Some have had success clicking 'ok' which takes you to the app store. You don't need to buy it just follow link once.

Hope works for you.

Correct. It stops pestering you if you follow the prompts to see the app in the App Store (don’t get it unless you want it), then return to the forum.

Most annoying.

And just what is JavaScript in the browser?
I like Smiley's, I just don't want a sodding great screen telling me to use tapatalk every time I switch to the cuk forum

It's a way for websites to make your browser run simple programs that do things like display a sodding great screen telling you to use tapatalk. There's usually something in the browser settings like "Enable Javascript" that can switch it off - on some browsers (Firefox for example), you can enable it for selected sites, but if you enable it for this forum at all, I think the tapatalk banner will kick in.

I often switch it off for most sites, partly to improve security and partly because people have a bad habit of using it to move things around while I'm trying to click on them, which is very annoying as I can't control the pointer precisely quickly because my hands shake.

Cheers. That might be useful if there was some way I could find browser settings. Nowt in setting tab.

In my ipod its in settings, safari, then scroll down to JavaScript where you find the option to turn it off. I turned mine off but it stopped all sorts of other things like videos and links from web pages so i turned it back on.

I occasionally clear all cookies and after this i always get the tapatalk invite until i go to the app store from the link. :cry:

I simply no longer use the site when away from a laptop, Tapatalk renders it unusable.

Just accept once but don't upload.
Ie. just close app store straight away again when it appears.
Site then behaves on an iphone just as on a laptop.
If you remove all cookies at any time then the procedure must be repeated.
Simple and works great.
