So I am using the Views Slideshow (7.x-3.9) module in conjunction with the Views Slideshow: Swiper JS (7.x-4.0) under Drupal 7.61 and it’s working great for my needs. But have run into an issue. The version of the Swiper JS library I have installed is 4.4.6.
While the “Format > Slideshow > Settings” clearly has an option that you need to check a checkbox to enable keyboard navigation, and I have that option unchecked, I can assure you that keyboard navigation is clearly enabled.
Looking at this issue request on the Drupal page for Views Slideshow: Swiper JS shows a similar issue where the Drupal module settings seem to not be respected by Swipe JS when loaded, but the “solution” (kludge?) of downgrading to a 3.x.x version (such as 3.4.2) doesn’t work for me. Beyond not wanting to be behind the curve in patches and development on Swiper JS, when I attempted to swap my 4.4.6 version to 3.4.2 made the slideshow go a bit haywire.
So what can practically and simply be done to disable the keyboard functionality of Swiper JS under Drupal?
