#4693: BuddyPress.org design issues on touch/mobile screens

Component:  BuddyPress.org Website  |    Version:
 Severity:  normal                  |   Keywords:
 '''Fixed position''' This is breaking the menu bar and makes it
 intolerable to use site. I suggest to remove the fixed position of header
 unless a complete mobile first approach to navigation is used. For that to
 work well IMHO the theme should be built as mobile up not using fixes to
 make it "work".  Easier to remove the fixed position on touch screens. See

 ''':hover''' the hover on bbp-admin-links doesn't work on touch as hover
 is intercepted on touch but tap. When you touch and hold on touch screens
 the behavior is to select the contents. This is breaking the admin links
 to show. We need to have a event listener for a touch event to show the
 links or just show them all if a touch screen is viewing content

 var supportsTouch = 'ontouchstart' in window || 'onmsgesturechange' in

 if ( supportsTouch ) {
   //code to remove display none and fixed positions or add a .touch to
 body and do appropriate css
