Menu not working on iPhone (8 posts)

    When I view my site on my iPhone (3gs) the responsive menu icon appears on the right and there are no arrows to indicate submenus.

    However when I try the site on http://quirktools.com/screenfly , which emulates mobile displays, it appears as it should.

    Here are screen grabs of the two - my iphone above, and emulator below:


    Any idea why this might be happening?


  2. Hi there, could you please let me know what iOS is your phone running? Is this in Safari?

    Could you provide a link to the site so I can do some testing? Thanks.

    The iOS is 5.1.1

    I'm using Safari on the phone, but I have also tried Chrome and I get the same thing.

    The site is here: http://silviamercuriali.com/site/


  4. Thanks for the link and the extra details. I've reported this to our developers so they can try to fix the issue. I'll keep you posted here.

    I've made a change to Writr that should fix the issue. This change is on the WordPress.com version of the theme. Until the changes are reflected in the WordPress.org version, can you apply the following fix to your theme, and then check it on your phone to see if the menu displays properly? Thanks!

    Add this code to style.css:

    /* Adjustments for the menu display on smaller devices like the iPhone 4 */
    @media only screen and (max-device-width: 480px) {
        .main-navigation ul ul {
    		width: 324px;

    Thanks for looking into this, but I've added the code and it hasn't fixed it unfortunately.

    I am meeting the client on Saturday, and will see how it looks on her (more recent) iPhone, and will get back to you.

    I tried it on my client's iPhone 5 and it worked fine, which is handy.

    So it seems it's the iPhone 3gs, and iOS is 5.1.1, that doesn't display the menu as it should.

    If there's anything you can think of to fix this that'd be great, but if not it's not the end of the world.


  8. Hi Alistair, thanks for the new info. I'll let you know if there's anything further we can do for this older iOS.
