    I have a problem when I log onto my webpage on my cell phone(Samsung Galaxy Nexus) using Chrome(only browser I have installed). When I log onto the page, my links don’t link. On the desktop page they do, but on the phone they give me the ahh snaps Jim Chrome image. Not sure what to do as the links are to my email, my phone number, and to the other pages. Can someone help. And if you have suggestions on making it friendlier, please let me know. Thanks.

    I tried posting yesterday – let me try again.

    The choices made during the layout of each <article> might be the source of the problem. Each <a> actually is wrapped around the <img> which is positioned absolute. Technically speaking the <a> is 0x0 px.

    In most browsers, it’s probably assuming to know what you want and allowing the <a> to wrap the <img> like it wasn’t absolute. That might be one reason.

    Another could be JS – when inspecting the DOM, I see a ton of inline CSS. This is normally indicative of JS writing CSS in after the DOM is loaded. So that could be something else.

    Basically, what I would do is just take a single one of the <article>‘s out of the page and put it up on codepen or something. Mess with it until you can get it working and try implementing it into your main site.

    As far as making it more friendly, I would suggest allowing a bottom scrollbar. First, in case something goes wrong with JS a user can still navigate. I also don’t like when sites navigate by mouseover. Even though scrolling down using the mouse’s wheel works, it’s not my first instinct.

    I’ll try that. Not sure what codepen is but I will look it up.

    Thanks

    Here is the best question I have. Why would the link be broken in mobile and not in desktop?

    and after banging my head its not the images that won’t load….its links to my email, my phone number, and links to other pages. Images seem to load fine. Am I off my meds and not making any sense?
