    For the most part, my website works fine on my android cell phone, but when I open a gallery page and click on one of the photos, the slideshow doesn’t function properly. It looks like there’s two photos stacked on top of each other and you can’t really go to the next picture.

    The blog I need help with is danielshainmedia.com.

    When viewing your site on my iPhone, it appears you are using WP.com’s mobile theme and not the themes responsive styles. More info on enabling disabling this below:

    That said, the gallery lightbox functionality is a WP.com feature and not specific to the theme. It appears the gallery on the page linked below is loading the gallery fine for me using Google Chrome on my iPhone. Does it work for you?

    Just took of WP.com’s mobile theme, and now I’m using your theme’s responsive styles for mobile. Also, I looked at my site on an iPhone and the gallery work fine. I think I have problems on my phone because it’s an old android HTC Sensation. I’m using Chrome, but do you think my phone’s age could be the problem? As long as the site works on up-to-date phone’s and browsers, then I’m happy.

    I just tested the gallery again with the Debut responsive styles activated and the gallery works as expected. My guess is the issue is with the older phone and not having the update browsers or scripts needed to work properly, though I can’t be 100% sure.

    Interestingly enough, I just downloaded Firefox on my phone and the gallery looks fine in that browser. I’m guessing the browser my phone comes with is the problem. The generic “Internet.” I’m not even sure if it’s chrome or not. Bottom line is, the gallery works for Firefox, on your IPhone’s Chrome (and Safari as well I guess?), so I’m a happy camper. You’ve been very helpful!
