[Like tuxlog, I tried to use the recommended forum but got Error: the Captcha didn’t verify. whenever I tried to submit my post.]
Specific example: http://www.elvet-striders.uk/about/test-page-maps/
When I view this webpage on an iPhone I do not get prompted to allow it to use my position, and my position does not appear on the map. Tested on Safari, Chrome and Firefox on iPhone 6s (two different phones on two different accounts), and Safari and Chrome on an iPhone 5s.
I tried a couple of other sites that use position (e.g. maps.google.com) and they prompt for permission to use location.
I’ve tried resetting Location and Privacy data under Settings.
Also tried on an Android Samsung tablet; Chrome and a new Firefox install. And no prompts. But prompts for maps.google.com.
I’ve also tried ‘requesting desktop site’ on the iPhone.
However, if I access http://www.elvet-striders.uk/about/test-page-maps/ on an iPad, I AM asked whether it’s ok to share my location, and my position IS shown on the page.
Is there something specific to the iPhone (and perhaps smartphones generally) that causes the plugin not to use the location?
The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]
