LIghtbox Slideshow Fix for New Interface

With this new Blogger interface, I noticed while visiting other blogs and my own when I went in to check comments via my cellphone, that the lightbox slideshow feature didn't work. On ANY browser. Nor do the images size post correctly to my point of view. So, I went into blogger admin for Hootin' Anni and opened THEME from the left sidebar. After it opened, I clicked on customize and got the dropdown menu. From that point, I clicked on mobile settings and from the radio buttons, I opted for DESKTOP view on mobile phones and SAVED. I then went out to several blogs and my own to take a test run. Once again, the lightbox slide show works perfectly both on desktop AND my phone. I don't know if anyone else has this issue, but I thought I'd share the steps to fix it if you need it. I also learned to tweak the image size to fill out and show crisp and clear text, etc. But, that is a whole 'nother blog tip that involves knowing html coding. In the meantime, if you too have issues with lightbox, here is the 'fix'....

  1. Thank you I noticed since I do almost all my comment on my phone all of what you just said here and that man looks fine on everything except the phone and the the photos look funny so I just did your fix. That'll fix it for other people who look at mine but the ones that I look at that don't look right will not do it so it'll still look funny I don't know why they did that thank you thank you thank you

    1. I am glad this helped. I wish they would have left this old interface a permanent option!!

  2. I rarely read blogs from my phone because I hate trying to comment using the phone keyboard. If I ever decide to start doing that I'll keep this in mind. Of course by then they'll have probably changed blogger again and it will be a whole different ball game.
