Step 1 – Create or Edit Your Gallery
First you’ll need to either create a new gallery or edit an existing gallery. If you need any help creating your first gallery, please review our documentation here.
Step 2 – Mobile Tab Settings
Next, click over to the Mobile tab and uncheck the Enable Lightbox? under the Mobile Lightbox Settings and click Update on the gallery to save the changes.
This means that Envira will ignore any links in the URL field of the gallery images.
And that’s it! You’ve now disabled the lightbox for your gallery on mobile devices. Would you like to display your captions under your gallery images? Check out our tutorial on how to Display Image Captions Below Thumbnails.
