Add a title to mobile-menu?



Best Answer Evan Mattson , 16 October 2013 - 04:12 PM

1.2 was released today which adds several hooks for you to do things like add a title or other content, or change the icon/text for the mobile toggle button.

 

For now the source is your only how-to, but I plan on putting together a little tutorial on my website for it soon.

 

Cheers

can I add a title to the mobile-friendly navigation, so that it appears to the left of the menu icon?

Hey @flourishdesignstudio,

 

Your the first person to ask about this, but I think it's a good idea.

 

I'm not sure if justifies another option, but I may add a filter for it.  Are you familiar with WP hooks & filters?

Hi Evan! I've never used a hook, but it's been something that I want to learn if you can talk me through it. I already have a child theme created.

Filters are really cool.

 

It's basically like a checkpoint during execution.  Filters pass some information, and then generally asks "anyone else want to do something with this?", at which point you can :)  You can either add to it however you wish, or even change it completely.

 

Hooks & filters are pretty much the same thing, the only difference is that filters require that you return some data back, where as actions don't do anything with a returned value.

 

There are many tutorials about how to use hooks and filters.  Perhaps I'll write one for betterdms.com :)

 

Stay tuned for an update.  The best way right now is probably just to follow me on twitter: @aaemnnosttv.

I'm replying here rather than the other thread for the sake of relevance.

 

I haven't decided if I will make an option for the toggle text or not.  I think it's probably better to make it filterable, and then you can make it however you want.

 

Regarding whether most people recognize that as indicating a menu is there... I think this has been embraced as an unspoken standard in a big way.

 

There are many big websites and mobile apps (facebook for example) that use this symbol to toggle a menu.  Two big websites that come to mind are starbucks.com and theonion.com.

I don't think it's necessarily a bad idea to add a title/label next to it though.  The need for such a thing definitely depends on the audience of the website as well.

 

I'll post an update here when there is a solution :)

Hi @flourishdesignstudio I agree with Evan, that's a great suggestion. In the meantime, you can start doing a little reading on the power of hooks at http://docs.pageline.../advanced/hooks which also links to a wonderful intro to hooks at http://wpcandy.com/t...ordpress-hooks/.

@micstepl,

 

The hooks are documented in the source.  If you're on the current version (1.3 as of this writing) you will find these starting around line 355 in plugins/hero-nav/sections/hero-nav/inc/HeroNav.php.  You will find several hooks there that you may find useful.
