The recent update in Flexslider to version 2.1 fixed a bug whereby the swipe on touch screen was freezing the slider.

The Module version also uses v2.1 but the bug still exists in this version. On touch screen the user can nagivate through slides for a while and then it freezes and only reloading the page refreshes it until it occurs again.

Comparing the v2.1 libraries from Flexslider itself and the Drupal module we can see that there are differences and that the setting: touch: true - isn't in the module version

I've tried adding this setting to my JS settings for the site am working on but it's still not working.

Note that if I use the Flexslider itself, rather than the module, then swipe works fine.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

I can't replicate this issue. Can you provide your optionset export configuration?

Are you sure the "touch" setting is enabled?

As far as I know the module doesn't set a value for the touch setting, so the default kicks in from the plugin itself, which is touch: true (see jquery.flexslider.js $.flexslider.defaults = {)

All the touch settings are present in the admin. (see 224 in flexslider.admin.inc)

As far as I can tell, this works just fine.
