I’ve updated from 1.2.9 to 1.4.2 using the Twelve theme
(galleria-1.4.2.js, galleria-1.4.2.min.js and
galleria.twelve.min.js). I’ve tried every new version except the
last one or two and have always had to fall back to 1.2.9 because
the scrolling/transitions on different devices are not smooth,
sometimes to the point of not being usable. It varies with the
device and the browser but it is apparent on all except internet
Here are the following device/browser results:
PC desktop workstation:
Firefox 33.0: relatively but not entirely smooth (not as good as
Chrome 38: relatively but not entirely smooth (a bit better than
Firefox but not as good as 1.2.9)
Internet Explorer 11: very smooth (the best of all options and full
screen now works – thanks)
2014 Retina Macbook Pro:
Firefox 33: not entirely smooth (1.2.9 was perfectly smooth)
Chrome 38: very smooth (the best of all options – equal to IE 11 on
Safari 8: not smooth – jerky (1.2.9 was perfectly smooth)
Safari ios 7: Terrible. Nearly unusable (worked very well in
Chrome ios 7: Not as bad as Safari but still terrible (worked very
well in 1.2.9)
iPhone 4s: Terrible. Nearly unusable (worked very well in
Thanks a lot,

Seems to be working on my iPhone 6 plus. The only issue I had
was getting the play button to work after viewing thumbnails. Got
it going after many clicks.
I am wondering if it wasn’t smart to keep using 1.2.9 for my
Sent from my iPhone
It may be working well on the iPhone 6 because it has so much
more power than previous generation devices. I’m hopping for the
code to become more efficient, or at least stay the same, so that
it will play well on the widest variety of devices. If it was a lot
smoother using previous versions of Galleria on the same devicesthe
code must have gotten heavier.
If there is no resolution then I’m going to have to revert to
1.9.2 and forgo the Internet Explorer 11 full screen update, which
would be a shame.
Any thoughts? Thanks.
After 1.2.9 the wheels started to fall off Galleria. I have read
countless problems with each update since then. To be fair, a lot
are user issues not galleria. I didn’t feel like going through the
hair pulling to update to questionable version updates so I’ve
stayed with 1.2.9. I don’t use full screen features so I can’t
share your concerns but wish the fix and break update cycle would
settle into a real stable version.
FYI, I had to fall back to 1.2.9 for the time being. It works
perfectly on all of the devices I mentioned above, except full
screen on Internet Explorer.
