Nav Bar And Banner On Mobile Devices

Recommended Posts

We are using PlatfromPro 1.5.3. The navigation bar and banner are not showing up on mobile devices. After searching the forum for clues I still can;t figure out why.

I've tried different themes and have used the switcher settings to no effect. I've treid different mobile themes as well. Still, I can't believe this is a complicated issue. Is there a simple way to enable the banner and nav bar on my site?

Your site has an XML error in it, possibly caused by a 3rd party mobile theme, seen when viewed in my Android device. The mobile view is thus broken and unseen.

The banner is not a responsive element. The navigation (menu) is responsive, unless someone's added fixed pixel widths. That's what usually messes up responsiveness.

Since you're using PlatformPro 1.5.3, I have two questions... Is PlatformBase 1.4.1 the activated theme (it's supposed to be). Have you considered updating to PageLines Framework? It uses far more responsive elements and has more options than banners to get your message out there, responsively. Since PlatformPro 1.5.3 is now a legacy product and won't be updated, it's important to make the switch soon as eventually, it will be deprecated from the support queue.

I'll look for any 3rd party mobile themes and remove them, thanks.

I'll also look later tonight to see if the nav bar has been fixed to a certain width, I don;t think it is but will check.

Since PlatformBAse is suppose to be the activated theme( I did not know this) I will activcte it in a few minutes. If you think upgrading to PageLines Framework will help I will also do that, but probably tomorrow, since I am off to work soon.

Thanks so much for this advise. I'll let you know what happens within a few days at most. Have a great day.

All I see for a mobile theme is PlatformBase. It looks like at least one is required, but this si the same as my desktop version.

I also looked at the CSS Stylesheet and did not see anything that points to a defined width for the Nav bar.

 

Still cannot find the link to upgrade to PageLines Framework, could yuou send one to me?

I do not see anything relating to a PageLines Frameworks upgrade on my Dashboard/Home page. I followed the link you provided (Please read the docs before posting) but do not see a specific link there either for PageLines Framework.

 

 

 

Can you provide a simple link that goes to the upgrade?

Hi John, please drop an email to "hello@pagelines" address and I'll zap you through the details directly.


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

PlatformBase is not a mobile theme.  It's the requisite child theme for PlatformPro.  Think of PlatformPro as the engine and PlatformBase as the chassis.  Normally, without and added software, plugins, themes... Platform is responsive in mobile devices.

 

That said, PageLines Framework is responsive with many add-ons, plugins, sections and child themes better designed for mobile than Platform ever was.

 

I'm sorry for the confusion.  You'll likely not see any upgrade link in Platform for Framework that I know of, but you should take James' advice and write to hello@pagelines.com.

No? As in you won't write to hello@pagelines.com or did I miss something else?

      I think I may have installed pagelines pro incorrectly, and then used features incorrectly. I installed first platforms framework theme and then the child, thinking I could do setup for child later. I tried to set up a background image, and tried custom css feature in pagelines dashboard. I had mistakes in my css, and just thought that if I deleted the info in the css custom feature in pagelines dashboard that the new information would overwrite the old info. The background image didn't respond at all, probably because I didn't have the child directory renamed. I then tried to use the LSS plugin to create css and added more css, possibly, somewhere -sigh-. I never did change the background image and get it placed properly. I used a workaround and in nested containers I placed a background image which worked well enough, so I moved on to try to create my nav bar/ menu bar. When I go to the Menus panel, there is NO area where I can place a menu on a page. I have read and reread and re- re- reread the instructions for placing a menu. I've used the pagelines editor to place a menu, however only HOME shows up. I've been at this for many hours. I've since uninstalled all of my pagelines items and reinstalled, thinking that it would restore all my changes to default, but no, it is still all there, with all my unresolved issues. I am completely at a loss as to what to do next.

      http://731.34b.myftpupload.com/ this website is using the NavPro navigation in Platform 5. It has a lot of menu items, so it breaks to two lines when the window is sized down. What is the media query to make the navigation either a) switch to "mobile mode" at a higher width, or b ) expand the nav into two lines. Thanks

      I just installed and added the Flipper section to my home page and it makes my navigation/menu bar items disappear.
      They do show up again when scrolling down and everything seems normal on the other pages.

      I have the WHP6 theme (not sure if I needed it). But heres my question....I want to change the font in the navigation bar and it doesn't give me that option. I also want to change the size of the nav bar (height).

      I'm working in the demo and I set the nav bar bg image and nothing happens. What am I doing wrong?
