    Strange how this keeps coming and going.
    Only happens to the addons not the stock smilies, I haven't logged in via ftp to see your changes to folder locations.

    Interesting I see they are in 2 different folders which by itself shouldn't make a difference as they are both under same
    parent folder.
    I do note you used short form path instead of the full path in the image location path, only difference from before.
    Of course they are back now. lol

    Yeah that's what I'm having trouble with. Sometimes it works for me and sometimes it doesn't.
    I've done everything I know to fully change all the paths. I really think I need to do a fresh install and migrate all the data... some add-on I have is likely causing a conflict.

    I know the custom smilies add-on had an issue with double / instead of just one /

    Yeah I was going to ask you about the double /, I noticed in some but not all of the .gifs.

    Which confuses the fuck out of me because it should be consistent!

    I will retry the app on my iPad when it is on the app store, because that will bypass itunes. :apple:

    No go on apple app... I still need to make it a more unique experience -.-

    Anyways, here's a new mobile theme. I will have this disabled for tablets soon, so tablets can view the site without being forced to view the mobile theme. Most tablets that I've tested, can handle the forum (some may require you to disable the chat bar).

    I have to see if there's a way to only DETECT an app lmao and not a mobile device...
    If I can detect that the user is viewing through the app, then they are transported to a unique theme.
    I've heard push notifications don't even help make the cut. It's dumbbbbbb

    Surely the guys at stackoverflow will have something on that if it is a requirement.

    Well, some just say keep trying. Try to make it as native as possible. If I have static pages, then make those native pages. If I can get the data on the app (which I've been trying) and make it 'native', then do it.

    Most people were suggesting that apple is very picky about appearance. SO I'm still guessing that I may be getting rejected because of the generic forum structure and mediocre theme.

    SOME people have said that I need to get over it and ask my users to just "bookmark" the site -.-
    That's not what I want, damnit!

    Would it not be just like detecting a browser ID if you put a unique app id in the header?
    Then just make an Apple fanboy theme. lol
    Sure would be nice if they gave you all the rules and means to do it up front. smh

    Another thing, who are they to say what your theme should look like?
    Isn't that up to the user to decide? If they don't like it they don't use it right?
    I don't get it, ios forum apps like tapatalk and forum runner have no special look, just plain.
    Maybe a bunch of emails from user of the site to them that want the app would help?

    Well tapatalk and forum runner and utilizing xcode style... *it's ugly and I hate it*
    It's kinda uniform and bleh... I'd rather stray from it, but they're forcing me towards it.
    I think if they can bend rules for sites like facebook, then they should bend rules for everyone.

    WHO KNOWS? Maybe it's in the ToS that "sites with 1 billion users are allowed to put up whatever shit they want." lol

    I've never tried retrieving the browser info for an app before. I might try it out.

    Greetings. As a suggestion, can you provide a link to the desktop site (maybe on the bottom like some sites have)? I enjoy viewing the desktop version on my mobile device. I do use Chrome which has a "request desktop site" button in the menu. But, it might convenient for others that might not use Chrome. Thanks :)
