Lightbox position? (5 posts)

    I'm using the included wppa lightbox.
    This is in regard to the thumbnail and slideshow views of the lightbox.
    When viewing in a mobile device (smart) the lightbox pop up appears in the upper left corner of the screen and needs to be adjusted manually for both position and size.
    If a thumbnail further down on the thumbnail page is clicked it isn't evident that the lightbox has popped up since it is way up in the left top corner.

    I've tried another lightbox plugin that is supposed to resize automatically and it loads in the visible screen but is MUCH less responsive - the arrows are not visible without resizing manually and navigation requires more readjustment. Your lightbox remains in the position after adjusted.

    My question is... am I missing a setting to force it to pop up in the center of the mobile phone screen?

    I looked at the shortcode examples and I see "center" but does that apply to the lightbox?

    Thanks very much for the wonderful plugin.

    I recognize the problem. Pls tell me what plugin you tested that centered on the screen ( as opposed to the browser window as wppa does ). I want to learn from it how it detects that its running on a smartphone. Centering on the screen i can implement, but that is not useable for a pc, so i need the info, see?

    The lightbox plug in that centers the image on the phone screen is

    I am using the "dark" theme. It overflows horizontally and the navigation arrows seem difficult to use on a phone. That can probably be fixed with CSS or perhaps another theme selection but I don't want to use that lightbox with the WPPA. In fact, I would love to also use the WPPA lightbox all over the site with regular media library contents. Is that even possible?

    Thanx for the info, i can study it now.

    If you put rel="wppa" in the <a > tag that surrounds the <img > tag.
