[resolved] [twenty eleven] custom menu drop down not working on mobile (8 posts)

    Hi there

    I am trying am using a custom menu on my site: http://www.nadaav.com/n

    There is a drop down that comes from the "watch stuff" tab. It works fine on desktop versions of the site on chrome and safari (mac), but I have been testing it with mobile browsers - notably chrome on android, and the drop down doesn't work. It appears when I touch "watch stuff", but having touched "watch stuff" just opens that main "watch stuff" parent page, and the drop down disappears before I have a chance to select a page from it.

    Is there a way to make this work better on mobile/touch screens? Do I need any plugins to optimise WP for mobile generally, for example?

    Thanks kindly

    SD

    You would be better off using the Twenty Twelve theme if the mobile market is important to you.

    Not unless you turn it into a new standalone custom theme and start investigating responsive design.

    You could try installing a mobile view plugin but that will, almost certainly, create a new mobile version of the site that is not based on your current theme.

    Oh, I see.

    Thanks for this.

    I am trying to install twenty twelve as per your suggestion, and seeing what I can do to make it look like the lovely way I had twenty eleven working, but have just had a disaster.

    Turns out I was unable to deactivate my current theme. On forum suggestions I have manually done it via FTP and now have no working site at all! Gasp.

    I know it's now off topic but if you are interested, I have written a thread here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/cant-change-theme-4

    And am currently in mid panic.
