Progressive Disclosure issue with Andriod Mail


I have created a mobile optimized template with the Progressive Disclosure functionality to show/hide my articles. It all works perfect except on my Android phone.

When i open the article to view the content, then touch the screen to scroll (as the article is quiet long) it closes. The Article will only stay open if I don't touch the screen. As soon as i touch the screen the article closes.

It works fine on iPhone and a windows phone (one that understand media-queries).

Is there some CSS/code i can use to stop the article from closing?

Also I have also discovered that you cannot click on the links in the articles. It just closes the article and scrolls to the nearest link visible on the page. Is there any work around for this?

Hey francis.jade,

That's quite strange indeed! Could you possibly post your code in this thread, so we can check it out? Or if you'd prefer, drop us a line at support - we'll be more than happy to test this for you.

Also, just to clarify - are you using the default Android mail app, or the Gmail app? Thanks in advance!

Hi guys, to update, we have another thread about the progressive disclosure technique, in which an alternate method has been suggested. You may want to give this a shot, too. Best of luck!
