Support » Theme: Constructor » [Theme: Constructor] Menu no longer working on iPad/iPhone since iOS 5 update

  • Since the latest iOS 5 and Safari update the drop down menus no longer work properly on iPhone & iPad. Before the update clicking the parent would open the drop down menu without opening the pages, allowing for selection of the child pages.

    Since the update it is almost impossible to navigate to the child pages, as the parent page opens each time it is clicked. It has destroyed navigation of my site on iPhone & iPad.

    See my site here: –

    Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

  • I share the same problem, navigation on iOS devices is same as Mr_Man1968 above. Very awkward.

    Its the issue with jQuery, I mean the plugin that used for menu. Try ading <script>$.support.touchOverflow = true;</script> in header.php before </head> It worked for my client. Not sure, just a suggestion.

    Thanks samfusion, but unfortunately this didn’t work for me. Does anyonme else have any suggestions?

    Also did not work for me.
    For me I used to be able to click the main menu item to get the drop down menu to appear and now nothing at all happens when i click – on phone and ipad. On non ios when you hover over the main menu option the drop down appears as it always did….

    You can try my JQuery code

    Ps. you might have to play with it, but you can check if it works.. I have the stop on the animation to prevent the enque of animation, as that makes jquery crazy 😛 I know there is a “non enque”, but I found it to be a tad buggy.

    I will try it out, thank you 🙂

    ckarpinski, did you manage to solve this problem on your iPad?

    No I didnt. Do you have any ideas?

    No unfortunately – I’m thinking of changing themes because of it. These days any theme has to be iPad and iPhone friendly – if not then it will lose popularity. It’s a pity, because I’ve spent hours tweaking Constructor to suit my needs.

    I am actually using the default theme 2010 (a child theme of it) and having the problem so you may want to be careful in choosing a new theme.
    good luck 🙂

    That may suggest a general WordPress problem then?




    I see your website is working now. How did you do it? I’m having the exact same problem and cannot figure out how to fix it.






    I’m afraid I’ve never been able to solve this, so I have simply restructured my menus only to have one level. It’s nested levels that seem to be the problem.





    Mr Man1968,

    I’m new to WP. Would you mind walking me through this, as I thought that’s what I did. I have an empty parent menu (nothing happens when I click this header; it is only a placeholder), and then put my 2 or three active child pages below by dragging and dropping using the MENU screen of the build.

    VERY much appreciated. I have been spending hours and literally losing sleep about this.
