Grid Overlay layouts do not display titles on mobile

Recommended Posts

The Grid Overlay layout for portfolios has a problem with its display of titles on mobile. Because the layout relies on the :hover attribute to display the title, this is never triggered on a phone or a tablet.

There are other posts on the forum about this, where workarounds have been suggested--using media queries to always display the title on small screens--but it shouldn't be necessary to add hacks just to get titles to display properly.

Personally, I would consider this a bug in the layout code. Given that for most sites, most visitors will be using a mobile device, there should be a good fallback when there is no mouse to trigger the :hover behaviour.

The other problem with the media query hacks that have been suggested, is that they are only good for a phone, and don't deal well for viewers on an iPad (or other tablet), where the page size can be as big as on a desktop, but there is still no :hover support.
