Bug Description

When using a touch based Windows 8.1 tablet or desktop with internet explorer, the drag and drop function of blocks when editing a page does not work at all. Also the mobile the device interface does not detect that the browser is running on a mobile device.

Have tried this with my current build of mahara 1.6.2 and also on the demo.mahara.org site and the issue occurs on both.

Hi Mathew,

I've added a patch -> https://reviews.mahara.org/#/c/3394/ that should theoretically fix this problem but as I don't have access to an actual windows 8 tablet I will need someone to test the patch to see if it makes any difference.

I've added the patch to demo.mahara.org to allow for easy testing - please let me know if the change makes any difference

Cheers

Robert

Hi Robert,
I have just quickly tried on my venue 8 pro Windows 8 tablet and it now
seems to be displaying the mobile version of the site, will have a more
detailed play with it over the weekend. I will test with a win8 RT tablet
to see if it also fixes the issue.

Thanks for the help so far, will email you back my findings.

Mathew

Hi Sorgi,

Can you please make sure if this patch fixes the issue for Window 8 tablet?
I don't think it works for Window RT.

Cheers,
Son

Detect windows 8 tablet as a mobile device (Bug #1295422)

Currently it is not seen as a mobile device so tries to use drag/drop
for the page editor - which doesn't work

This patch is designed to detect the windows 8 tablet and make it be a
mobile device.
