My sight URL is http://www.job4you.org and when I bring it up on my android the spry dropdown doesn't work so you can't go to the other pages. Is there some kind of code I can put in so that it will work on mobile phones?
Okay, I get it.
I'm assuming you're running an older version of Spry.
Older versions of Spry aren't touch-devices friendly. To achieve the functionality in touch devices, you could probably use onClick or onDblClick functions instead of onHover. Or, you could make a .htaccess file to redirect mobile users to a separate html file all by itself and load minimal, mobile-friendly functionality there. It's a compromise we have to make.
However, Spry UI (aliased as Spry 2.0) supports touch-screen devices. You can read about it here: http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/spry/ui/
Also, there's a very popular plug-in for Dreamweaver that lets you customize and optimize menus to load across devices. It's paid-for but worth it if you're specific about loading your site on mobile devices (especially touch-enabled). You can look it up here: http://www.projectseven.com/products/menusystems/pmm2/ug-examples/acce ssible/index.htm
On the other hand, you could style your menu using pure CSS. This will work across all touch-enabled mobile devices without a glitch as it doesn't load any external functions of any .js files.
The choice is yours to make and I know its a tough one - but I hope you find a workaround! Good luck!
Right it doesn't open up the submenu items, and I have run a validator, sorry I have alot of errors to work on, but I'll be back after I've fixed them. It makes more since that my Dreamweaver is out of date for androids. But I will go back through the code.
Looking back at the example I did, it does work. It just takes a little more time to load, which yesterday, I probably didn't have the patience. Looking at it now, it seems to work so I will pursue this on my other project as the spry menu didn't work for me. After it worked on my apple device, I had other staff test it on RIM and Android and it worked there also. Thanks for the tip, I now have to rewrite a couple of SSIs to make it work.
Added: I got it to work, not I am just tweaking it a bit.
Log-in to the Adobe Exchange with your Widget Browser and grab Spry Menu 2.0 which supports touch screens.
When you've got it styled the way you want it in Widget Browser, Save Widget Files to your Local Site folder.
Below is a working example of Spry Menu 2.0 and a couple of other Spry widgets. View source to see how the Spry support files are organized.

Ok, first post didn't go through, sorry if this is a duplicate.
Thank you Nancy for the example. It was precise, accurate and I appriciate all the great examples you have shared. I did download the widget and got a working menu but it seems there is a lot of overhead (many js files). I also was able to get my older spry menu to work on Apple, RIM and Android, so I am moving forward with that one for now.
Also thank you Sudarshan, your information was right on target.
I think the original poster should be able to get a working menu from the information on this thread.
