Opera Mini seems to work fine for me. Tapatalk is an app for Android which allows you to surf and post on these forums directly from your tablet. It was posted as a news article.

I can confirm the same issue, and can't access the site because of the tapatalk pop-up on login. Using Opera Mini 5 for Android, on an Eken M001, running Ecotox 1.1.1.Steps to reproduce:1.) enter www.slatedroid.com in address bar2.) address bar becomes www.slatedroid.com/vbulletin/3.) popup message appears:
"www.slatedroid.comThis forum is Android native! Click OK to learn more about Tapatalk for Android.OK Cancel"​
4.) clicking "Cancel" changes address bar to dlgbtn:2yields message: ERROR: You tried to access the address dlgbtn:2 which is currently unavailable. Please make sure that the Web address (URL).......blah, blah5.) if you clicked OK instead of Cancel the address bar goes to dlgbtn:1 with the same result.Ironic not being able to access the site on an Eken, and because it is so Android friendly. ;)Typing this from my laptop.

Ah, I just got this error this morning, I'll look into it.It looks like an error with the latest version of Tapatalk not being installed on your device which, to be honest, is a bit of a letdown on the part of Tapatalk. Try updating it and tell me if the problem persists.Either that or try it in a different browser, it works just fine then.

As far as I know, I don't have tapatalk, don't want tapatalk after this performance, and want to access slatedroid from my Eken using Opera.Why must we have a dropdown ad script getting in the way when we want to access the site? Can't slatedroid just advertise tapatalk conventionally with an informational ad on the site?Sorry but why do users have to conform in software preferences to advertising requirements, rather than ads have to conform to user software preferences? It's one thing to have to look at an ad you don't care about, and another to have it completely block your access to a site.

If you had done that first you would have discovered that many other people are having the same problem as yourself on various other websites, and therefore it is not as the result of us placing a script to deny access unless using tapatalk - that would make no sense.So like I said, please use a different browser for the time being while I try and get this sorted.Thank you.

I'd prefer not having that thing installed to access the forum (had the same problem as OP).After knowing that it was mandatory to access it through my M001, I installed it, but don't really like it.A piece of software surely useful for many but for me, something that keeps my M001 away from this very site.

I didn't say you placed a script to deny access to the site unless using tapatalk. I said that was the unintentional effect of the script. It is a form of advertising for tapatalk, and it does seem to be an interaction, as a guess, a script somewhere whether on the site, or in the Eken, that recognizes some code on the site. The address it produces in Opera is probably partial, and so the result is an unintentional block due to a "site not found" error message..Your first response to the OP didn't appear to take the issue seriously. The second after I detailed it told me to use tapatalk or a different browser. Of course I can do that since I reported that this is Opera specific. What I was trying to get across is that this method of a pop-up advertising query at entry is a bad one in general, and should be disabled.If you are saying that you were completely unaware that the site caused a pop-up for tapatalk on entry, then it definitely is something to look into, since that's a serious problem. On the other hand if you were aware of it and set it up that way, I suggest that there are better methods of advertising without being as intrusive. In any case this is user feedback. We're on the same side.

Apologies if I seemed hostile. I was not aware of this as I have always used Taptalk to access the site myself. It has been reported by people that do not have Tapatalk installed on their device so my guess is that there is code somewhere in the Tapatalk script producing the popup. I shall look into it.Regards,Mike
