I am trying to work with Navi (http://thinkl.aw). The menu window opens properly but nothing shows unless one moves the cursor to the menu (see image for the blank menu window). Then the menu shows but it isn't bright enough. How do I fix both problems?

 

Also:

How can I add the word "Menu" next to the Navi's menu icon?

Is there any way to use font awesome in the menu?

 

Thanks!

Hi - what device are you seeing this issue on?

I was working on chrome, and looking at safari... The problem is with safari. On Chrome the outcome is really nice. 

 

So to summarize the issue as it is now at my end: On safari I can't see the menu -- this is the big problem.

Also, I wonder how to customize Navi -- adding the word menu and whether it is possible to use font awesome. These are issues for a later stage. 

 

Thanks.

Is this just the case when you are logged in to the site? this is how i see the site on safari,, http://screencast.com/t/cU1ReNr0q

 

You could change the style using custom css and make it browser specific so the changes are only applied to safari. Help with doing this can be found here http://docs.pagelines.com/tutorials/browser-specific-css

 

Installing Firebug for safari browser will help with this - http://getfirebug.com

Thanks, Martin. I could see that if I "play" with the mouse but not otherwise. My original image shows how I see it on Safari. Also, as you could see in your image it is quite difficult to read the font. I tried firebug. Assuming that I did it correctly, it didn't make any difference.

Thanks again.

What code did you try from firebug? How did you go about changing the style?

I plug inn </> Custom Script the following line:

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://getfirebug.com/firebug-lite.js"></script>

 

Is that the actual code you entered?

      Hey Guys,
      Having some issues with the dropdowns for the Navi in DMS. For some reason I can't have any more than 2 levels in the dropdown. The cursor is hovering over RPAS Training (and the arrow to indicate more is visible) but no matter what browsers, it never shows up. Also inspecting the HTML shows that the additional fields are not there.
      I have inspected the PHP and cannot see anything that is limiting the number of levels. Any assistance to get the additional levels showing would be great.

      Hi guys. Just now trying out Platform 5. I like the reletive simplcity of the new interface but there are things I'm used to in DMS that I'm not seeing yet in 5. Is there a good manual, documentation, video series about some of the basics?
      In particular, I've got a simple navigation menu, created the standard way in WP menus section with several top level parents, then 3-4 children menu items below a couple parent items. Have them moved to the right to create the standard parent-child relationship but all I see on the page is the parent level items - no dropdown!. So I changed themes from Platform5 to the standard 2015 default theme and now I see absolutely no menu at top, except for the mobile (hamburger?) icon.
      In DMS, one had Navi and Navbar, etc sections and each would work differently and give different results. How do you work the menu system in 5? And how get different results ?
      thanks

      Hi 
      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

       I have setup the Navi (content width) to show the burger icon for my menu system (desk and mobile).
      It works great..displays only the Burger..BUT ONLY when on the Default Menu (which is not a real menu, but some random selection of pages).
      As soon as I select the MAIN Menu in the Navi settings it suddenly displays all of the menu items...which I don't want.
      The domain is not pointed yet..it is at 162.219.161.131
