Since the last upgrade we've now been able to enable some new features and get them working properly. You can now install Land Cruiser Club as an application on your phone or computer.

Benefits include:
  • you'll get notifications when someone replies (you can turn that off if you wanted to)
  • easier uploading of images to your posts
  • less hassle opening the site
  • reduction in covid cases (they are, after all, reduced!)

On your phone:

1. Open the website in your favourite browser
2. Click on the 3 dots top right hand corner
3. Click on the option "Install as app"

4. Confirm you want to by clicking on the Install link
5. Now you should have a new icon on your home screen with the Land Cruiser Club logo. Use that from now on to browse the forum.

Done. Thanks Crispin.

For those using the standard Samsung browser on a Samsung phone, you might not have 3 dots on the top right hand corner. I installed by clicking on the down arrow by the URL, circled in yellow in the attached pic. Other browsers may vary

Thanks Reinhard!

The push notifications now also enabled so it pings your phone when someone replies to your message.

Hi Crispin, does this work on an iPad as I can’t seem to find the dots like I did on my desktop?

I've just had a look Andy - it seems iPad is slightly different. You can add to home screen as a shortcut but that still opens in Safari.
Chrome, on the iPad, seems a bit better according to the posts I've read.

Let me dig into it a bit more on the kid's ipad and see (I don't know much about them)
