I have child pages under parent pages in page menu/header, they work fine when using a PC, but I cannot get them to work when using a mobile phone or touchscreen device such as an iPad.

I am using the GamePress Pro theme.

I asked this question on Stack Overflow too.

What do you mean "cannot get them to work?" What have you tried? What exactly is happening that's different? Keep in mind there's no hover per se on mobile devices, so a touch is often interpreted as a hover event rather than a click on event on first touch. – Andrew Bartel May 25 '13 at 2:34
I cant acces the child pages, when I touch it only goes to the parent page. – user2418736 May 25 '13 at 3:18
You probably have a CSS :hover based menu, which doesn't work on touchscreen devices. You will need to use Javascript to make this work but that is off-topic here per the faq. Try Stack Overflow. – s_ha_dum May 25 '13 at 3:47
Lol I asked this on stackoverflow they told me to come here oh well. Thank you. – user2418736 May 25 '13 at 3:58
If the problem is what I am guessing it is, then the solution is Javascript. It is not a WordPress specific problem. But edit the question with more detail and maybe I'm wrong. What is the URL to the Stack Overflow question? – s_ha_dum May 25 '13 at 4:07
