Hi, I have built a single page site with four sections and corresponding main menu links to each section. Anchors scroll properly on Firefox and Chrome desktop, but on Safari and iOS 7, clicking on a link or menu item simply reloads the page and does not scroll to the proper section. I have tried anchoring each section separately using either HTML or the Developer field of the appropriate section. Please advise.

How are you? I hope you feel great today. Thank you for the question.
I checked the website but there is no section with an id like “client-success”. Please edit the Color Section then place the id on “For Developers: Section ID” field.

Can you re-move the changes to your child theme/child theme js file. The 2.5.4 update should have fixed this and in my live test install I’m not having any issues with the scroll-to behavior in any browser+OS combination.
You can also try deactivating any active plugins just in case there are any js conflicts since the scrolling behavior is a javscript effect.

I have followed your instructions, removed child theme changes and turned off all plugins. Unfortunately, the page is still not working properly in Safari or iOS. Worse, the tool tips used to pop-up on iOS when pressing the icons at least. They no longer work now. Please advise on an anchor text/main menu fix as the site is functionally broken at this point. Very much appreciate any fixes.

Just to keep you updated: I am investigating the issue and once I find a fix will release another update, probably at the beginning of the next week ;)

Just checked the site again and after some testing I have to say that I am a little startled. For a reason I dont know yet one page portfolios seem to work fine on my local installation but the problem still persists on yours. Could it be that there are any plugins interfering?

The topic has been re-tagged for Kriesi to take a look at as I’m not actually having the issue when viewing your site either but it may be an misunderstanding on my part of the exact issue.

Ok after taking a longer look this turns out to be fairly simple, and its not even a theme issue :)
Your webserver is set to append a www. to each address that is called. So a link to http://sparkpunch.com#about is redirected by the server to http://www.sparkpunch.com#about thus reloading the site. as long as you make sure that all links contain the www no page reload occurs and the page scrolls properly :)
I have already set your menu items ;)
