    The issue can be found here: http://greencoconut.nl
    The preview works: Yes
    It works with other themes: Haven't Tried
    It works when I disable all other plugins: Haven't Tried
    Meta Slider version: 2.8

    On Windows Phone 8 swipe works on the website but not on the meta slider element. This creates a navigation and usage problem using the website on Windows Phone 8. Version of Windows Phone is 8.0 with all updates installed.

    This thread suggest adding some CSS.

    Could you try adding this to your themes style.css file?

    .flexslider {
        touch-action: pan-y !important;

    Hi Tom,
    I added this one at a time:
    But with no effects.

    If you swipe on another element and then grab the slider before the motion stops then you can use the swipe. If the page is not moving you cannot touch and swipe to scroll down.

    Best Regards, Gert Jan

    After reviewing Tom's thread-link I read a bit longer into the solutions and links to the Microsoft blogs and discovered that the solution was almost spot-on but missed the correct CSS definition. To be complete and working with Windows Phone 8 it should be:

    .flexslider {
     touch-action: pan-y !important;
     -ms-touch-action: pan-y !important;

    This code is tested and compatible with platform/browsers of type WinPhone8/IEMobile.
