    @decadeofdefeat Brilliant! I was losing hair by the minute until I found this. Same problem, great solution!


    Thankyou so much Jeyjoo!


    jeyjoo’s solution works great for getting the dropdown to appear, but does anyone know how to get the dropdown to disappear when clicking outside it?

    in other words, i can get my dropdown to now appear, but cannot get it to disappear.


    please help
    where is exactly the place, where should I put “onClick=”return true” ?
    I use drupal 7 + CorporateClean theme
    and my menus do not drop down on Ipads
    unforunately I do not know anything about js

    I know this topic has been solved however thought I’d share my CSS hack for anyone not familiar with JS.

    This isn’t a 100% fix as there are a couple of issues to resolve however it will work across browsers & iPad.

    Here the codepen:

    The demo is a very basic css dropdown menu. I’ve used pointer-events to prevent the nav link being clickable except for on the iPad, where I’ve used media queries restricted by the iPads exact dimensions to allow clicking through.

    Issues to overcome:
    * pointer-events won’t work on IE so the link will be clickable.
    * On iPad after opening the dropdown the link will be clickable.
    * If there’s another touch device with the same dimensions it will be affected.
