  1. Button on mobile devices (form)

    I love the Gallery, i would love to add an Paypal Button to it. It works flawless on the Computer. Unfortunately not on mobile devices.

    Any Idea why not? I guess its because if you press the touch screen the captivation disappears?

  3. provide a list of item array properties

    I would like to have (or know where there is) a list of properties that can be added to the items array. for example, the demo talks about the "author" property and says you can add more in that section, but what can be added? How would I know that title: meant caption, etc. I'm sure its in the documentation somewhere but I can't find it.

  4. More access to internal data

    I think many of us would benefit from this.

    I get it that it keeps only 3 slider in html. But we could really use those:

    gallery.nextItem - object with the next item in array - same with prevItem

    gallery.nextItemElement - dom element bound to the nextItem - same with prevItemElement

    gallery.nextItemElementIndex - index of the element in dom 0/1/2

    I have static elements that needs to be added on each slide and those elements must slide with the photo, not be fixed like the photo counter.. I've added some extra js to work this thing out but it would…

  5. jQuery Mobile compatibility

    I would like to see a version compatible to jQuery Mobile.
    Because both CSS use classes like "ui-btn" they don't play along very well. It disturbs the UI quite a bit.

  6. Captions didn't update if accidentally clicked on pictures [solved]

    Comment the lines In photoswipde-ui-default in this method:

    ui.update = function() {
    // Don't update UI if it's hidden

    // the lines commented in this function prevent a bug where the captions wouldn't update if clicked anywhere on the pictures or captions.
    // if(_controlsVisible && pswp.currItem) {

    ui.updateIndexIndicator();

    if(_options.captionEl) {
    _options.addCaptionHTMLFn(pswp.currItem, _captionContainer);

    _togglePswpClass(_captionContainer, 'caption--empty', !pswp.currItem.title);
    }

    _overlayUIUpdated = true;

    // } else {
    // _overlayUIUpdated = false;
    // }

    if(!_shareModalHidden) {
    _toggleShareModal();
    }

    _countNumItems();
    };

    An option to load an X amount of images at a time would be useful for those large galleries.

  8. Anything that might be localized (text, url's) should be taken out of the .js files

    Anything that might be localized (text, url's) should be taken out of the .js files. Not sure what is the better implementation, but may allow us to use json to "feed" the data into the appropriate classes and functions?

  11. Built in option to close modal after last slide

    Pretty sure this doesn't exist at the moment, and I think this would be a good addition.

  12. Image Selection

    Allow the user to select an image in the gallery rather than view a larger version.

  13. SEO Optimized

    I noticed my PhotoSwipe galleries aren't SEO optimized, however the alt-text and description are filled in. But Google can hardly find any of my photos. Is there a better way to make my gallery SEO optimized?

  17. Include DOM gallery builder in JS file

    Please include the initPhotoSwipeFromDOM function shown in http://photoswipe.com/documentation/getting-started.html#dom-to-slide-objects in PhotoSwipe in a JS file. That would make it much easier to get started with a gallery.

  19. Option to move the controls to bottom bar?

    I use a theme with a sticky main menu that expands down. The Photoswipe controls end up under and can't be reached. An option to move the controls to the bottom bar?

  20. Option for specify the order in which images are downloaded

    We have several photoswipe gallery on the page with one visible "main" image. We want to load this "main" images as fast as possible for a good user experience. But now images are loading in standart order as they are placed in the page html-code.

    It would be nice to have the opportunity to download the "main" pictures first, and then all the other pictures of photoswipers.

    Thanks.
