I have a question regarding the new website and the various operating systems ...

The post I made with pictures on the Motorcycle Memorial show perfect on my laptop and desktop. The laptop is running Win7 and the desktop is running Pro - the forum looks normal including all words and pictures. The problem seems to be with my MacBook, iPad and also my iPhone. I can not see the full post on phone (none of the posts), half the words are missing no matter what direction I hold phone (vertical or horzizontal). The iPad the posts look OK as far as reading BUT the pictures are "squeezed" looking so half the subject is gone and what is showned is distorted (I look like I'm 4' tall and 300lb) Maybe the website is not apple friendly?

Is there a setting on my end that I need to change? I was hoping others would post comments on the pictures so I could see if you see the entire pic or if you see half of it or if you see it distorted?????

Not trying to cause more work for anybody and maybe these issues are already being addressed? A nice new website everything should work and MORE MEMBERS need to use it!!!!!!

I have the exact same issues on my iPhone and iPad as V-MAN.

A lot of us also use an app called Tapatalk to read various forums on cellular devices. Advrider has the appropriate Plug- in for that as do sites such as the BMW MOA. It may be also a good idea to get the Tapatalk plug-in installed on the site as more of us visit the site on cellular devices. It really makes reading forums on small screens easier. While the app costs around $4 to the user, there is no expense for the site.

Here is the link for the free plug-in

We are working on getting the Tapatalk plug-in installed on our site to help with cellular devices.

Hi Joann -

I thought I'd check in to see if there was any progress on the compatibility issues. When I'm on the road I use Apple products exclusively ie i-Phone, i-Pad ... only being able to see half the post(s) makes impossible to read anything. I do know a few people that run various websites that don't have this problem, I could check with them if you would like?

Hi Don,

Jay Singh is assisting our web developer to get the Tapatalk app installed. Should be ready soon. Thanks for alerting us to the compatability issue.
