Hmm, the plot thickens… No, it doesn’t refresh on your demo site. So then I thought, “I must have screwed something up in my child theme.” But if I switch my site to the parent StartupPro (whose code I have not touched – I swear!), it still does it. Perhaps there is a setting in StartupPro Options that is different between your site and mine that is causing this – I don’t know.
I don’t know what kind of smartphone my friend was using who first noticed the problem – it could have been either iPhone or Android (I can ask her if it’s important). My husband’s phone is Android and I have an Android tablet.
The site is (currently, while in development) at http://thinkword.com – take a look. If you want admin access, let me know how to give it to you securely.
