Can't login with Tapatalk anymore

Posted 26 December 2013 - 07:33 AM

Since about 2 weeks ago, I've been unable to log into DIC using Tapatalk. The error displayed on my device is "Both fields must be filled in", but I did fill in the user name and password fields. I tried retyping in the both the name and password fields as well and still got the same error.

Is there a way to get this working again?

I also experienced this yesterday, after updating Tapatalk. Perhaps some sort of change in their login requests?

Any resolution to this? I rely on the app to use forums. I googled "tapatalk must complete both fields" and it seems like a common problem. One person suggested the plugin has to be upgraded on the site.

Ironically, when I visit the forum on my phone, it displays a message inviting me to use tapatalk, which doesn't work!

After the update I also was unable to use tapatalk as a "logged in" user. I have to browse and read as a guest.

Here is one solution that may work

I'm guessing the Tapatalk plugin for us was turned off for security reasons when we had those issues with snippets. When I do browse on my phone, I usually just use the mobile browser anyways.

On my phone I use chrome for android, on my tablet I was using the tapatalk app. Now I just use the browser and I removed tapatalk when I could not log in again.

I use Chrome too but the reply/new post editor on the phone shows gigantic letters and is barely usable.

Same thing here. I was using the app and the subscribed topics widget on my android phone. It stopped working before I updated.

The script that should be updated is on the server side. The client-side detection script doesn't check if the forum is tapatalk ready, it only matches the words "iPhone", "android" and "Symbian" in the navigator.userAgent property.

That's why I was interested in the Tapatalk solution. Hope it gets fixed before too long...
