    I'd like to suggest that you change the forum format a bit so that it's more touch friendly. Specifically, instead of having thread page numbers appear below the thread title when you hover the mouse, have them fixed so that they are touchable without having to open the thread where page numbers are constantly displayed.

    In IE at least, just clicking the link should take you to the newest post without needing to select the page number....

    Yes, you're right it does that for most threads but not all, for some reason...

    Indeed, the forum does support Tapatalk and it works very well for supported forums but there are a few things you may not see, like some signatures. It is a preferred way to use forums on portable devices.
