Head out to http://brucegust.com/rodgers/mobile/about.php
. It will show up the same way on your mobile device as it will your desktop.
The scrolling menu is the issue. When you click on any of the menu items from you desktop, you'll be appropriately redirected to whatever page is attached to that menu option. When I try that on my iPhone, I have to hold my finger on the menu item and wait for a prompt that gives me several options. I can either:
open in new tab
add to reading list
This is killing me, because I need my mobile environment to mirror what's happening on my desktop and I've been banging my head against the wall thinking that, perhaps, I've coded something incorrectly.
Mind you, this is not a new block of code. I've used this menu approach with several sites and I've never seen this problem until recently.
This morning it occurred that the problem may not be with my code. Perhaps it's a setting on my phone. I found this article which seems to describe my anomaly perfectly: http://www.mactips.info/2012/09/how-to-open-links-in-a-new-tab-on-the-ipad
Thing is, neither I nor my users are interested in any option other than simply being given access to the page that we're trying to look at. Is there a way to disable this option that insists on giving users a collection of options rather than simply directing them to the page / link?
Thanks in advance for you help!
