iBlog5 menu

Recommended Posts

JohnMagic

By default the superfish code for the menu is different than iBlog4. 1. In iBlog4 the menu i responive and quick, but in iBlog5 its having a pause before dropdowns appear. How may I may it as responsive as iBlog4 ? 2. Theres also an on-hover error when moving the mouse towards the dropdown making the dropdown collapse. This is a serious error as it puts users off. Is there a fix to this or documentation on how to fix it ?

1. The delay may need to be adjusted in the code. 2. What do you mean by the dropdown collapsing? 3. Yes, if fixed in Framework files, the fix will be overwritten on updates.

Then I suggest it to be reported as a major bug, since its bad usability. If you want to reproduce the bug just make a dropdown in iBlog5 and move the mouse slowly from the main menu item towards the dropdown menu. its a classic bug. Since upgrading framework will overwrite fixes I guess fix must be done in a framework upgrade or on child theme level by having functions.php load a fixed superfish js. Do you agree ?

I was going to mark this issue for developer's attention but that option isn't there anymore so I'll forward this link to the developer.

.sf-menu li:hover ul {top: 32px;} <- fix on-hover error but it's not perfect.. just a hotfix.

Is it the framework or iBlog5 that is updated ? ( and how do I upgrade, no messages in backend that I see ? )

I updated the package on the server, i didnt increment the version. You can redownload it if you want to, but its such a minor fix and you already have the css in place anyway.

There is also the superfish.js responsiveness issue. As is is its too slow usability wise in my opionion. What will be the best way to make changes on the superfish script. The framework already interact with it does it not ? Editing of the framework core files is a bad solution, and the whole point of framework/child theming is to do all edits on the child theme. Do you reccomend to make use functions.php to load the superfish from the child theme ? I also belive that some menu graphics are part of the framework rather than the child theme. Do you reccomend to make child theme css code with these images in child theme folder ?

superfish is loaded by the core nav section, and the speed and delay are set in that section too. If you want to override these settings you will need to copy the nav section folder int your child theme, and edit it. Dont dorget to rename the section name at the top so you can add your new nav section into the header.

Thanks Simon, but since I`m a bit slow you may have to be more precise ;) 1. I copy the whole framework nav folder found in sections folder to the iblog5 child theme. 2. I do some renaming. What renaming ? May you explain "Dont forget to rename the section name at the top so you can add your new nav section into the header."
