The moderators have caught up with the fact that nobody wants to know what model of mobile device we use, or even that we are using Tapatalk rather than a browser, and they certainly don't want to see it repeated on every post. Quite probably, most tapatalk users don't feel the need to tell the world that either --- but how to turn it off?

I suspect that Tapatalk have an interest in promoting their app. They probably do not want us to turn it off. But we can, and once we find the setting it's easy.

This applies to the version of Tapatalk on my phone today. Tomorrow, details may change!

Quote:
on the bottom line of Tapatalk, click on <Me> (it is the last icon, but that may vary according to version etc).

Then Click on Settings.

Then, about half way down the long list of options (scroll down: it is more than one screenfull), click on Signature.

Select None

Happy Tapatalking

(If all else fails, it just adds the signature as a text line in your post: you can edit it out again after posting.)
I humbly suggest to mods including a link to this when they blue-note tapatalk-signed posts. People do not find it easy to delete the sig. I didn't either, when I first used tapatalk. In fact, I had made several posts before I even realised that the curse was upon me.




This was not sent from my Motorola X Play, model XT1562, Android version 6.0 (stock but rooted), using Nova Launcher. It was sent from my PC, Linux Mint v.17.3.... ... ... etc

Do you periodically accept to update your tapatalk? I am not facing any issues with tapatalk.

Remember to delete the App's data and cache if a simple re-install does not work. You will have to reset all the login details for your subscribed forums.

Noticed today: Tapatalk upgrade restores the signature.

If people have Playstore/App preferences to auto-upgrade, that might even happen without noticing, so we have to keep an eye open for that signature.

Even in Tapatalk itself, it can be edited out after posting. It just adds that line to your post.

Another timely reminder to members. Kindly remove Tapatalk signature from your phone. Instructions on how to do it is in the first post.

A general tapatalk moan: ads!

What a pain in the neck. I don't mind buying a paid version of a good app: it is little enough to do to support someone who develops something useful to me. I block ads on my phone, but many of the aps are paid versions anyway. If I use it and like it, I pay.

Tapatalk Pro: "Includes ads." I wonder what they think people are paying for. Apparently Tapatalk has a history of this stuff.

One for Nadreg's list of changes: a good mobile skin for the site, so we can dump Tapatalk. Team-BHP has gone that way.

Until then, well, when I feel like lounging on the sofa instead of coming to the desk, Tapatalk will have to do. But I'm certainly not giving them any money.

Work is going on for mobile skin. Hope the prototype would be available soon for testing.
