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

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.

This functionality is a default. It's being controlled by code generated by Bootstrap, not PageLines. Mark Dotto of Bootstrap explains his reasoning for implementing this behavior here: http://markdotto.com/2012/02/27/bootstrap-explained-dropdowns/.


Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

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."


Life is too short to remove USB safely ...

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.

      Over the last month I had extensive communications with the developer of the (premium) Anything Boxes section (in Pagelines store) (Adam Munns) and the developer of the WP Polylang Multilingual plugin (Frederic Demarle).
       
      This was because the following problem occurred:
      Anything Boxes showed all posts of two languages (Dutch and English) on the respective static frontpages for each language. It should of course have filtered posts for Dutch language on the Dutch frontpage and English on the English frontpage.
       
      The solution to this problem was simple in the end. When duplicating a page for use in another language the settings for Anything Boxes were not copied to the new page and I should have set these settings manually again on the new page. I wasn't aware of this, but it makes sense. Because of this the pages didn't know how to differentiate between posts from different languages.
       
      The dev of Polylang told me that Polylang is currently smart enough to synchronize metas like Featured images and page templates but it does not work out of the box with metas created by plugins and themes but (according to Frederic) it is rather easy to add them in the list using the filter 'pll_copy_post_metas'.
      He mentions that he is not sure that these 'PageLines Meta Settings' are stored in post meta but that would make sense according to him. He asks if the Pagelines dev team will be interested to support this feature in the future.
       
      I'm also wondering if you will consider adding Polylang translation support for manually editable strings like the 'Read more…' strings in Pagelines Settings.
       
      Well that's of course up to you but I thought to let you know to be able to take this into consideration. I also post this for other users in case they experience the same kind of trouble and are looking for an answer.
       
      Best regards,

      Hi!

      I am using the shortcodes for tabs, as described in the documentation.

      When I insert the following code:


      [pl_tabs][pl_tabtitlesection type="tabs"] [pl_tabtitle number="1"]Title 1[/pl_tabtitle] [pl_tabtitle number="2"]Title 2[/pl_tabtitle] [/pl_tabtitlesection] [pl_tabcontentsection] [pl_tabcontent active="yes" number="1"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [pl_tabcontent number="2"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [/pl_tabcontentsection] [/pl_tabs]

      I get a strange output (in the attachment).

      Any ideas?

      Thanks in advance!
