Hey guys,

I’m wondering if is there a way to know when the user clicked the first and second time on link?

Ex:

<a href="#">Link<a>

And When the user clicks the first time do a function and when the user clicks the second time open the link url.

I’m trying to make a dropdown menu work on touch devices.

If you know another way to make it work on touch devices let me know please :)

Thanks

Just set a class on the first click:

$(document).ready(function() {
   $("a").click(function() {
      if(!$(this).hasClass('clicked')) {
         //place code for first click

         $(this).addClass('clicked') //open link next time
         return false; //prevent from opening link this time
      }
   });
});
