Looks like you fixed the light box. Or maybe I never noticed it worked all along. LOL Maybe every image should be openable in a light box and that would solve my issue above, which occurs when photos are included in the body of a posting. The ones that are “separate” (the 5 that get posted with the title in creations) and open in a light box work perfectly as they float over the page including the navbar. If that’s something you fixed then thank you indeed. If I never noticed before then shame on me. ;-)

Thanks for feedback, Brian. Photo lightboxes/zooms are tricky on small mobile screens. The pictures are already almost fully “zoomed in” anyways. I will look into this though.

Mobile friendly is one of the main reasons I come here. And that also explains all of my spelling and grammatical mistakes. LOL.

One question. Sometimes I pinch to zoom in on a photo. Naturally, the entire page zooms accordingly. The problem is that the navigation bar at the top also zooms and because it floats with the top of the screen, it takes up the entire viewable area, making zoom useless to view photos. I’m not sure if this is something that can be fixed and also retain the floating navbar but if there is a workaround that would be great to know.

Debbie, Don.. Thanks from my ipad :)

That’s another side effect L/W. Good point. Just use modern, lightweight browser like Chrome or Firefox and you shoul be good to go even on dial-up. Cheers.
