    Gary / Acorn,

    I was thinking something like this Photo Swipe...

    You touch a chosen thumbnail to start, then swipe to view next photo, then X to exit.

    But I am open to other ideas you may have.

    Thanks,
    -Tom

    Tom, here is a quick throw together: JS - Simple Thumbnail Viewer.xar.
    It is only a click event.

    If you want a swipe action then building one would take a fair effort: https://css-tricks.com/simple-swipe-...la-javascript/.

    The simplest might be to place all your images in a horizontal line and have the IFRAME wide rather than tall then you have a swipe and with Highslide JS, a pop-up.

    One possible idea is to use a photo slider (which in Pro v18 or Pro +) supports touch-based horizontal swipe - this transitions through the photos and has navigation to any one from its thumbnail. It also supports auto-scrolling. https://initiostar.co.uk/demo/zNivo/ (top example).

    It's not a widget, but a separate supersite/transitional website that is embedded into the main site; easy to add to it without changing the main site too.

    Getting back to this (had to work on another project)...

    Perhaps, the quickest solution is to use the slideshow as-is. However, the slideshow controls are rather small on the test iPhone I use...


    QUESTION: Is there a way to increase the size of the slideshow controls? (i.e. to make it easier to see and manipulate in mobile variant.)

    Thanks,
    -Tom

    Tom,

    If you are comfortable adding some additional code to your group of images, then take a look at the Highslide APIs http://highslide.com/editor/. Head over to Controls and you will see you can select large icons; in doing so you can see the CSS that could be added to your group of images in the mobile variant.

    View the CSS and apply this to your images. No guarantees - I've not tried it, but it should work.

    Acorn is the wizard at these sorts of things and may have a better idea.

    I will take a look.

    Thanks Gary.

    I played with the Highslide CSS generated by XDPX, but could not get the desired results, as yet.

    More importantly, if I figure it out, I will need to code it as an overriding CSS in a placeholder in order to override the XDPX generated code as I update and export the site. (This needs to ultimately be transferable to the next webmaster without coding external to XDPX.)
