Description

In this lesson, we allow users to use the reverse-pinching motion to see a high-level overview of the different groups of recipes we offer—a process referred to as "Semantic Zooming." This allows the user to get context and drill into the items that interest them on our start page.

    The Discussion

    • alice

      semantic zoom control is not working and also the first landing page is not rendering properly

    • BobTabor

      @alice: I'd be happy to help if I can, but I'll need more details.  Was your project working correctly prior to this lesson?  Can you isolate the code you wrote and verify that you typed it in correctly?  An errant curly brace or CSS selector could make a big impact on how things appear on screen.  Can you check your work against the actual Hands On Lab document that I'm following to make sure your code matches theirs?  Again, I will try to help you get past this ... just let me know.
