Mobile responsive theme and zoom capability

Recommended Posts

The responsive mobile theme built into pagelines is excellent, but there's one thing I'm curious about. 

 

I see that content-width, when viewed from a mobile device, is 100% of the width. And that's great. But many of my readers say that they can't zoom in on pictures. Is there any way to enable them to zoom when viewing from their phone? thanks!

 

if so, could you point me in the right direction as far as CSS selectors and/or anything else you might be familiar with?

If I remember correctly, this is set with the viewport in the HTML meta settings.  You'll want to remove the initial-scale=1.0

 

EDIT:

correction: in every other WP theme that I've found that is responsive, you'd go into the header.php and change the user-scalable=no to "yes" --- but I can't find that in Pagelines Framework.

Have to wait for a mod.

Hi Brightonkeller

 

do you have a link to your website we can see this on? 


The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

Brighton, I just looked at your site on my Samsung Galaxy III and after a rather slow load for all the images, I was able to use the standard method of stretching an image without any difficulty.  I could pinch to shrink, spread to expand with prompt results.  I tried many of the pics on your homepage.

 

Are your customers saying that his happens on a particular type of mobile device, like an iPhone, iPad, Kindle, etc?

Hey Rob,

 

I think most of the viewers that have contacted me are using an iphone. But now I'm more concerned with the slow load time. Shoot. I have been working on my page loading speed for months now and thought I had finally gotten somewhere! ha. I'm using a CDN, smaller images (550px width compressed in photoshop), and limited my number of plugins. Maybe I need to start another discussion top here, but off the top of your head, do you have any immediate suggestions that come to mind? (when you viewed my site)

Hi Brighton

 

I've just tested on an iphone and the images have loaded quite quickly, nothing seemed to take long time, as i scrolled down the pages subsequent images came up the same.

 

The only instance of the viewport/zooming code I can find is in library.templates.php file.

 

Removes viewport scaling on Phones, Tablets, etc.
    if(!ploption('disable_mobile_view', $oset) && !apply_filters( 'disable_mobile_view', '' ))
        echo '<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1" />';

 

I've also found this article in case it helps, I think this explains what the Framework does, it uses css scaling instead of allowing the zoom feature. http://www.hongkiat.com/blog/responsive-for-mobile-screens/


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

      Hi guys,
      every since Chrome introduce scroll anchoring (see chrome://flags) blog posts on my page start scroll automatically as soon as the user scrolls down a bit. It is super annoying and I don't know exactly what triggers the incompatibility with Chrome's latest feature that is supposed to improve usability.
      Since I don't know what causes it (Pagelines, or a Plugin), I would like to disable the feature using a CSS override that Google describes as follow:
      "Scroll anchoring aims to be the default mode of behavior when launched, so that users benefit from it even on legacy content. A CSS property overflow-anchor can disable scroll anchoring in part or all of a webpage (opt out), or exclude portions of the DOM from the anchor node selection algorithm. This property supports the following values when applied to an element E:
      overflow-anchor: auto (the default value) declares that the DOM subtree rooted at E is eligible to participate in the anchor node selection algorithm for any scrolling box created by E or an ancestor of E. overflow-anchor: none declares that the DOM subtree rooted at E is not eligible to participate in the anchor node selection algorithm for any scrolling box created by E or an ancestor of E." Do you guys happen to know how to use that property with the ROOT element so it applies to the whole page?
      Thanks

      Hi,
       
      I have been using DMS and pagelines.
      I am facing to a huge trouble with the appearance of one of my page on mobile (smart phones) built with pagelines.
      However I haven’t come to any solutions to organise either edit the appearance of mobile view to look neat or deactivate the responsive function. 
      Now it looks totally messy on the phone...
       
      1. Is there any way to edit the appearance of the mobile version (responsive theme)?
      2. Is there any way to deactivate responsive function?
       
      If I could receive support from you to go thorough this process I would be happy to be a pro member. 
       
      Looking forward to hearing from you.

      Hi,
      I desperately need to deactivate the responsive function on mobile for reasons. It looks so messy with the responsive look on mobile and not navigating or informative at all as it is. 
      I searched for solutions online and tries some of those that I found but nothing worked out. Also I found a previous post on this forum says that this theme pagelines DMS is not meant to be build to deactivate the responsive function... 
      Also tried with widget such as WPtouch to edit the mobile look a little more informative but as I am using "single page" theme on pagelines, the frontpage(main page) never appears on those app.
      Seems like not compatible?
      If there is no way to deactivate responsive function or I'll have to recreate another page just dedicated for a mobile page? or change the theme completely and build a page from scratch?
      I have been searching for this for two days already...
      Could anyone wise and kind out there, please help me?
       
      Thanks,
