Gallery module on mobile devices
Given the number of mobile devices on the market, as well as the diversity of screen sizes, mobile display is one of the constant challenges for web developers.
At WebSelf, in a Gallery module, the caption of an image is displayed ¨On hover ̈ as configured in the Caption Settings.
However, when the image is ¨enlarged on the click¨, an issue occurs, because it is no longer possible to display the caption. This is a standard on the web for mobile.
If you want to create a gallery containing images with a detailed legend of a product, instead of using a Gallery module, it is recommended to use a separate Image module for each product, in order to create a mosaic; then set up a link in the Image module that will send your visitor to a "Hidden Page" that will contain the details of the product.
