Hi,

I am hoping you can help me out.

Here’s the situation.

When I am viewing my website on a mobile phone ( I have a droid), when I am scrolling though the thumbnail images on the main portfolio page, if my finger touches (clicks) any of the images while I am trying to scroll down, then it takes me to that project page.

While I understand that it’s probably working as designed, I am not really happy with that functionality, because it makes it difficult to scroll through the images without accidentally being taken away from that page.

There is virtually no white space on either side of the thumbnails, and thus the only place I can safely put my finger to scroll down without clicking into the project is on the small space below the image where the title appears.

Is there any way I can require the thumbnail image to be clicked twice on a mobile device or something of that nature in order to enter into that page?

That way a user can scroll through the thumbnails and if their thumb hits one of the images while scrolling down, that it doesn’t take them to that page.

I searched through the message board, and It looks like you removed that functionality at some point.

I found a post where someone was complaining about having to click twice on an iphone. Looks like some update was going to change the functionality and remove the double clicking….

But in my situation, I am looking to have it function with a double click required on phone size mobile devices, where only 1 thumbnail across fits.

My site is: http://www.colleensweeney.com

Please see below for that post, and your response:

1. I’ve noticed that the hover effect you have on thumbnails that is the solid colour with a cross, causes you to have to press the image twice to go to the page (on iPhone at least) – first to bring up the cross and again to go through – feels like it dodnt work first time around.

I havent investigated the code but I think this is because IOs captures all javascript onhover calls and converts them to onclick events – so what is a hover effect on desktop with a click through, becomes a double click to obtain a click through on mobile.

1. Yes, correct. There is an easy fix for this. I’ll dump into the next update. $(’.portfolio-entry-img-link’).on(‘click touchend’, function(e) { var el = $(this); var link = el.attr(‘href’); window.location = link; }); You should need to load this using wp_is_mobile();

Thank you. Colleen

You are 100% correct, this should be fixed. Send me a private message Collen for the updated file to test. Please link to this original comment so I know what you require.

Hi, I sent you a private message a few days ago. Just wanted to touch base and see when you might be able to help me resolve this?

Thanks!

Hi there,

We like the theme :) but wanted to ask a few questions before we purchase in order to check its suitability for our client if that’s OK?

1. Home page slideshow: is it possible to add videos as well as images? 2. Is there a fixed width option? I can only see full width on the preview. And if so, is it possible to add a background image? And if so, is is possible to change the background image for different pages? 3. Can we change our logo on different pages? We have 3 logos for 3 sections of the site.. 4. On the portfolio description page, is is possible to mix video and images in the slideshow or does it have to be images OR video?

Many thanks indeed,

Best wishes, Andrea

Hi,

Thank you for your help in resolving my last issue.

I have one more question for you that I am hoping you can help me with.

I am using the blog page as a place to post patterns and artwork that I make on a regular basis. Like daily posts of artwork.

I am noticing however that the image of the artwork that is displayed on the base blog page for each entry appears a bit blurrier then the actual image that I upload.

When I click on the image, it opens in lightbox and appears clear, crisp, and as it should.

However on the blog page itself, it doesn’t appear that way.

It’s almost as if there is some sort of filter or slight blur being applied to the image.

I am imagining that maybe it was a stylistic effect applied that might be more better suited for actual photographs.

But I am using the blog for artwork so that effect is not optimal.

Here’s the page for your reference. http://colleensweeney.com/patterns/

Is there anyway to remove the blur?

Thanks !
