It was more complicated than I thought to update the board to (hopefully) fix the Tapatalk issue. I will slowly update the appearance of the forum over the next couple of days/weeks. My priority right now is to get Tapatalk going again.

Would be awesome if that layout worked with this updated platform, but it doesn't. I should be able to implement some custom changes I made to the hold the header, but the style/theme itself will need to change.

I got the logo working.
Favicon is working.

Problems I tried to fix and failed (and will likely ignore forever)

I like that this style has notifications. They are more useful than I would have thought.

I did notice that everything says COLON. That's pretty weird.

Haha. I did too and was going to ignore it until someone else noticed. I'll Google that tomorrow.

I'm getting an email damn near every time someone posts. I have all of my email settings set to off. Please make it stop.

I am guessing you accidentally favorited threads on the app. Uncheck those? I will check things on my end. Or change your email address in your account?

Edit: I turned off an email setting in your account. Hopefully that fixed it.

I updated my language pack and that fixed the colon issue. What else are you noticing?

Actually, nothing anymore. I think the language pack fixed it. A lot of text for buttons (that must be variables) were messed up, but it looks normal now! Good work!

I like the new look. It's more animated when you post and interact

I actually like that too, it makes the site seem more "advanced" and "techy" - almost as if I knew what I was doing.
