1. Hey Guest, welcome back to DLP

    As you can see, we've changed our look. We've migrated from vBulletin to the Xenforo forum system. There may be issues or missing functionality, if you find anything or have feedback, please check out the new Xenforo Migration Feedback forum.

    Our dark ("Dark Lord Potter") theme is under heavy development. We also have a light ("Light Lord Potter") theme for those happier with a light background and darker text.

    Question: I browse forums exclusively on my phone with an app called TapaTalk. The migration didn't carry over, nor can I find a 'new' DLP in their list to set up.

    Does this new base screw that? I don't know how forums work in that regard. Does it need to be added, or is it just incompatible? I don't think SB/SV are on the app either, and this is the same tech they're using, right?

    There was a thread about this already. Pretty sure @Lord Ravenclaw said he had to install the backend for tapatalk for it to work.

    I know you're familiar with that, but I would suggest giving the new forms a shot inside your mobile browser. It scales phenomenally well. It can be tweeked as well, so if you find something with the mobile site that you don't like, screenshot it and include it in your thread here of what you would like adjusted to make your experience better. Thats what this forum is for. :)

    Thanks, I thought it was obscure enough that no one would really have my prob, I should have looked.

    This new site seems pretty slick, I've no issues with it, but I have a bunch of forums I follow in the one app. Rather have everything in one place :/

    The issue with the forums on mobile is you can't tell what threads have new posts, who the new posters are, and when things were posted.

    I'd say make a thread and screenshot. I have no such issue. Then again I have a very high resolution on my phone. Most everything displays in tablet or desktop format.

    I've been away for awhile so I thought this was a Phishing site. The Alert messages didn't help.

    I like the new look though.

    The worst part about this changeover is that, a few days prior to it, I finally broke down and blocked Oz's avatar... and now it's back. o_O

    Hehe.

    I embrace it, and avatars are basically people's faces for me. It's the prettiest you've ever been, @Oz.

    Looks like the familiar old DLP layout. Looks alright, except the bar that has "Mark Forums Read" and "New Posts" buttons sticks out to the left.

    There's a few problems on my phone too. The header picture is too big and I can't see the Great Hall section. (See screnshot)
    Works fine on Desktop though. Chrome on both.

    @Jon

    Those screens were taken in IE on a uni library computer. I mostly browse DLP on mobile (IE Windows Phone).

    And just noticed this as I type the post, text in the reply box is black and invisible. Was white and visible previously. I'm currently on mobile in the Dark Lord Potter theme.

    It's kind of difficult to tell what page of a thread you are on at a glance, since the highlighted number is almost the same colour as the others.
