Resolved On Hover Open for drop down items in Fixed Nav and Nav Bar?

Question

Posted · Report post

Wondering if there is any way to change the mouseover action on the Fixed Nav and/or NavBar to open the drop down items immediately without clicking, as it does on the Nav Classic

thanks.

Catrina. thanks for the link Ok. so besides the fact that I just simply disagree with the Mark's thinking about this - for my own purposes only. I actually WANT to force people to have a sneak peak at what is underneath those carets - all of his concerns are fair. but ultimately his solution doesnt work for me. - is there any way to override it?

Hi wendygordon, like said Catrina

I read at forum...

"The NavBar not supporting the dropdown menus when "click". The Navbar section is based on Twitters Bootstraps navigation and they have designed their navigation this way."

"If you wish to have this type of functionality, you can either contact one of our Pros or use the Nav Classic menu section instead."

Wendy, the way to override this Bootstrap issue is to use Nav Classic and style the menubar as you wish it to look via CSS. Unfortunately, there's no solid solution for the Twitter Bootstrap limitations. We're just forced to accept them or find alternatives. In this case, Nav Classic is 'the' alternative that's proven to work.

Wendy, the easy alternate, which sounds crazy is to have the first child item under the parent be the same as the parent.

So... Food

Food link >

Recipes >

Ingredients

Food would be the click link to drop the children and Food link would be the actual link to the food section. Sorry, I'm a foodie. One track mind.

it's a great idea. i solved it with UberMenu. I can fix the position and still get the flyouts.
