Alignment issue with PanoBox using iPad and iTouch
  • Hi,

    I am using the Weaver II 1.1.4 WordPress template as a base for a new project.

    Everything works fine with PanoPress except when I test the project on an iPad and iTouch. The panorama opens up, but I have to scroll down the page to view it. Here's the link:

    How can I fix this problem? Thanks in advance.
  • Hi, It should be noted that I have switched over to the Prose Theme by Genesis. I still have the same issue. Nevertheless, I do not have the problem with Genesis's Manhattan theme. Any suggestions?

    most likely it is something in the theme CSS which is interfering with the panobox position, the easiest solution is of course to use a theme that does not interfere, otherwise if you can list w links the themes that do and do not work properly with panobox on ipad we can try to figure out a fix

  • Hi Sam,

    I am working with StudioPress's Genesis Prose for the base template of a project I am developing. As per your request, please find below the link to my project and information about Genesis Prose:

    The problem that I am having is that when I press the "play" button to view the panorama using the iPad and iTouch, the panobox goes to the vertical center of the page. For example, on the homepage, the top panorama will drift down below the viewable part of the screen to the vertical center. Also, it should be noted that:

    A. The full screen button to view my panorama no longer operates using the iPad. However, it works on a computer as it uses the swf file default instead of its html5 counterpart.

    B.  I had to restrict the size of the panorama from full screen to a set size as the panorama would open up to an extremely large size where I would only see a portion of the panorama, which I would also like to resolve.

    It should be noted that the panoramas play fine when I am using a computer. In this case, it is using the swf file instead of its html5 counterpart.

    Nevertheless, I would like to note that the html5 PanoPress settings on an iPad appear to be working fine with StudioPress's Genesis Manhattan theme.

    I would appreciate any help that you can give me and would be more than happy to pay you a modest  fee for helping me resolve these issues.

    Thanks again for your hard work in creating the PanoPress plugin as it is a very useful one for my endeavors.

    Best Regards,

    Hi Seth,

    I believe the problem is with the use of frames, Javascript and iDavices not always play nice with them.

  • Hi Omer,

    What is the best way to resolve the problem? This is holding me up from developing the project as I want to make the project playable on the computer and mobile devices. Please let me know at your earliest convenience.
  • Hi Sam and Omer,

    BTW, I noticed that with IE9 that there is a conflict between MapPress Easy Google Maps and PanoPress plugins causing for the panoramas not to work. When I deactivated the MapPress Easy Google Maps plugin, the panoramas worked in IE9. However, it did not fix the issues on the iPad.

    I hope this helps with your future endeavors. If you know of way to resolve the IE9 issue, please let me know. Thanks again fro all your efforts.


    P.S. If you can help me with my alignment issue or provide further insight on how I might resolve the issue it would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Seth,

    If the goal is to host two separate sites under the same wordpress server, read this:

    if not, you can install dedicated wordpress server under or simply use a section of your main site:

    * Some IE issues fixes will be included in the next release of pp, not sure it the  MapPress problems are related though.

  • Hi Omer and Sam,

    I am happy to report that I was able to resolve the issue of the panobox going to the vertical center of the page when viewed on an iPad. I thought I would share it with you and others just in case someone else encounters the same problem.

    The domain name fowarding with masking was causing the problem. Once I simply changed the "domain name forwarding with masking" to simply "domain name forwarding" it resolved the issue.

    As for the IE9 problem, it did not resolve the other issue that I encountered. Hopefully, your next update will resolve the conflict between MapPress Easy Google Maps and PanoPress plugins causing for the panoramas not to work in IE9.

    Thank you again for your help. I hope this information helps with your future troubleshooting endeavors.

    Best Regards,
