Support » Plugin: AMP for WP - Accelerated Mobile Pages » Menu and on page links work erratically on i\phone

  • Davide


    I have implemented the free version of AMPforWP with the menu and GDPR plugins.

    The site tests fine if I check it with Chrome and Firefox but on an iPhone the menu works intermittently and on page links don’t appear to work at all.

    Is this a settings issue or is it that your plugin just does not work with IOS?

    I can get the plugin to work on an iPhone by:

    1. Turning off javascript on the iphone

    which leaves the GDPR blocking the site

    2 Turning off GDPR in the plugin settings/gdpr

    This also enables on page links

    Probably infeasible to require the iPhone user to turn of javascript and to run the site without a GDPR notice

    Can you please tell me are you get this notice to accept/reject cookies?
    And please tell me which version of iPhone and iOS are you using?

    Hi Ahmed,

    GDPR is enabled and the notice does not show on the iPhone (but does on the AMP page on a PC).

    However, though the GDPR notice is not showing, if I tap the screen in approximately the right place (center of screen where the notice is set to appear) the Privacy Page I have set opens correctly in a new window.

    The is also a small “icon” that looks like “..” (could be the top 2/3rds of the character “V”) on the title line of the page which if an area just to the left of it is tapped brings up the top part of the line “Privacy Settings” – the line shows about the top 2/3rds of the characters – this does not scroll.

    It’s almost as though the GDPR notice is present but invisible. If I scroll the page down the “Privacy Settings” stays fixed at the top of the screen but still only the top 2/3rds of the characters show.

    I’ve just been trying to figure out what the behavior is and I think I may have the answer which appears to be as follows:

    1. The .. icon at the top right of the screen is very small and the tap area is also tiny and a little to the left of the icon BUT if I can tap the touch point the text in blue “Privacy Settings” is shown at the top of the screen.

    2. When the text “Privacy Settings” shows the menu, the on page links and the scroll button all work.

    3. On every page change the text “Privacy Settings” is replaced with the .. icon – suggests that tapping the icon is not persistant – and the menu, links and scroll bar again stop working.

    iPhone is a 5c (MG912B/A) running IOS 10.3.3 (14G60)

    My guess is that the GDPR notice is popping behind the page content and is not persistent for the session.

    Does this help? David

    I’ve just checked further on this and I think the “..” icon I mention above is the top part of the “X” in the Cookie Policy notice.

    The text “Privacy Policy” in blue is the Privacy Page Button Text that I heve entered in the GDPR back-end page of your plugin.

    The Accept and Reject boxes and their text is invisible but the tap zones seem to be active.

    Certainly looks as though the notice is behind the page content.

    If you send me an email address I can forward you screenshots if that would help,

    Additional point – running the AMP page against Lighthouse mobile gives a performance score of 78 / 91 100 / 92

    Running the non AMP version of the same page against Lighthouse mobile gives a performance score of 90 / 93 / 92 / 100
