    Ok, wirelessly posted info removed. The new system runs great, I like the ability to new thread or quick reply -you'll see the boxes as you scroll down. Works great on iphone+safari, so please let me know how it works for your other phones. This new version is likely the best mobile access solution for APUG yet :smile:

    Big improvement! Threads actually appear as continuous threads. Posting from an iPod Touch.

    Yeah it's pretty slick. I haven't played around with "my prefs" area yet, but I think it allows you to adjust quite a bit.. I'll definitely be using this system when I'm out and about.. The iphone app tapatalk has a new version and I'll try to get that in today as well, but so far the wap application is king.

    At this time it doesn't allow for new registrations. I'll try later.

    not sure what you mean Curt, you should be able to login as normal just use your current apug name & password..

    I tried the APUG login a couple of times without success, I was careful to get it right, I'll give it another try. I have a new iPhone G3S.

    Ok, just did some more testing. I suspect you are logged into apug and the password you are using for wap is not correct (but you may think it is). To test this try logging out of apug completely then log back in with what you think your password is (don't let the auto complete ad your password automatically, put it in manually). I have attached screen shots of me logging in and i also had a test acct login. Are you seeing what I'm seeing in these screen shots? Thanks

    Yes, mine looks just like the first two images you posted, I didn't use auto complete and put it in and used the sign in. It's not a big deal as I can log on the usual way and find my way around.

    I just tried logging off the APUG.ORG site but the WAP still didn't allow log on, I get the pop up stating username and or password is incorrect. ? I'll do the usual log on for now.


    Thanks for looking into it, it is probably on my end for some reason or reasons unknown.

    Sean, I jumped on my blackberry to read some threads this morning and said "hey, why's this look all funny?" That was followed quickly by, "hey, this looks pretty damn cool." Very nice work. Thanks from a frequent mobile viewer.

    Odd thing now. I have set truncating to off as before. Long posts such as Sim2's new article only show me his signature under his name. My response only shows my last sentence. This is happenning a lot and am missing a lot via my BBBold.

    There have been many instances in the normal posts where all I get is a signature or a short sentence that seems out of place for the topic. I'll get home tonight and try to send you a list of some examples. Left the BB at home today.
