How to make the JAK Lightbox mobile friendly?

Post by Socrates_mx5 » 21 Sep 2020, 14:29

The JAK Lightbox does not scale down. When viewing on smaller screens, the only thing one moves with the scroll list is the background not the JAK Lightbox viewer. How to make the JAK Lightbox modal to scale down to become mobile friendly?

Hi,

unfortunately, I am not JAK Lightbox developer, so really hard to say. This is much more a question on JAK Lightbox developers.

If you need modern popups, why not to use photoswipe, etc?

Hi Jan,

Thanks for your reply. I've had a quick look for alternatives and found fancybox (http://fancyapps.com/fancybox/3/). It looks like it might be possible to use it with Phoca Gallery. Any ideas about how to integrated fancybox with Phoca Gallery?

Hi, for now I don't have any experiences with fancybox but there are over 10 other methods in Phoca Gallery to select.

Are there any of the other viewers that resize and work on small mobile screens?

I had a further look at realized that Photoswipe already can be chosen as a "Detailed Windows". It works much better on Smartphones. I'm sorry to have bothered you unnecessary.

I'm happy with the use of Photoswipe that works on Smartphones. I also configured Phoca Gallery to show mosaic thumbnail images of the categories that also looks good on Smartphones, when using Image Size: Small folder icon in the Categories View. The only thing that doesn't work as expected is that the thumbnails of the photos are scaled down further then expected. I've made another post in a new thread about this, since it's another issue:
