I want to start out by saying that Webflow is awesome, I love working in it, I recommend it to anyone I come near, and I am generally a happy customer. So keep that in mind, because this will sound a little sour:
Are there currently any news on when the lightbox will be fixed, so that it works properly on touch devices?
There are numerous threads on this issue, dating back at least a year+, and people in the community are starting to create their own workarounds (example here, they work for some, but not for all). But, honestly, is this good enough? We are paying for this product, and we only have this one, single gallery option (I’m disregarding the slider in this instance, because it doesn’t provide thumbs or compatibility with multi image fields, which in itself is an issue for another thread.)
This means, that all of us that have clients that require several CMS pages with different/changing numbers of images on each of the pages, will have to tolerate that the mobile/tablet experience is completely broken: Images are not shown in full width on some devices, images are placed weirdly in top right corner on other, everything behaves oddly when going from portrait to landscape, the whole module completely breaks when zooming to pinch, the rows of thumbs are unresponsive or behaves strangely, jumping crazily around, the site in the background scrolls whilst in lightbox mode.
From my client’s POV this is unprofessional and inadequate. I have to side with them, but the blame lands on me, while both they and I keep paying for our Webflow every month. For this specific site we are talking nearly 70% of all visits coming from mobile, which I don’t think is uncommon at all. An unpleasant user experience like this might be a dealbreaker for some, that are considering buying the product(s) sold.
I would love to get an update on when we can expect this to be fixed, so I will have something to tell my clients.
