DANG! I missed this ride.

This forum needs get connected to Tapatalk.

tapatalk requires me to give them permissions to both the forum admin panel as well as my web server log in credentials. That, for me, is too much a security risk.

We do have a mobile version.

m.twowheelmichigan.com (http://m.twowheelmichigan.com)

it works very well.

As an IT guy, I can't argue with your reasoning. But I like being able to access all the forums I read in a single place and TWM is the ONLY forum I read that isn't available on Tapatalk. Unfortunately, since its an outlier, I tend to forget to check it regularly.

Ive checked taptalk and I can't get TWM roadglide.org so I just have icons on my phone that link to the sites. I used to use the motorcycle.com app but it sucked out loud

Yeah I'm not a super IT guy with this stuff so I am cautious.

Like Medic said, I too use a shortcut icon on my phone.

tapatalk is a program that a forum owner buys and runs on the forum site. Then as an end user you get the app on your phone, you select the forums you are part of from their list of participating forums, and it kinda pools them all together for you on the app.

But I have already stated my concerns and why I don't do it.

Well even if you do I wont use it. My only beef with the mobile site is I can't post links. I wish the vb software allowed a little bit more freedom when posting links and pictures.It kinda sucks not having the advanced setting on the mobile site so that also means no smilies

Tapatalk is a forum reader app. As a forum owner, you can install their plug in and enable it to work on your forum.

https://tapatalk.com/, scroll down - iPad, iPhone, Android, Windows 8, Windows phone.

That's the simple explanation for the end user... but it's a bit more than that due to credentials jazz.
