Most WordPress themes look just fine when you view them in an iPad but what every iPad user gets very soon used is swiping across to turn pages. I thought it would be a good addition for any WordPress blog to be able to provide this functionality via a plugin and a good programming exercise for me as it would be my first WordPress plugin.
1. Upload directory ‘ipad-swipe’ to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory.
2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
Download: Click Here
Users will see a message box on home page or single post, informing them that they can use swipe to turn pages. By default visitors will see this message for 5 visits or till they just close the message box. There is a setting to change the number of times to show message on iPad Swipe settings page. Another setting is, which devices should this plugin be supporting. If “All” option is selected, it will allow to swipe posts on iPad, iPod and iPhone. Finally, the settings allows you to add your own message to be shown to the users.
Feedback, suggestions, patches, bug reports most welcome.
