Definitely allow mobile zooming


This tiny plugin adds silently the viewport meta tag with zooming permission to allow your users to zoom in your website with mobile browsers.

If you find yourself in trouble not to be allowed to zoom with your favourite smartphone in your theme,

You can take this tiny plugin just to get the shiny magic zooming with your smartphone in your theme.

There are themes which are “responsive”. But a few of them are cruel. They do not let you zoom in-to your theme.

Don’t be upset, don’t get in panic, don’t spend a lot of money. Allow mobile zooming definitely in your theme.

You just download this plugin and click to activate it. No options page, no settings. Just your theme.

This plugin does all the magic for you and your users zooming with your smartphone in your theme.

Instead, just adding a second viewport meta line in the header section of a page, I started with version 1.5.0 to add theme specific viewport replacement, if available.
If you know theme which allows changes in the viewport by a filter, please write a comment in the WordPress forum and I will add the specific filter.

If you find yourself in trouble with this tiny plugin, don’t hesitate to ask for support.

The plugin does not collect any personal data, so it is ready for EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance. In your theme.

Cheers, very handy – HOWEVER I can’t get it to work on Pop Ups (Popups for Divi) on a mobile device. Any tricks you’d be able to share? Thanks heaps.

I had a menu page that would pinch/zoom perfectly… but ONLY on IOS devices. I couldn’t get that darn page to work properly on an Android to save my life. Spent MANY hrs trying different things. Just stumbled upon this plugin, installed it, activated it and BAMMM! Android devices work perfectly on it (and it didn’t affect IOS thank goodness). THANK YOU !
