    Any suggestions on how to handle this?

    Hello,

    I am trying to update our site so that it works well on mobile devices. We have links with hover states and an onclick event. This creates a problem on mobile devices. When you try to click (touch) on the link you get the hover state, than you must click again to get the click event.

    I am worried that I will need to create some code similar to this:
    Code:
    if(mobile_device)
    {
         look for all instances of link code and remove hover state;
    {
    Code:
    <a class="glossaryLink" href="#" onmouseover="onRollOverPULink(event, 'IT');"onmouseout="onRollOutPULink(event);" onclick="showHideGlossary('IT')">
    Can anyone help me out here?

    it's easy enough:

    Code:
    if(navigator.userAgent.match(/(mobile|android|ios)/i)){
      [].slice.call(document.querySelectorAll("a[onmouseover]")).map(function(a){
         a.onmousover= a.onmouseout= null;
      });
    }
    my site (updated 13/9/26)
    BROWSER STATS [% share] (2014/5/28) IE7:0.1, IE8:5.3, IE11:8.4, IE9:3.2, IE10:3.2, FF:18.2, CH:46, SF:7.9, NON-MOUSE:32%

    Why was this moved? I guess I should have mentioned jQuery Mobile.
