Text overlay on mobile

Recommended Posts

I notice that when I mouse over a preview image on my desktop site, the working that I've added to the preview settings shows up, but a similar thing does not happen on my mobile.

Is it possible to make the same text appear when touching the preview image on a mobile phone screen?

On mobile devices, there is no concept of hover like there is on desktops. When users tap an element on a mobile device, it typically triggers a click event, preventing hover text from appearing. If you're using code to display critical information on desktop, you'll want an alternative design for mobile users that does not rely on hover effects. Please see this existing thread:
