Foliovision Forums FV WordPress Flowplayer Troubleshooting Slider broken on iPad

  • Hello,

    I have a site with Pravda WordPress template. It includes photo sliders which stop working on iPad when I enable your plugin.

  • Hello Andrew,

    I’ll sum up what did we figured out when looking directly at your site.

    The JavaScript event window onload ( jQuery(window).load ) doesn’t fire on iPad when our plugin is activated. We don’t usually work with this hook on our sites, but it’s an important one. It happens also on bare bones Flowplayer, so we will look for the solution.

    In the end, we put in a workaround into the plugin. It triggers the window onload event and is only effective in iPhone, iPod and iPad. This will be released in 2.1.14.

    Now your sliders on your site work on iPad.


    Hello all,

    the workaround in our plugin works and helps our users.

    It turns our that on iOS 8 this is still an issue. If there is a HTML5 video tag, then the iOS 8 browser waits for it to load before it fires the window.onload event.
