My name is Joel Shannon; I have a very basic question about
using MapBox. I’m trying to create a very basic map that
lists local farm markets for use in a non-for-profit project. I
don’t have an extensive coding background, but I know
fundamentals of web design. So far, I’ve been able to follow
the tutorials on the site fairly easily and get a result that I can
However, I have run into a small problem when viewing the maps
hosted on MapBox’s servers on my mobile devices. The biggest
problem I’ve encountered is that links that I have put in the
“full” description of place markers don’t work on
my iPhone or iPad. They work just fine on my laptop, but double tap
on my mobile devices simply causes the map to zoom.
Is there anything I could do about this? I’ve been working
on using MapBox over Google’s less code-heavy custom maps
feature for the great customization potential, but if I can’t
create links that are usable on a mobile platform, I might not be
able to stick with using MapBox.
Thanks for your help on what I’m sure is a very elementary

For reference, here is the map I am working with. I’ve
tried to avoid populating it with data or working on aesthetics
until I can resolve this issue.
Thank you again,

I've found the problem and have filed
a ticket to fix it in the system. I should be able to look at
