    Tapatalk is not working anymore with basenotes. Any ideas/info?

    Glad you posted this. I've noticed the same problem for two days.

    Tapatalk appears to have switched to https for access, which Basenotes does not support (though I feel strongly that it should).

    Damn. That might mean that Tapatalk won't work anymore until Grant updates the SSL Certificate, which will likely require a new server transfer. Ugh. I've been posting about the unsecured website here for a year to no avail. This will suck if Tapatalk is broken indefinitely.

    Same issue here. It's a must have for being on the go and still utilizing the forum. Unless there is a mobile skin for the browser?

    There is not mobile friendly version of the site, unfortunately. I’m sure that is part of the full-site overhaul that Grant is supposedly working on. So unless he gets the SSL Certificate updated and the site transferred to an appropriate new server, which is usually required to get the https:// Secure certification from Google, then apparently Tapatalk is going to remain broken. Maybe he will get that done in the interim, but who knows. Until then the site will be non-mobile friendly.

    Well I still got the notification from Tapatalk saying you quoted my post, so at least that still works.

    Yeah it's been down for me as well for a few days now.
    Is it definitely a fault on Tapatalk's end? As in a new restriction they've introduced?

    I don't think you can call this a fault on Tapatalk's end. If Pstoller is correct then it means that just as Google is downgrading sites that are "Not Secure," Tapatalk is now only transmitting data for websites that are secure. And Basenotes has not been updated with the required SSL Certificates to be considered a secure website. I had to transfer my own personal website to a new server at my webhost company to qualify for the Certificate. Google has already downgraded Basenotess...you can tell by the text in red next to the URL.

    Agree. I even paid for Pro membership to Tapatalk just for Basenotes and now it's worthless.

    SSL certificates are very easy to install and inexpensive, actually... A must-have nowadays..
    It could be easily solved by contacting the server and requesting one.

    Very disappointed.. Browsing the forums on my phone's browser is horrible

    Actually it is free - https://certbot.eff.org/ .
    I don't think issue is money.

    It's not necessarily free...Depends on the hosting server. For my own personal website, I had to pay to move my website to a new server that was compatible to the SSL. It wasn't a huge fee, but it cost something. And then the effort to transfer all the files to the new server without breaking anything.

    If I missed any announcements, I apologize.

    I just came on to say that I haven’t been posting because Tapatalk is my primary means of access to the forum. The site is not mobile friendly and I’m mostly on the go. Sadly, this will result in continued loss of general participation from me and eventually me not renewing any subscriptions. I do hope to see resolution of this current state. I will try to post as I can on a desktop but that’s not going to work for me long term.

    Best wishes to all.

    Very understandable. My participation is also decreased by this. No statements from Grant that he is fixing this any time soon. I'm very disappointed he hasn't posted any news of his "progress" and it's starting to feel like the site is going to die a slow painful death.

    Has been dying a painful death for a while. It is a matter of when not if, unless things change.

    I was hoping the issue would be resolved by now. When I contacted Tapatalk support, they said the reason is that Basenotes does not have a "working Tapatalk plugin running" and they contacted the forum owner to update the plugin.
