    I'm getting the same issue with the Nfl thread. I get a notification saying there is a new post but it takes me to a blank page and then I have to back track.

    Edit: forgot to mention I am on tapatalk for iPhone.

    Yeah I thought I had that one figures out. Before, I thought the blank page meant that the precious page was full and therefore the next post would go to the new page. In my first two tests this was the case.

    However, since then, it's done it to me a lot where there will be a blank last page and the previous will have as little as 2 posts sometimes.

    Tapatalk for iPhone, btw.

    Tapatalk for iPhone here as well, and I've had as many as 15 blank pages pop up in long threads.

    You might just need to refresh it or close the app and re-open it. Others who are using tapatalk, like PrincessKenobi, can see it just fine.

    Why not a mobile version of the site itself?

    I've been able to see the Episode VII thread in Tapatalk.

    I did have a weird issue today where I had to keep logging in though. I'm sure that's unrelated to the Episode VII thread and may have had much to do with the fact that I was in an area without a great connection.

    Still experiencing the extra blank pages at the end of threads. Does anyone use Forumrunner and knows if this happens? I'm so tired of it with Tapatalk.

    I believe I've seen it on both. Still unsure as to what's causing it to be honest.

    Sometimes I'm still not able to see the last page of a thread in tapatalk, too. Just happened in the NFL thread.

    It's gotten much better lately, one blank page as opposed to 15 of them.

    I've noticed on tapatalk it is not always allowing me to see my Private Conversations.

    I can't see things in spoiler tags. There used to not be spoiler tags and now the buttons are there but it wont show the whole message I am getting about six words.

    There is a new version that just came out a day or two ago that is supposed to address bbcodes. Maybe it'll work better after we upgrade.

    I suspect the blank pages thing on tapatalk is caused by threads with a high page count, that seems to be what triggers it for me.

    Yep, seems like it.

    On other forums they limit threads to 50 pages - might be an idea here.

    I've stopped using Tapatalk for threads that have more than 5 pages. The extra pages are killing me. Plus if I post to one of those threads my post disappears anyway and I have to use my phones browser to see more of the conversation.

    I just got a Tapatalk update on my iPhone, but it didn't seem to help with that issue.

    Actually, I just checked and they've released yet another update recently. This one specifically mentions "correct page numbers", so I'll see if I can give it a go.
