Support » Plugin: Lightbox with PhotoSwipe » Get swipe actions with touchscreen PC?

  • I’m enjoying the plugin, and it works well on my phone, enabling easy swipe and pinch gestures to navigate, zoom, or close photos. But can we also get those gestures to work on a touchscreen pc (windows 10 with firefox is my usual setup) displaying the blog? When I try to swipe on the pc screen, the top border and arrows disappear and won’t come back, so the only way out of the slideshow is to hit escape (or if I’m in tablet mode on my windows pc, I have to keep clicking the edges of the photos to get to one that has blank space around it so I can click in the blank space to close the show).

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    When nothing happens when you try to swipe, this means the browser will just ignore the touch gesture. Maybe you should try a different browser, just to be sure that it’s not just the Firefox ignoring the touch events. At least I would try Edge and Chrome for comparison.

    I don’t have a Windows 10 based touch device available, so there is little I can do here, sorry! But if ever have a chance to use such a device I’ll have a look into it.
