Frequently Asked Questions

The Basics

What is Owl?

Owl is like Outlook for message boards or Tapatalk for the desktop. It provides a single interface for all of your message boards.

What boards work with Owl?

This is a tough question with no simple answer. Our intention is to make Owl work with as many message boards as possible. Currently Owl will work any message boards that use Tapatalk, Xenforo and vBulletin 3.8 or above. However there are exceptions to these since some boards have heavily customized interfaces which may prevent Owl from working.

What do the following errors mean?

"No board could be found"

This message means that Owl could not find any message board it could understand.

"The forum structure of the messageboard could not be determined."

Owl was likely able to log into the board but it was able to get a list of forums and sub-forums. This is often the result of heavy customization of the message board that may make it incompatible with Owl.

"There was an unexpected error while configuring the board"

This can be caused by a poor connection to the Internet or a malfunctioning server.
