Most likely related to Mobileread.com going HTTPS-only today. Will need to update the settings on Tapatalk's side later - then it should work again.

It went quite smoothly - I've been preparing the migration for the past week or so. Will write a short announcement later. Tapatalk should then be fixed as well.

Thank you for all your behind the scenes stuff I never realize you do, and for a great community!

It took me a while, but I finally got my various Tapatalks working again.

One version told me that I had to create a Tapatalk account to login to Mobileread, but that's not true. (I don't want to give Tapatalk the login credentials for all of my forums.)

In all cases, I had to delete the old Mobileread forum entry from the Tapatalk app (I closed the app to be safe) and re-add it. The biggest problem was that searching seems to be broken on older versions of the app. I was finally able to add Mobileread by searching for the full URL https://www.mobileread.com/forums/ .

Hope that helps somebody.

Tapatalk was confused when we switched to HTTPS yesterday. They don't follow 301 redirects, i.e. we had to manually adjust the forum URL in their control panel. Alas, their control panel was broken yesterday and didn't accept any changes. Tried again about an hour ago today, and this time it seemed to work.

Thanks for this!

I'm using an old version too. The new one has fonts that are too small in the thread even set to large. The list of threads is ok, it's only too small reading the thread. The people at Tapatalk don't care.

I'm still having a problem though - when I tap on a link for the "originally posted by" it takes me to the browser, not to the post in Tapatalk. Is this happening to you?

Mine's working normally again, and I did nothing special on my end.

This appears to only be a problem for MobileRead. I just checked XDA and it works there.

Edit: I get a list of apps to choose from and only browsers are in that list, not tapatalk.

I noticed something that's probably related on Android. When I was trying to get Tapatalk to add Mobileread back, I noticed that when I clicked on an http link to a forum (from anywhere - in Chrome, an email message, etc), Android would offer me a choice of app to use - browsers or Tapatalk. When I clicked on an https forum link, the only apps offered were browsers, but not Tapatalk.

I'm assuming that Tapatalk is only registered in Android to handle http URIs and not https URIs. I'm not sure where to check that, unless it's buried somewhere in the developer's settings.

I wonder if there are any other settings in the Tapatalk control panel settings that need changing for Mobileread?

Thanks Alex!

If you're using an old version then I suspect you may need to upgrade if you have any bugs happening.

There's nothing wrong opening an account with Tapatalk. It's an easy way to migrate to other devices.

I did a little more testing and I didn't have the problem on iOS (on a ancient Tapatalk v1.17.1 and a fairly recent v5.4.0). Clicking on the "originally posted by" link opens the linked post in Tapatalk.

On Android (I'm on v4.4.0), clicking those links opens a prompt to open the URL in a browser.

I don't often update Tapatalk because IMO every release gets more bloated and buggier.
