[Pro] Mobile Hyperlinks

Does anyone know why hyperlinks do not work on any mobile device, but work on my laptop fine.

You’re using image maps, and I don’t think they work on mobile browsers. You need to use a real HTML link instead.

Try replacing the image text with HTML text, and add your links there. You can style the text to look pretty much identical to the graphic text, and it will have additional benefits, like scaling up on mobile devices so it’s easier to click on.

Are you using the responsive layout tools to make this page? It’s possible that there is a layering issue at certain screen dimensions, and the sidebar is floating over the top of the main area. If you make your layout “inline”, with each element able to push the others out of the way, you can cause the sidebar to slip below the main content on narrower viewports, and thus all the links will be clickable.

Duplicate the page in Freeway, and then drag the sidebar and main content elements off to the pasteboard so you can draw a single HTML box covering the area they occupied. Then select the sidebar by clicking once on it so the corner handles light up, and Cut to the clipboard. Double-click into the large HTML box, so you see a text cursor, and paste. Click once on the now inline sidebar, and set its Float to right.

Do the same with the main content box, only set it to float left.

Finally click away and then back on the large HTML box, and set its height to Flexible and its width to Available. Now you can experiment with different viewport dimensions, and you should see the boxes behave more reasonably. You may need to use the different breakpoints in Freeway to set different widths or floats at smaller viewports, but because the two elements are peers, rather than floating on separate and isolated layers, you won’t have the problem of one layer obscuring another, and you won’t have to squeeze everything down to fit.

On Android mobile devices the links on the front-page don’t work, but the menus do. A friend who’s been doing a little bit of web development found out that the sidebar appears to be covering the main part of the page. We tested and it wasn’t any particular widget that’s in the sidebar https://geometrydash-free.com/
