Support » Theme: Stargazer » Submenus on iPad

  • I can’t get to menu Submenus when using an iPad. Without being able to Hover, this doesn’t work. As an example:
    On this very familiar site, if I click on the Languages menu, it immediately sends me to the Languages page. The drop down doesn’t appear, so I can’t pick Korean. Sometimes, the Languages drop down *briefly* appears when I tap, but then sends me to the Languages page.

    On my own site, some menu titles are Custom Links with a blank URL (so it’s not clickable), but others are a page with a child page.

    On my desktop browser with a Stargazer site, if I hover over a blank URL menu item, the mouse goes to the click finger pointer. On my Esplanade-themed site,, hovering over the blank URL Articles or Pictures menu gives me an I-beam text pointer.

    The HTML code on both sites looks the same, so I suspect it’s a CSS issue.

    It’d sure be nice if Justin could fix this. I was a happy camper until I tested my site with an iPad.

  • As an update, when I test my site on my iPhone, the menus show up as the triple-bar at the top, which opens up to show all menus and submenus. I don’t know why my iPad doesn’t trigger the mobile version. Looking at the User Agent string, my iPhone does identify itself as such…same with the iPad.

    So how can I get my site to serve the mobile version to my iPad? I don’t have Android devices, so I don’t know if they have the same issue.

    Any idea to solve this ?



    I have the same problem. Any news about this yet?



    I was so loving this theme until I tested it on my iPhone and iPad. I guess it is a responsive website only if you don’t have any child pages in your menu. I’m using the secondary menu option, because I preferred the placement. Like sdayman, I have Custom Links in my menu, with child pages beneath.

    I’m definitely going to have to switch themes if this problem isn’t resolved ASAP! That said, I’m very grateful for the fact that such a beautiful theme is available for free.

    I’m using the Alice child theme to Stargazer.

    Does someone know how I can change the js code so the submenu’s are clickable?

    This is the js code:

    jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery(“#simplify-main-menu ul ul”).css({display: “none”}); jQuery(‘#simplify-main-menu ul li’).hover ( function() { jQuery(this).find(‘ul:first’).slideDown(200).css(‘visibility’, ‘visible’); jQuery(this).addClass(‘selected’); }, function() { jQuery(this).find(‘ul:first’).slideUp(200); jQuery(this).removeClass(‘selected’); }); });

    jQuery(‘#f-post-page’).click(function() {
    jQuery(‘#f-post-page-container’).css(“display”, “block”);
    jQuery(‘#f-post-page’).css(“display”, “none”);
