    Hi Patrick,
    Thanks for this plugin!

    I managed to create the slider and I’ve added @media element to my CSS to optimise the mobile version. However, it seems that there are a couple of issues with the phone version.

    The first one is that you can’t scroll with your finger (move vertically the page) when you are over the slider and it seems the page gets stuck. I saw this comment https://wordpress.org/support/topic/still-an-issue-to-slide-on-a-smartphone/. As for that entry, this issue should be solved, but I’m getting the same problem. Should I change anything to solve it?

    The second issue is that the links do not work on phone. I’ve added #_EVENTURL AND #_EVENTLINK to the slider and, while it works on desktop version, it does not work on phone. Is there any solution for this?

    Many thanks!

    The EM placeholders are rendered only once. SO if they show on desktop they should also show on mobile. There is absolutely no different code for desktop or mobile. 😉

    A slider works (just like a map) sort of like an iframe => the content is loaded from a different place/source. Just make sure the slider does not cover the whole page (max height 75% for example), leaving room for fingers to scroll the page.

    while it works on desktop version, it does not work on phone

    What does not work? Is the placeholder not rendered or is the literal placeholder shown?

    Thanks Patrick. I will give a percentage to the width to avoid it covers the whole page.

    Re the placeholders, it is not rendered properly.
    For instance, I am using
    #_EVENTIMAGE and <h3>#_EVENTNAME</h3>

    They both work well on desktop, and also when you use the Inspect button on a desktop, but not on a phone (I have tested in different Androids).

    Many thanks
