Find the Word (WordSearch) is Just Not Mobile Ready?

Am I missing anything?  Is there a way to get the word search - Find the Words - to work on mobile?

Hi Riff!

I tried it on an Android phone, and it works well.

In order to give your bug report the best chance of getting answered, please include the following information:

  2. Platform and version number. E.g. Drupal, Wordpress, Moodle.
  3. Mobile or Desktop
  4. Browser: Chrome, Firefox, Safari etc
  5. H5P plugin version
  6. H5P content type and version (if a content type was used), and a sample URL or attached H5P.
  7. Any browser console errors
  8. Any PHP errors
  9. Screenshots if it's a visual problem
  10. Any recent changes to the environment (new plugins/modules, updates, configuration changes etc.)
  11. Any recent changes to the browser you're using (new extensions, updates etc.)

Ok, thanks Oliver, here is the info:

H5P Version 1.13.1, WordPress 5.2.2 placed on a page, IOS-Mobile, Safari & Chrome, Find the Words (content type)

Issue is that only a part of the word grid is visible, you cannot select the entire word.  Screen shots attached.

Hi Riff!

You're right, and that's not an iOS issue but a general issue with small screens. "Find the Words" was not created by the H5P core team, and I am not sure if the author of the content type reads this forum. Maybe you should contact him directly via his user profile or his repository.


Thanks for that suggestion- I was hopeful when I saw the example here work just fine on my phone:

his user proifile says acess denied and I did not see away to contact in gitlab.  But I found a plug in in the WP library that will get us by for now.  Agin thanks for your help!

Which plugin did you use to overcome this issue? A wordsearch that only shows half the columns is not useful.

Sent that information, it doesn't look like my last post is published yet.  Additionally, I even tried to create it here on H5P and embed in iframe...same problem.  BUT when I go to the exapmle from my iphone, it works great. It looks like it is not playing nice with WordPress

Any progress on this?  My students are accessing this via moodle on a range of Apple devices and it does not work as expected?

Hi ridleyl,

It's best that you check with the developer/maintainer of the libraries through his Git repo from the link given by Otacke above.
