It appears to be an option that you kind folks can enable? It's active when I go to Archery Talk but disappears here and it doesn't show up under the Tapatalk configure menu here but does there... which makes me think it's a vbulletin setting or something?

If so, would ya mind turning it on? Please and thank you:)

The reason tapatalk searching is disabled is that TFL doesn't use the standard vb3 search system. Tapatalk has its own wrapper around vbulletin's search functionality, which would need to be modified to use sphinx.

For now, the alternatives are to use the normal web interface to search, or search with google ("site:thefiringline.com keyword1 keyword2").

All you mobile users, what are your impressions of vbulletin 4, if you've got impressions from other sites that use it?

Hm, ok. Thanks.

vBulletin 4? Can't say as I've noticed any thing different.

I have been using tapatalk on this forum and all the other forums I am active in since I downloaded the app. The only forum I can't use it with has been trapshooters.com and the only reason I'm inactive on there is because tapatalk Isn't compatible.
