my website is http://guideofrhodes.com. I have recently upgraded to flexslider dev 2.x and everything seems to work alright, except in windows phone 7.5 (mango), where the flexslider is not shown at all.

Meanwhile I found a markup bug in flexslider.tpl.php (line 7 - the double quote), but it doesn't help either.

You can try the http://guideofrhodes.com/flextest page to see it for yourself, using a WP7 emulator if you can't access a phone. Note that any flexslider2 library demo online renders ok on the Windows Phone, it is just this module that does not. If there is another demo with the latest module installed, I would be happy to test it on my own.

I wish I had some developer tools on the mobile browser to hunt it down!

Thanks in advance,

Does windows phone 7 work on the WooThemes example FlexSlider page?

Yes, definitely!

Yeah it's a little tough for me to debug this. I won't have a Windows Phone 7 nor do I run Windows so installing the emulator isn't really an option. Any chance you can do some more investigating? Is it a javascript error? Doe the images show up at all? Have you tried running FlexSlider with Bartik or Omega (to eliminate custom theme issues)?

Yes, I have run the slider with Bartik and had the same issues.

In desktop IE10, I get the tpl error but just this; if I fix it it goes away, and it does display the images anyway. I have tried the IE9 simulation as well.

In WP7's IE9 though, the slider is totally empty and collapsed. I discovered a DOM inspector and found that the HTML code is loaded correctly, so I feel that the javascript is not really executed for some reason.

I don't think I can debug javascript on the phone, but I will try to go closer.

Do you have in mind any other drupal site to test?

Try the example sites listed on the home page.

I'll see about that IE10 template issue. Can you post more details on that?

You mention a template issue? Is there a fix for it?

Sorry for accidentally changing issue title and version. I was using 7.x-1.0-rc3 version of the module and Flex Slider library v2.1.

Module version 7.x-1.0-rc3 and Flex Slider library v1.8 works fine for me in ie10.

Are we still having this issue? Or is it fixed in the latest version of the library.

This is working fine now (at least at WP7.5)!
