    Accessing the Forum and Sharing Posts on Mobile Devices

    There are at least two ways to access this forum from a mobile device:

    1. The vBulletin software that runs the Local Search Forum includes a default mobile style that you can access on any mobile device.
    2. A better option is using the free app, Tapatalk:



    To share a post from Tapatalk:

    • Tap any post
    • You will get a popup menu saying Quote | Like | Thank | More
    • Tap More and you will get another set of options: Share | Report | Multi-Quote | Moderate | Edit | Web View
    • Tap Share and you'll get a list of options include Twitter, Facebook, email, Google+, Pocket, and more. This may depend on your device but that's what I see on iPhone or iPad.


    To share a post from the default vBulletin mobile style:

    On the regular mobile viewer, it's a bit more awkward but it can be done.

    • Access a post in your browser
    • Press and hold a post and then select/highlight a portion of the post (doesn't seem to work with just a word)
    • Tap that portion and then tap Share
    • The usual options for sharing will now pop up (as above with Tapatalk)

    Thanks so much for writing that up for us David. I know a couple people have asked where the share buttons were on mobile. So that was very helpful.

    To be honest, I don't know why it didn't occur to me to do it earlier. I know it took me a while to find those features on Tapatalk...
