    One of the huge advantages of this forum over the old is that whatever device you are using the forum will look great. Whether it's a cellphone, a tablet, a laptop or a big screen desktop everything should be perfectly readable and responsive.

    A couple of things to note:

    - You can now directly upload photos from your phone or tablet.
    - You do not need a third party app such as Tapatalk

    Please try it out on various devices. I'm no mobile expert but please ask any related questions in this thread.

    Open the site in safari with your mobile device then add a shortcut icon to your phone or tablet.

    Uploading a photo from my Samsung phone gives me the following error, The uploaded file does not have an allowed extension. I was able to upload the same photo from a computer.

    With Tap a talk ,, the picture was hosted by tap a talk , and did not add to our CC folder count .

    Has the number of pics we can store been increased in this new format? Or do we have to delete pics ?

    Is it capitalised like that with a capital J?

    jpg is an allowed attachment type but Jpg wasn't. I've added Jpg

    There will be a limit but I've not looked at what it is at the moment or thought about what it will be. There were 56,000 pics to import from the old system and it took 13 hrs, so I'd be reluctant to have no limit.

    Steve I tried again to post a photo from my phone it gives me 4 choices to choose from now one is documents if I select that one and then select gallery from the menu, something changed from earlier today, I can now post a pic from my phone. Hope all this helps to tune and figure out the new site.

    Made lots of small changes today. Not sure what might have fixed it, but glad it did :)
