Fix widths for WPTouch compatibility (6 posts)

    I love this plugin, as does nearly everybody else that has used it. However with the sharp increase in mobile internet usage, this plugin seems to be falling behind to curve of mobile integration. I am using WPTouch for generating a mobile platform for a few of my websites, the NextGen Gallery slideshow and Picture List is stretching my WPTouch layout too wide (Android & Windows Mobile). Other than that the functionality of the plugin is functional.

    How would it be possible to resize the slideshows and picture lists in mobile devices?

    If this issue with the lack of responsiveness is not addressed, and soon with the next release, then I have no other choice but to go with a different plugin for my galleries and slideshows. I am certain many other loyal users of NextGen are drawing the same conclusion. Who has the time to wait around for NextGen to catch up to the trend towards mobile-friendly/responsive functionality? Not me... It's a shame. What was once such a good plugin is now lacking so much in terms of mainstream functionality with the current internet trends.

    WPtouch Pro allows you to apply custom styling through the use of child themes and CSS so, if you so desired, you could create a stylesheet to handle tweaks to your NextGen Gallery containers, etc. WPtouch Pro and NextGen Galleries are a successful combo for many of our customers. Just putting that out there for consideration.

    That would be sufficient for my purposes in the short term. However I am in the process of migrating all of my personal project websites to responsive themes, so having a solution for NextGen coupled with WPTouch (Pro) is not alone sufficient. With the responsive themes WPTouch will no longer be utilized. I would rather not have to continue to customize NextGen every time there is an update or I make a new website when there are many comparable emerging image galleries/slideshows that have responsiveness already integrated in the plugin. That's why I had hoped to get the NextGen developer to recognize the issue and do something about it.

    Hi, I'm having the same problem with my websites. I'm using a responsive child theme and I would like my nextgen gallery images to be responsive like my theme. Can anyone tell me what sort of coding I need to add in order to do this. As this is throwing off the whole layout of my websites on smart phones. I'm surprised Nextgen developers haven't gotten on to this yet.

    Web_Aesthetics,

    That sounds like a question for the NextGen folks. However, in WPtouch Pro you can use its custom CSS feature to override some of the NextGen styles and make the galleries 'fluid' in width.
