    Default My menu graphics don't work under Android 6.x

    I have a website, created currently with Fusion 12.0. It works fine on Windows PCs.

    Recently I viewed it on an Android (6.x) tablet. Because my drop-down menu items are, effectively, graphics, if I try to click on one, Android opens it as a graphic image rather than following the menu link. How should I overcome this?
    Please be detailed.

    Try this link, for example, if you are able to use an Android tablet.

    I confess to knowing nothing about Android but why don't you either a) use a CSS menu (there are plenty of online CSS builders on the web) and insert it using Ctrl-T, or b) just use a text menu. If you want you can create a custom CSS pseudo class to style it or leave it as the default styling for your site. You could even duplicate the site with text menu items and use a selection script to redirect visitors to either the mobile version or the desktop version. Believe me, people using smart phones and tablets aren't worried about fancy graphic menus; they just want to be able to see the site and navigate around it easily.

    Franko, Apologies for not replying. I somehow missed your suggestions. I didn't realise that NO had a text menu option. I will probably go for that. My site is of very limited specialist appeal, so it doesn't need to be fancy. My reason for asking the original question is because I can't access my own site on my Android tablet! I will also look into your other more complex-sounding suggestions. Is there a particular text menu setting that you recommend?

    The graphical menus in Fusion are driven by javascript and not by CSS. They work fine in my iPhone and used to work fine on Android phones when I last checked (quite a while ago). I haven't really kept up with the different Android releases though. However, I would think it highly likely they would display a CSS menu ok and that's why I suggest CSS.

    Text menus are simple hyperlinks so no issue there and, as I suggested above, you can use CSS to style them. If the browser doesn't render the CSS properly, you still have the text links in place.

    I stopped using Fusion menus a while back. There are plenty of CSS menu apps on the web these days.

    I have the same problem but I had not pinned it down to Android 6, the weird thing I found is the graphic menu's I created on an early website done with NOF 12 work on my Android tablet but not those done with NOF 15.
