    1) Go to Safari and bring up marathonstadium.com.

    2) Select the arrow down the bottom of the screen to bring up the options.

    3) Select "Add to Home Screen".

    4) Wait a second if neccessary, while the site logo appears. For the text, it takes 11-12 characters, so Marathon is a good option.

    5) Select "Add" and hey presto, your own custom link to the site, logo and all. It should look like below, in the bottom right-hand corner. :)

    I know you guys have a mobile version of the site, and it's come in handy. :)

    I wish you would install the Taptalk plugin, I use it for MediaSpy, it's the balls. :thumbsup: But until you do, the mobile version is just as good.

    I have seen that option on other forums bigdan, but I'm not too familiar with it.

    Has anyone else done this yet? I gotta say it's a real handy way to get to the forum quickly!

    I was wondering, would it be better to put the logo that's on the banner on the top of the Forum to be the logo instead of that tick thing? Just a thought.

    What do you see on yours? When you are creating the shortcut, just wait a few secs for the forum logo to load. I'll post a screenshot of when it should look like in a second.

    It's like a square root sort of sign in a navy blue square?

    Hmm, you've got the ugly vBulletin logo, somehow. I've put a screenshot above of how it should look. Try again, but just wait a few moments and see if the proper logo appears.

    For James and anyone else, here's the site: http://www.tapatalk.com/

    W
    orks on all mobile OSes, can be put on vBulletin, and is free to do. You can create your own app, but it does cost a bit.

    I've updated the instructions on how to do this, with screenshots. Now is a good time to do it, since the address of the forum is slightly changing! :)
