Topic: Embedded SimpleViewerPro galleries - not mobile friendly [SOLVED]
I've got about 500 SimpleViewerPro galleries on my website (http://www.davidfenwick.co.uk/) which are embedded into HTML pages.
Thanks to the Universal Playback feature the images look great on smartphones and tablets. However I recently received a communication from Google, via webmaster tools, stating that these pages had critical mobile usability errors.
I checked out some pages here: https://www.google.co.uk/webmasters/too … -friendly/ and saw that the alerts are being triggered by the text above and below the gallery - it's much smaller than my specified CSS style. The galleries look fine on desktops.
Is this a consequence of the Universal Playback feature? Is there a quick fix to make my pages mobile friendly in the short term?
On further investigation I found that with just a small amount of text on the page (such as: http://www.davidfenwick.co.uk/wedding-p … m-edward/) Google sees the page as mobile friendly - although the text still appears very small on mobile devices (there's obviously some forgiveness). With more text on the page though (such as: http://www.davidfenwick.co.uk/wedding-p … lly-jack/) the page is seen as not-mobile friendly.
Longer term I clearly need to use JuiceBox to produce my pages (but this will take some time to update all 500 galleries!) I had a quick go with the Lite version and this passed Google's mobile usability test:
Again, the very similar SimpleViewerPro version failed due to the text size:
Any help would be hugely appreciated. Mnay thanks in advance.
All the best,
