    Any way to disable to highly annoying tapatalk ad banner on Firebox for Android? I tried tapatalk a while back and I dislike it. This banner takes up too much screen space.

    Totally agree. many sites now do that. It's the most annoying banner I've seen and I don't ever wanna come near that app so I don't want to be reminded of it EVER.

    The users who use Tapatalk obviously have it installed on their phone and the ones who don't obviously don't care for it.

    From what I read there is a couple lines of code to add to block the banner on the board.
    The admins need to do that though.

    I found these on the web. I think the bottom links are specific to Xenforo. While the top link and lines are for phpbb. I know very little about programming..

    https://www.dirtriverdesign.com/remove-tapatalk-banner-phpbb/
    Copied from the above link...
    ---------------------------------------
    Find the Following File:

    /mobiquo/smartbanner/head.inc.php
    Find this line. (It is currently around line 205, but moves version to version)
    $app_head_include .= $app_banner_head;
    Comment it out.
    //$app_head_include .= $app_banner_head;
    (you can do this in CPanel or a text editor and save over the file via ftp)
    Also, make sure you “Purge the cache” on the general tab in the PHPBB Administrator Control Panel.
    I have seen some other people delete appbanner.js as an alternative to the method above, but I think that could result in an error. Do it at your own risk.
