Mobile Nav Menu Search Box?

Recommended Posts


I have not been able to find where I can turn on a search box for the mobile version of the nav menu.  It's available on the desktop view but not when viewed on my iPhone.  Is that not an option?  On my framework site I have a search box in both views but I don't seem to have one when using DMS.  




Here's my site - http://www.evscicats.com/evscnewsletter/


Thanks for any help you can lend.

Hi Jerrad,


I don't think search in a mobile menu actually works.  It uses Javascript which can break a mobile view.


I've seen a gzillion websites on mobile devices and never have I seen search in the menu.


You can add a search box via sidebars in Dashboard > Appearance > Widgets but adding search to the menu should only be done as a link to a search page.

      Not sure exactly what is causing the issue. For some reason, why you view my site on mobile, the menu does not show up. It will pop up, but it is black. You can check it out here: http://dev.caryfbc.org. I'm also attaching a screenshot where I shrunk my browser down. Any suggestions?

      I have been using DMS and pagelines.
      I am facing to a huge trouble with the appearance of one of my page on mobile (smart phones) built with pagelines.
      However I haven’t come to any solutions to organise either edit the appearance of mobile view to look neat or deactivate the responsive function. 
      Now it looks totally messy on the phone...
      1. Is there any way to edit the appearance of the mobile version (responsive theme)?
      2. Is there any way to deactivate responsive function?
      If I could receive support from you to go thorough this process I would be happy to be a pro member. 
      Looking forward to hearing from you.

      This just happened to a site I'm working on. When I decrease width of browser to check for responsiveness...the pagelines content section is not responding???

      While building my website, I set a padding of 5%, 25%, 5%, 25% so the text on the pages is not too wide.
      However, it looks crappy on mobile.
      How do I get the same effect and still have it look good on mobile?

      Hi guys,
      can I limit the overall of MegaNav on mobile? When I look at michaelkummer.com on a mobile device, the menu takes up more than a third of the screen space. Using CSS to limit max-height doesn't seem to work. Is there another/better way to reduce the overall height to maybe 10% of the screen available?
