Still no IPad pinch zoom
Posted by JTRACING on Monday, February 08, 2016 7:29 PM

Still not able to zoom in on this site or the scale auto site?

when will this be resolved? If ever lol...

its so much easier to be able to zoom in on the pictures posted rather than have to click each and have them open in new windows to see full size when on a mobile device.

James and Mike,

Because the website is responsive, it disables the pinch and zoom functionality for touch devices because the viewport is fixed.

If a picture is clickable, you can click the photo to open it up in a new window. Because it's isolated outside of the website then the pinch and zoom feature would work.

The regular website works the same way with pictures in articles.

Cheers, Aaron

Ok that's understandable, however I consider that a design flaw as most of us view from some kind of hand held device that is suppose to be efficient and all the extra clicking around is annoying. Just saying lol. I guess I'll get use to it.
