  • I am using an iPad, and I am on the full site, but suddenly, today, the drop down lists won't show up. Any advice? Anyone?

    • No iPad for me but it's working fine on my iPhones and iPods... Have you tried closing out of the wiki and opening again to let it reload?

    • Have you updated the iOS recently?

      Dropdown lists not showing up suggests that javascript is not enabled.  If Apple pushed a new update, maybe that did something weird with the settings.

    • I have tried closing/reopening to no avail... And no, no new update recently. Certainly not since earlier today! Thanks for he quick responses!

    • Figures... As soon as I posted my last reply, it started working again!

    • Haha, well at least it's working now. :) (I think Sylv would fall over if there was a new update that changed things, LOL)

    • I did some searching and found that the iPad has a history of trouble with dropdowns...  Is it just the dropdown menus that are missing?  Are the buttons that say "Get Breeding Results" and "Get Potential Pairings" still there?

    • Mine has been fine since I posted last that it was rocking again, but to answer your question, no, the buttons were gone in addition to the dropdowns... I have not ever had a problem with dropdowns of any kind except his one...

    • Rocking? Spellcheck fail... Working...

    • Well, many websites have the option of not using javascript for dropdowns.  However, MediaWiki on Wikia relies on javascript.  The Breeding Calculator dropdowns are done in javascript.  These are the kinds of dropdowns that iPad apparently doesn't support sometimes.

      There are non-javascript dropdown alternatives.  The question is whether Wikia's MediaWiki stuff will allow me to embed it onto the wiki page or not the way the calculator is now...  I would have to do more research on that.

    • Try clearing the cache and cookies worked fine after I did that.

    • I finally managed to borrow an iPad to see what was going on. One of the problems seems to be Safari hating some keywords that I *had* to use as a workaround for MediaWiki's dumb caching slowness.  Will anyone who cannot use the calculator on their device please test for me if it works on a different browser such as Chrome?  (You'd need to visit the App Store to download apps for Chrome, Opera, etc.)  The Chrome one is free but requires iOS 5.

      I'm using Safari on the computer right now but the calculator works perfectly on it, unlike Safari on the iPad, which is on iOS 4.  I'm wondering if an update to iOS 5 would fix it.  Please let me know what iOS version you are on with Settings -> General -> About and giving me all the numbers etc. that the "Version" row displays.
