Improved Nifty Slideshows experience for mobile visitors


Improved experience on mobile: buttons added to allow mobile (and desktop) visitors to move around the slideshow.

Before, you could only see the forward, back, pause, resume buttons when you hovered. Mobile doesn't have the concept of hover so although mobile users could see the slideshow, they had no way of using those controls.

I've removed the hover and added buttons underneath the slideshow instead. Now mobile is as good as desktop in this respect.

Any links you already shared on social media will use the new buttons.

If you used the code snippet to put a slideshow on your blogs / websites, then you'll need to regenerate the code snippet and replace what's already there - if you want to improve chances of sales / referrals from mobile.

One does one's best ;)
