at the Pearly Gates the Angel says ...  Screen name and password please.

Thanks, my problem is as you say ...  Fixed.

I changed my password to "incorrect", so when I forget it, the computer tells me that my password is, incorrect!

Any update on how soon we might have tapatalk functionality restored?

I've recommended not using Tapatalk due to multiple security issues.  If Gary or Phil decide otherwise, it can be restored.

I messaged Gary a week or two ago and was told Tapatalk support would be coming back.

It sounds like it's time to message him directly if you care about Tapatalk.

Personally, I use the smart phone way more than the computer. It's not unusual for the laptop to stay up on the shelf for weeks at a time without being touched. I welcome tapatalk.

We use it especially when we are on the road and now don't use this board as much because of it not being enabled. Between that and having to put in My ID and password every time I come to it or go out.

Anyone who is having to log in every time they access the forum must bookmark the current url.  If you're still using the old url (busconversions.com/bbs/) your login will not stick.

Krash,

have /bbs URL point to new one. Add rewrite rule in the conf file in the sites-enabled folder (Apache2). NGINX has similar feature.

There's a redirect on old server that redirects busconversions.com/bbs/ to busconversionmagazine/forum/.  Works fine, but breaks the cookie and loses login.  This was discussed previously, updating bookmark to current url fixes it.  It's a temporary measure, as old server is supposed to be shutdown at some point, and domains will have to be reorganized.

Okay, here we go again.  When you insert a (") quotation mark this thing is coughing up a question mark instead.  It is also using a question mark for the (') apostrephe mark at the same time.

Which in turn creates an editing nightmare if you use any of the above mentioned characters.
