The site should be accepting photos up to 5mb EACH. If you're having photo upload issues let's start a new thread in this subforum and troubleshoot it.

As far as the mobile app goes, it's sticking around for now. IMHO, the responsive design (accessing the site from your browser) is a much better experience though I admit it still needs some work to eliminate the L to R scrolling, ad sizes, etc. As I said previously, the app will only go away if or when there's a better option available. I won't leave you guys hanging.

Although it just looks like the word tort with colons. No actual tort smiley shows up. Not complaining since I know what it's supposed to be, just saying! :) thanks again.

Well when I would use the tort smiley from my own iPhone emojis it would - but when I'd look at other peoples posts, it would show up like the word with colons.

@Elohi it looks like you're using Tapatalk and not the Tortoise Forum app? You should be able to "like" by tapping on a post then liking from the menu that pops up? The 404 was probably because we had to switch from not using the "www." to using it. The internet sometimes takes a minute to catch up on these changes.

@littledude I see what you mean, I think. I've asked Tapatalk to support custom smileys. Not sure if they'll do it. (maybe another reason to use the responsive design from your browser ;) :) )

There's also a Tortoise Forum app that you can download from your app store by searching for "tortoise forum" in the app store.
