WP jQuery Lightbox
Doesn't work on my mobile phone (9 posts)

    Hi,
    I've been using this plugin for a while. It looks good on safari, chrome, explorer, etc. But I just got the samsung galaxy 3 yesterday, and the lightbox doesn't work. The image pops up but goes dark like the background does and is almost impossible to see. Any suggestions for this? A solution like, "install chrome as your mobile browser" won't help me, as I'm more concerned about my viewers being able to access my portfolio without having to jump thru hoops.

    Thanks,

    Hi. I checked your site out and noticed your gallery is displaying the way I want my gallery to display on mobile phones ie the pic resizes in the browser.

    How did you fix the problem? cheers.

    lonelyboy,
    i checked your link, http://brucescott.co.uk/?page_id=2
    and i've seen thumbnails and that's what i want to do with my gallery too. yours is responsive. mine is not - the thumbs kept piling up in-line.

    what are the codes / short codes did you use?
    thanks!

    Is anyone else having this problem and capable to debug for me? Or send me a Galaxy S3 to test on. :)

    Hi there, I just run into the same problem. Image shows up in the background and everything above goes dark...
    Plugin works really nice everywhere except on the latest android with/or android browser. It works on some old android devices, but not on a new one with all the latest updates... It even works with emulated devices that you can set up with android SDK. I tried other lightbox editions and most of them does the same. Could it be some bug of the latest android browser?

    Thanks.

    I've got a One X but can't for the life of me find the default browser. I run Chrome, but the "original" is called Browser or Internet or somesuch right?

    Does anyone know if I can get the standard browser back from Google Play?

    Hi,
    I don't know much about android, but the "original" browser is called Browser, check out it's icon here:

    I've no idea where to find or download it if missing, I thought it's there by default like mobile safari on iOS...

    Exactly, there's supposed to be a 'Browser' app somewhere, but it's not on my phone. And searching for 'Browser' in the Play store is ... pretty silly. :)

    Ah, nevermind. I had actually disabled the stock browser in the app settings.

    So - here's what I've tested (on HTC One X+, stock)
    - "Internet", version 4.5.491575: The lightbox works well
    - Chrome, version 18.0.1025469: Also works well
