    I think it is time for us to find another solution. This is seriously affecting our sites and gets worse every day as more and more devices get upgraded or come stock with JB. Could you give us an update on your bug squashing, or is it time for us to find another solution?

    Thank you!

    We're working on this one, it's elusive. I think it's something in the way the JellyBean browser is dealing with the JavaScript. We'll hopefully have the fix out soon.

    Hi, the more we wait, worse it gets. Many people are updating to Jelly Bean and it's affecting on our sites. Please respond if there would be a fix soon or we should look for another solution. Thank you.

    Addon uninstalled, I just use JetPack's mobile feature. Not quite as robust, but at least the site works now.

    Does anyone have any other good options for mobilizing our sites?

    Also looking for other solutions. It appears that the developer has abandoned this plugin in favor of the paid "Pro" version.

    Good to find this thread. I'm giving WP Mobile Pack a try. Having trouble since I use a static front page (Suffusion theme)for my desktop version, not a list of posts. But already looks better than Touch.

    Anyone have any idea how to get around static page issue?

    The issue seems to lie in the Jellybean browser not correctly communicating with the PHP code. A way to workaround this problem is to simply remove the condition surrounding the get_header() and get_footer() function.

    Files to modify:

    "themes/default/page.php", "themes/default/index.php" and "themes/default/single.php"

    Header fix (Line 1):

    <?php global $is_ajax; $is_ajax = isset($_SERVER['HTTP_X_REQUESTED_WITH']); get_header(); ?>

    Footer fix (Last line):

    <?php global $is_ajax; get_footer(); ?>

    Hopefully the developers should have this issue resolved soon, but for now this should help people who were having the same issues as me.

    Thank you for this solution, it works and really helped me out. But there is one small problem with it. On the index page, when you load more posts at the bottom, the footer is loading too because of the Ajax or something.

    I am using the plugin for a static content website, and therefore didn't notice that problem. I'll try and find a more suitable fix.

    EDIT:

    This fix *should* work, maybe... Hopefully. Not tested.

    <?php global $is_ajax; $is_ajax = $_SERVER['HTTP_X_REQUESTED_WITH']; if(!is_null($is_ajax)) get_header(); ?>

    <?php global $is_ajax; if(!is_null($is_ajax)) get_footer();

    Thanks again for your responds. Unfortunately this last suggestion still doesn't resolve the problem with the duplicating footers.

    Any word on getting this to work on new android OS? I tried The header and footer fix mentioned above. Didn't seem to do anything.

    Have the same exact issue on my site: http://www.davejunia.com

    I have 3 browsers on my Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean HTC One X.

    WPTouch displays correctly in Chrome for Android

    Screenshot: Chrome for Android
    User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android 4.1.1; HTC One X Build/JRO03C) AppleWebKit/535.19 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/18.0.1025.166 Mobile Safari/535.19

    WPTouch displays INCORRECTLY (similar to others in this thread) in HTC's default browser AND Dolphin Browser

    Screenshot_HTCDefault: HTC Default
    User Agent_HTCDefault: Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; U; Android 4.1.1; en-sg; HTC_One_X Build/JRO03C) AppleWebKit/534.30 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4.0 Mobile Safari/534.30

    Thanks for the information everyone! It's seriously a very strange bug, and we've went through a lot of pains to try and correct it.

    Rest assured we're not giving up and hope to have it solved soon.

    Hello,
    same problem here using WPTouch 1.9.6.1 and Nexus S (dolphin or embedded browser).
    If I use Chrome or Safari mobile no issue at all.
    What is strange if as soon I browse correctly the page with Chrome or Iphone, then it's reable perfectly (the same page) with dolphin or embedded browser.
    Could it be linked to cache incompatibility (WP Super Cache 1.2)?

    Thanks

    +1 on this. Is it effecting the Pro version of the plugin as well?

    Same here with my schools website: http://www.mogent.cat

    I've detected this problem long ago, but found no one having the same. Finally found this thread about that issue!

    Hope it resolves soon!

    +1 here.
    Site: blog.doncho.net, works OK on Chrome, fails miserably on Dolphin (like davejunia screenshots).
    Tried on devices Galaxy Note 2 and Nexus 10, same thing.

    Last versions of all WPTouch, WordPress and Dolphin.

    I hope you can fix that weird bug soon.

    Best regards,
    Doncho

    Something else has popped up here too. Just did some testing and see that if WordPress SEO -Joost is enabled with WPtouch then there's a duplicate header.

    Again, this is only happening with Jelly Bean devices. Boat, Dolphin etc.

    If force rewrite title is enabled on WordPress SEO then it resolves the issue, however I don't want that. I'd prefer to enter in <title><?php wp_title(''); ?></title>

    Anyone know where wp_title is stored on WP touch?

    Hello,
    My issue is that my content is very narrow on my screen when viewing in mobile or desktop thing. Additionally, in the mobile theme - there is no header, footer, nav menu, etc. So, once you get to the home page, you can't go anywhere else. I'm on a Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Android version 4.1.1.

    Thank you

    Any news about this bug?

    @dalemugford are you going to resolve it soon? Any date?

    Update -- I had WP Touch looking OK on previous version of Android. Unfortunately, I accepted an "upgrade" from Verizon (Droid Razr Maxx), and now I'm using Android 4.1.2. This has resulted in all the formatting being lost on my WPTouch mobile page, it looks horrible.

    Can someone confirm which browser is built into 4.1.2, and if Aidan's work around shared above will work? Thanks much.
