To get a complete full screen display of your album in iOS, turn your iPhone first in portrait orientation and next back in landscape orientation: the bottom tool-bar and the Host domain bar will both disappear, leaving it in complete full screen mode. The tool-bar and full URL bar will appear again when you tap on top or bottom of the page. Unfortunately you have to do that under iOS to use the buttons on top and bottom of a page!

Up to 7 text-buttons and / or icons may be displayed below the thumbs on the index page with as default functions:
