    Thank you for sharing this great script. I succesfully implemented it at our website! Unfortunately with Safari for Ipad and Iphone the box remains opened once it rolls out.

    Any Idea how to prevent this?

      Hello thijs,
      When i checked your website with my firefox and chrome it was fine. maybe the safari browser do not allow jquery. So my suggestion to you is to have a mobile version of your site. how’s that?

        Hi Babanature, Thanx for your reply. According to my information jquery runs perfectly on safari for Ipad/Iphone. I was hoping you had a solution to get this working with your script. And yeah, sure a mobile version is the best choice. :-)

          This is caused by the invisible mouse cursor being placed by safari (and all other mobile browsers) at the point of last screen touch.
          The invisible cursor causes hover action.
          This is a common problem for all hover-based actions on mobile browsers.
          We had similar problem on our Global Quiz site with the quiz answers, being highlighted by last touch. The only solution we found was to activate ‘mobile’ mode once a first touch event is received by main window.

    This is great think, however for some reason Facebook image disappear from page as soon as open. After i refresh couple times it appears but its hard to keep it visible. Anything to fix that weird behavior?

      Blogger works like wordpress. On the first round, go to your wordpress “Editor” Located in “Appearance” and paste the first code in the header section.
      On the second code, go to your widget area and drag the “Text” Widget to where you want it to be and paste the second code there. Click save and you’re done.
