Shortcut issues on iPod Touch Answered

I'm using new iPod Touch to browse the site (yay, Kitewife!), and I've discovered that the "shortcuts" tab doesn't work properly. 

As soon as I tap the tab, the drop-down menu appears, but before I can select an option, the page jumps directly to the page for customising that same drop-down menu.

This isn't a bug, as such, but it does reduce the functionality of the site on mobile devices, a that's a huge slice of the audience these days, on quite probably a disproportionate slice of the "first visitor" market.

(I don't know if this is an issue on non-Apple devices, maybe somebody could check and add a comment?)


Was this the mobile version of the site, or just browsing through the normal site while on the iPod?

It was on the normal site, but I have since had it on several other sites as well - it appears to be an issue with the version of Safari I have on the iPod.

Ahh, that's fair. Sadly there are no alternative browsers for the iPod.

It does that on my android phone as well as my friends iPod. Apple isn't the only one. I still can't get the hang of typing in an iPod, I prefer the swipe keyboard of my phone over apple's multi-touch keyboard.
