    I know. I didn’t find out until a few months ago about that, however. The way the other website has it set up is better, IMO.

    Depending on the browser, it does not always work that way. For instance, in Firefox, it takes me to the last post in he thread, not my first unread post. In Chrome, I am taken to my first unread post. Probably has something to do with the way that browsers manage cookies.

    I am a member of a Disney site that must store the information in a user history on the site because even in Firefox, with cookies disabled, I am automatically taken to my first unread post. But the entire forum loos different, so they may be running on a completely different platform.

    Probably because Chrome doesn't recognize the posts I've read on TapaTalk all of the time.

    Re: Upcoming site upgrades

    Not related to site upgrade but a question for those in the know. I am using an iPad2 version 9.3.5 and I cannot upgrade to a newer version. I have always used the web browser that came with the iPad, Safari. I have noticed over the past year how slow the iPad runs, especially on Tidefans. It hangs up and continually reloads. I have run all sorts of turning things off, hard resets, resetting to factory installation, etc. based on Apple support suggestions. One day I went to Settings > Safari > Advanced > JavaScript. I turned off JavaScript, went to Tidefans and it was lighting fast, no reloading. That was great but I could not give Thanks, Likes, etc nor reply with quote. Any thoughts or recommendations would be appreciated.

    Mainly because I am so used to people complaining about change. I'm not going to let the opportunity pass me by...CHANGE? WHY CHANGE? IF IT AIN'T BROKE WHY DO YOU WANT TO MESS WITH IT? GOOD GRIEF, WHY CAN'T PEOPLE JUST LEAVE THINGS ALONE! ​Seriously, keep up the great work!

    I do notice, too, that the ad at the top covers up the majority of the tabs like my inbox, my profile, etc. I’m using an iPad, though.

    I expect as we move through the upgrade process with a forum upgrade over the coming months, this should improve noticeably. Probably not much that you/we can do presently. It's optimized about as much as this version of vbulletin allows without total customization.

    Yep - as I posted earlier this morning, we're working on it Might be a few hours to get it straightened out.

    Thanks for the patience as we work through our own version of The Process!

    Thanks. Do me a favor when you get a chance and see loading is now any better. I just tweaked a couple of the JS lines to defer loading. So, the overall site might load faster for you now. If not, just go back to what you had...As you know, Ipad 2's are really really really slow given modern browser technology. Especially sites that are interactive. As I mentioned, I imagine that once we upgrade the forum software it should be better, as well.

    This feature has changed my life when I read about it.

    Re: Upcoming site upgrades

    Will do and let you know. Thanks.

    ETA: Some improvement when going from thread to thread in Tidefans, but if I click on a link in a thread I get the same result, slow and reloading. Could be the liked site and the fact that this iPad2 is at least eight years old. I will let you know if it improves.

    Re: Upcoming site upgrades

    My early feedback on the ad changes: * It takes too long for a page to load now - up to 5 seconds, which is crazy long. * While the page is loading the page jumps up and down as the ads load, making the wait even more frustrating. * The ad at the bottom of the page covers actual site content, which essentially makes the page shorter as you have to scroll sooner. Also, I put each bullet on a separate line but the change implemented rolled them up together in one paragraph, as if the "return" had not been entered between the lines.
