When tapping a Flite ad, why can't I scroll the page?

When designing new creative, please keep in mind that Flite ads "swallow" drag events for navigation within a component (i.e. swiping to advance a carousel component). 

Because of this, page scrolling will not be possible while interacting with certain components. 

Here is a list of some of the components that use touch events to navigate:

  • Stack
  • Carousel
  • Gallery

One way to avoid this swallowing of the touch events, is overlaying a transparent layer to prevent this, keeping the 'nav' buttons outside of the component, so the navigation is not broken.
