Images do not rotate on iPhone

I now have my gallery just about ready to show the world, other than one watermarking question I posted a few minutes ago.

However, when I bring it up on an iPhone, I see that the image displays do not detect phone orientation and rotate accordingly.  That is, if I come to a landscape image, I rotate the phone to landscape mode, but the image remains firmly in portrait orientation.

Doesn't Backlight support device orientation detection?

To be clear, I have clicked the first image while my phone is held vertically.  I then swipe to a photo such as the flying goldfish (very wide image) and rotate my phone to horizontal.

The image does not rotate on the phone.

Re: Images do not rotate on iPhone

your images rotated on my iPhone 6. Have you tried clearing browser cache?

hmmm... It doesn't rotate on my iPhone 5.   I just tried it on my wife's iPhone 6, and it _does_ rotate there...?

I also see that when she runs Chrome on her iPhone 6, the menus do not show up (the ones created in CE4 on the main page).  I had to switch to Safari to use my site on her phone (I default to Safari on mine).

Re: Images do not rotate on iPhone

Whether or not your display rotates is a software issue to do with your device, and fully nothing to do with Backlight, Photoswipe, etc. First thing I'd check is whether you have orientation locked on your phone. But regardless of whether it's locked or not, this is nothing to do with Backlight.

Bingo!  Didn't even know about that lock, but I must have clicked it by mistake.  Just Googled "iphone rotation lock" and found where the control is. Turned it off, and it now rotates properly on my phone too.

Thanks.  And please mark this as resolved.
