JomSocial Active


we are using jomsocial 4.5 and i have one question.
Is it possible to zoom into picutes on the mobile view? If i click on a picture it is open in a "lightbox" like window where i can select comments or "like" button but i can not zoom (pinch to zoom) into the picuture.
Is there any solution for this? It would be great because on some images i can not see all details and it would be a good feature to zoom into the picutes.

That feature is more appropriate for a product image not social network site. But, you can try this simple css trick:
To make things clear, add these lines to your css:

.joms-popup--photo .joms-popup__content img {
    transition: -webkit-transform 0.25s ease;
    transition: transform 0.25s ease;
.joms-popup--photo .joms-popup__content img:active {
    -webkit-transform: scale(2);
    transform: scale(2);
and click on image in "lightbox" will get image zoomed in from (at) center no matter where you click. For more controllable feature there would be more complex coding needed.

Images displayed in modal window are displayed to fit your current viewport.
Pinch and zoom won't work for them.
The only solution is to tap and hold - then a context menu will appear and choose "Open image in new tab" to see the details.

- Instead of saying: 'it's not working', explain the problem in detail.
- Screenshots with the URL visible in them and the problem marked are more than welcome.
- Tell us how to replicate the problem, we can't fix it if we can't find it.
- Make sure that your site/server meets JomSocial System Requirements
- Make sure to setup JomSocial Cron Job
- Always provide us with access details to the backend and ftp. We need it to debug problems.
- If you have a similar problem, but a solution you found isn't working, open a new thread instead of 'merging' with an existing one.

- Use the "Thank You" feature on any post that helped you
