Does this mod delete or remove tapatalk signature permanently? If I uninstall it will the sigs come back?

Removed ones can't come back.

New Version 1.0.1

I've updated the code to require "Sent from my" string to appear in the final line of a post not just "Sent from" this should reduce unintended deletions.

From existing posts made before you installed the mod it merely hides the signatures, they still exist in the text in the database.

For posts made after you install the mod the signature text is blocked from even being saved with the post.

If you ever disable/remove this mode signatures will come back in the posts made before it was installed but not on the posts made after it was installed.

Great work - that's fixed it!

Downloaded the top one for Vb 4.x in case anyone is wondering which one to download

The 101 version is the latest version, that is the one I suggest using. You can download it and upgrade to it by importing it with allow-override set to yes.

Important Note: After discussions with various people I am no longer certain this mod upholds the values I usually support. It can be argued this mod is removing branding another developer had put into their mod, and like I wouldn't create a mod that removes branding from say DbTech mods, perhaps this mod goes too far.

I am not removing the mod for the time being but I am not supporting it any further either.

I would urge people who do not want to see Tapatalk signature in every post either purchase their plan or remove Tapatalk completely. I will not do any further work on this mod nor support it unless I get affirmative consent from Tapatalk to do so.

Sorry.

Thanks for the update.. :)

It is SPAMMER operation out of China .. :rolleyes:

We started with them when they first opened up under a business premise that no longer exits.

They pulled a bait and switch on forum owners by saying that they would only be using a "paid" client model, with a free trial of a client model.

Once they obtained some critical mass, they pulled this ads scam on everyone... :mad:

We have 27,000 members with a few hundred who use Tapatalk and we're considering discontinuing supporting their client code. We're providing Tapatalk free access to our members who are providing them free revenue off their backs, with no passed on remuneration to the board owner or any of its members.

Don't feel guilty... ;)

You've provided a valuable service to the our community .. :up:

Regards,
Doug

Not sure if you know much about Tapatalk but they steal user information and even paying for their app does not remove signatures. By default they are on.

Their app has plenty of branding beyond the signatures. Like you said in your app description, Tapatalk spam. That is what it is.

Besides, at this time Tapatalk app users can put whatever they like in their signatures via the "custom" setting thus negating any Taptalk branding. At the end of the day it is just a $10 hustle.

They have legitimate branding on their app and if they wanted same on the forum proper they would put it in the footer, like everyone else.

It can be "argued," sure. But that argument doesn't stand up to any scrutiny - there was NEVER a agreement between TT and site admins to allow any type of spam or branding on their sites. The argument isn't valid since most all branded mods we can example, had the branding AT THE BEGINNING and don't add it later, slipping it in after many installs.

You're doing nothing wrong here and you're not violating any values.

While I appreciate the kind words this thread isn't for debate of Tapatalk's business model. Please keep any further responses on topic of this mod. I'm not debating the issue here.

Hi,
nice Mod :)
But is there an Option to make it Multilanguage or put an Second Variable in the Plugins?
I have Users with English Language and German.
In German the Signature likes " Gesendet von meinem M2 mit Tapatalk"
I would put this "Gesendet von meinem" in the Replacevariable too.
1. Plugin

BirdOPrey5 I understand your position on this however let me give you mine. Tapatalk is attempting to extort a $10 per month fee to not spam our forums. They have provided no additional value to justify this monthly fee. This is the most garbage fee I have seen and this mod is the best I have seen in my history here at vb.org. I added it to all of my forums a month ago and I want to thank you very much for creating this mod!
