Sidekick Sidekick Sidebar Menu Usability


Question

Posted · Report post

Hi Evan, thanks for the usefull sidekick menu. a question: is sidekick a solution to display childpages only? Or is it possible to use it as a standalone navigation menu (with parent and childpages together)? i'm looking for a vertical responsive sidebar menu - without the usual wordpress horizontal main nav. and what about IE behaviour - does it work in Explorer Version 7 (IE 6 support would be great as well). thanks for an answer! peter

Hi basmati,

 

Sidekick is not just for child pages.  There are 2 modes of display that determine how the menu is populated: Page Hierarchy (child pages - but more than that), and WP Menu.

So, using WP Menu mode, you can display any menu you have created in Appearance > Menus.  The mode, as well as the menu you want to display can be changed on a per page basis using the PageLines Meta Settings.

 

If you haven't seen the demo, check it out here:  http://sidekick.evanmattson.com

ok thanks - i think the demo page shows childpage mode only - so i thought i ask for the parent page mode (wp nav menu). that sounds great!  right now i'll test it in my stone age IE browsers :fpc:

Hey basmati - I just took a look on the demo site and it seems indeed that the demo for that mode wasn't finished!  I'll finish that up in the next day or so - thanks for bringing that to my attention.

 

There really isn't a difference in the appearance of the menu though.  It does the exact same thing as with page hierarchy, it's just sourcing the menu items from a menu!  Cool stuff.

 

Thanks,

 

E
