Add support for touch devices #2169

On touch devices most of the toolbar functions are not available.

This issue is meant to track every touch-related issue and their solution.

ATM not working:

tested on stock Android 4 browser / Safari on iOS 5.1.1

  • [ ]: Drag and drop plugins in a placeholder
  • [ ]: Drag and drop plugins between placeholders
  • [ ]: Drag and drop plugins from the clipboard
  • [ ]: Editing plugin from the content mode


  • [ ]: Toobar items selection (on iOS); should be fixed by #2168



Would be nice if we can implement a way to make drag & drop work on mobile. NestedSortable was apparently not developed for mobile but you can get my branch here:


The most urgent thing I guess is editing on the content mode (in structure mode editing on a touch device is really clumsy)

dblclick and drag & drop will probably not be possible within the 3.0 release on mobile devices.

However, I added some basic support for immediate responses like switching modes, menu handling, structure mode, but partial features will not be available (especially drag & drop).
You can edit content in content view by clicking on a content, and than on the tooltip to open the modal. Structure mode still has some unexplainable issues.


Also related to #2326


For 3.0 I guess content editing will be enough to allow for quick edits while away.
Agree: TMK drag&drop is really hard ATM


Some features have been added, drag & drop still doesn't work (also not supported in ui 1.10.) We might hope jquery might add some improvements...

This affects Chrome and Firefox on Linux if touch is enabled. Can't comment on Windows 8 touch. I've been using this website to check if the browser supports touch

As a work around one can just disable touch. In firefox that involves going to about:config, and disabling touch.
