Hi,

 

is it possible to show always the subpages/child menuitems of the first level element in the sidebar. For example I'm in the first level page (Parent1) and i want to list the second and third level in the sidebar (Child 1-3). And if I navigate in the second and third level (Child 1-3) I also want that all child pages are shown in the sidebar (Child 1-3).

 

Parent1 (for example custom posttype added to menu)

---Child1 (for example custom posttype added to menu)

---------Child3 (for example page)

---Child2 (for example page)

 

In my navigation menu i have also custom posttypes (added to the menu). How can i show them?

 

How can i add this functionality (without change in the core files of the plugins) or could update the section?

 

Thank you very much for you help

 

Greetings Peter

Hi peter88,

 

Regarding your first question about changing the display behavior of the child items.  This would require modifying the code, as such behavior is not possible with the currently available options.

 

About custom post types, they are not showing up in your menu?  Please elaborate on the settings you are using (mode & behavior) as well as info about your custom post type.  It sounds like you're using menu mode correct?

 

If there is a problem with the section, I will definitely deploy an update for it!  I need to be able to replicate the issue though so I can see what's going on.

Hi Evan,

 

I have the mode now set to WP Menu and the custom post types are visible in the Sidekick...it was my mistake. But could you add a behaviour that the first level page or custom post type menu is not visible because i only want show level 2 and 3 in the Sidekick nav. So if the user clicks to a level 1,2,3 menu item there should be always level 2,3 in the Sidekick because level 1 is in the header hero main nav :)

 

thanks for help

 

best greets

 

peter

peter88,

 

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it sounds like you may be asking for the function of the "Hide Root Link" option.  This will hide the top-most parent link from the menu.  Is that what you mean?

Hi Peter,

 

This looks to me looks like what you would get if you had the Hide Root Link option on, however, this option only works with the Page Hierarchy mode.  Is it possible for you to use this mode?

 

I did notice that the hierarchy mode does not currently support custom post types, but I already have a fix for this :)

      I'm using the latest versions of DMS2 and Wordpress and the Sidekick menu version 1.2.7 which I think is still the latest version, and I now need to update the menu. But making any change and trying to save the menu results in a "403 Forbidden Access to this resource on the server is denied!" message. I've checked the permissions and can't see anything wrong and I can make other changes including updating the Hero Nav menu on the same site… sandgateprimaryschool.co.uk. Does anyone know what's going on?

      Hello,
      I wanted to let the community know that there is a problem that has happened on a couple of DMS sites that we manage. The problem is that there are certain plugins/sections that DMS uses (such as 'Accordions' and 'Sidekick') that will appear to have an update. However, when you actually update the plugin it is replaced but a similarly named plugin. Here are the original plugins:
       
      Original: http://dms.elsue.com/accordions/ (authored by @ellenmva)
      Replaced with: https://wordpress.org/plugins/accordions/
       
      Original: http://www.pagelines.com/shop/third-party-extensions/sidekick/ (authored by Evan Mattson)
      Replaced with: https://wordpress.org/plugins/sidekick/
       
      I just wanted to know if there is anything I can do to make sure that other plugins/sections do not get replaced when I update them in the future as well as bring it to the DMS community's attention so that others do not experience the same confusion and frustration. Any thoughts would be very welcome in order to avoid this in the future.
      Thanks!

      DMS 2.1.9.2  
      Sidekick 1.2.7   Am probably missing something simple here, but is there a way to have clickable link in the menu that simply expands/collapses the menu? (Menu set to Expandable mode, WP Menu mode.)   Here would be a simple WP menu:   Business Home: http://homepage.com/business HR: Benefits: http://homepage.com/business/benefits Form 1: http://homepage.com/business/form1 Form 2: http://homepage.com/business/form2 Form 3: http://homepage.com/business/form3 Policies: http://homepage.com/business/policies Contact Us: http://homepage.com/business/contact  
      In this case, we have "HR" there only for organization on the menu, however we don't necessarily have a dedicated page just for HR. We're looking to make "HR" clickable just as the other items would be, but just expand/collapse the submenu. (Basically, the same functionality as the expand/collapse arrows, but also for the item title)
       
      I've seen for some other types of menus, you can just put the link for the menu item as "#", but that doesn't seem to work to expand/collapse the Sidekick menu. 
       
      Was there something I was missing?
       
      Thanks,
      Eric

      In addition to a few other settings, like Expandable, Accordion, etc...
       
       
       
      Global Site Settings:
       
      Mode: WP Menu
      Default Menu: (one of my menus)
      Fallback Menu: (one of my menus)
       
       
      Local Settings:
      Mode: WP Menu
      Menu: Default
       
       
       
      Sidekick only works if I set the menu at the Local Settings level. I want to set it once at Global Site Settings level.
       
       
      Please help. tyvm.
