  • Love this plugin, but the pop up window for the photos (ie where you can press ‘NEXT’/’PREV’) is disproportionately small in the mobile version (at least on an iPhone). It works fine on the iPad.

    Any ideas about how to get these to size correctly on mobile devices?

  • Hello meyerm it does make sense since the iphone is much smaller than the iPad.

    Are you using a mobile plugin or mobile theme?

    Kind regards

    Sorry if I wasn’t clear – it’s disproportionately smaller. In other words, the percentage of screen that the pop up gallery takes up on the iPhone is substantially less than on the computer or iPad. Indeed, it’s pretty much unviewable and there appears to be no way to expand it with a pinch or tap.


    Oh, and I’m using O-Box Azione theme which looks fine on mobile devices, it’s just this particular plugin (Catablog) that does not.

    Hi meyerm, thank you for making it more clear what your problem is.

    I am currently using Suffusion theme, wptouch and CataBlog. It works great in my iphone.

    I think in your situation it is a theme and plugin compatibility issue.

    Kind regards

    It could have to do with many different factors, including:

    – The padding/margins of the body tag
    – The aspect ratio of the images you are uploading
    – The final calculated resolution of the site on the mobile device

    I would recommend trying another theme or modifying your current theme. Another solution would be to hack the catablog-lightbox.js file in CataBlog. The problem with the later solution is that any updates will overwrite your changes.

    Good luck and let me know if you interested in more specific instructions on hacking catablog-lightbox.js.
