    For some reason I cannot see chapters listed in Tapatalk.

    I can get to the posts if I see them under unread posts, but the forum folder and sub forums are not shown.

    Just so you know.

    Yes, this is a known issue. Sorry, we are unable to improve Tapatalk to see the chapters due to the lack of funding for this feature.

    Tapatalk application is probably fine. I imagine it is a forum site tapatalk feature that cannot be turned on. But this is probably what you meant.

    It is a funding problem that get this folder to have the features it needs? Like, you need to pay tapatalk to be able to turn on this feature?

    Yes. It's like this. The developers who wrote XenForo, our site's platform, are not the same developers who wrote the chapters and calendar plug-in, so basically, we are running two separate sets of platforms that do not "see" each other fully.

    I think I would have to contract with our personal developers to enhance Tapatalk to see our chapters. I just paid them over $500 USD to bring our live site up-to-date with the latest XenForo version because there are a lot of fixes (not that we experience any real problems here), spam handling, and features. The main reason why we need this upgrade though is because some of our personal developer's plug-ins are not compatible with the latest version of XenForo, so they had to be rewritten. At the same time, they have made some improvements on the usage of our calendar features, which we partnered with another group to help cover the cost. They will upgrade everything on our site that needs upgrading, as well as our test site.

    Thanks. Good info. I do not envy you all. Being a born geek and employed as one I feel your pain.

    I just hoped it was going to be easier than that.

    I get it. I was a network admin for a major airline, and I worked my ass off there. The hours were endless. When I got home, I hated working on my own network and computers. Then I would have to "dial-in" to the extranet often to troubleshoot problems from home. If it couldn't be resolved at home, even at four in the morning, I'd have to drive in. sigh. miss it though.
