Well, okay. 'Nuther can o'worms is opened. Turns out this member actually has chosen to not receive PM's OR is not allowed to receive PM's. Looks like that may turn off the thanks button. Going to test this theory now.

Tapatalk plugin

Has there been any thought given to installing the Tapatalk plugin to the forum?

This plugin makes it much easier to access the forums from a smartphone (iPhone, Android, Blackberry and some Nokia smartphones are supported.) The plugin is free for the forum, and there's a free version of the smartphone software that lets you READ forums. The version of the phone software that allows creation of threads, private messages, etc. is $2.99.

I have a fairly high-end phone and posting to the forums "on the go" using the browser puts a pretty heavy load on it, I use tapatalk for other web forums and wonder if it might be beneficial to include in this one.

The site is: http://www.tapatalk.com/

We have discussed it but have a custom app in development.

A custom app that would work on iPhone, Android and Blackberry? Or a custom iPhone app?

Not sure of this would go here or not but I have a question about the ipad app. Is there a way it can remember where I left from. Sometimes I leave the app to check something on the internet and I have to search out where I left off. Maybe this can be accomplished by supporting backgrounding.

Is there a way to move all the photos that have been added as attachments to threads off into the gallery under my profile?

With a MacPro I can click on a photo that I have posted as an attachment and copy it to my photo files, from there it could be added to my gallery if it's within the size limitations.

Yes, I could have been more clear. I don't believe there is any way to do this from within our forum software. You're completely right, Robert. There are analogous ways to do this on a PC too (not starting a GM vs. Ford war here... ).

Question I want to place a new post

Good Morning. My Wife and I have found a 28' Safari with slide out in Cincinnati Ohio and we live in Northern California. I found the feature that lets you look for volunteer inspectors but I must have operator error as it didn't find anything. First, is there a simple click to do a new post? Thanks.

The search form for finding inspectors can be a bit fiddly, it's easy to click enough boxes to prevent you from getting any results. You have to do 2 searches, one with "Trailers only" and another with "Both Trailers & Motorhomes" because if you just select "both" you'll only get members who chose "both" in their profiles, not either/or. Also, since there's not a "distance from X" option, you sometimes have to do another search in a neighboring state or two, especially for a city situated like Cincinnati, where it's nearer to 2 other states than it is to other OH metro areas.

In fact I think your best bet is a guy in Alexandria, KY... only about 15 miles from Cincinnatti. I'll PM his username and some others I found.

Searching for inspectors

So, the post earlier from Land Sailor made me realize I should have posted this here when I discovered the quirk I mentioned.

The way the data is set up, we should either loosen the search criteria or tighten the data entry or both. One option would be to change both the selection in our profiles and the selection on the search page for types on inspectors to radio buttons, so you could choose only one. As it is, if you chose both "Trailers" and "Trailers and Motorhomes" when searching, you won't find anyone unless someone who meets all your other criteria has checked BOTH of those... but it makes no sense to check both of those. There are in fact 6 members out of the entire member community who selected Trailers+Mohos+Both, 6 others who select Trailers+Both, even a few who checked ALL the boxes but the data is easy to fix, the correct flag is "Both" on their profiles and then the data is fixed.

If you could only choose 1 both for setting your profile and for setting search parameters, it would work out better. As it is, to get the full list you have to do 2 searches, and that doesn't occur to people who aren't database nerds with OCD like me.

Another option would be to make the search more liberal... if one searches for either Trailer inspectors or Moho inspectors, the search would return both the ppl who said they'll do the category the user is searching for, or the "both" category. I don't know which is easier/possible given the vBulletin software.

NOTE: This applies to using the "member search" page and not to the "Find Inspectors" box on the Portal page, which makes you choose from a drop-down list which is better, but still doesn't address the fact that if an inspector checks "both" and you search for "Trailers only" you won't see that inspector.
