The version of vbulletin that Sprinter Source is running doesn't like iPads. iPhones work just fine and most sites see iPads as iPhones. Being an Apple fan boy I just had to throw down for the new iPad 3G. So far it is living up to my expectations. I am actually touch typing this on the keyboard. We expect that it will come in very handy during our Sprinter trips.

All you see on an iPad is a text only listing of the forums. That would be fine except I have no way to get a list of new posts.

I see that I can get new posts after further review. The problem is that "new" doesn't keep track of what I have seen despite being logged in.

I added iPad to the exception list. How does it work now?

iPhone was already on the exception list, but it didn't detect your iPad as an iPhone.

Thanks Sikwan it now provides me with an updated "new" list. Still only text with no graphics. I could post a screenshot if you would like. Looking forward to meeting you at the Rocklin MB dealer's dinner next month.

Yeah, it's detecting your iPad as a smart phone and forcing you to see the text version. Let me see...

Oh yeah, I'm not sure if I can make the Rocklin meeting as it's on a weeknight. :cry:

Adjusted some settings, please try again. If not, then I'll have to do more research and dive into the code. Thanks!
