mobile menu for dms 2

Recommended Posts

What's the best way to completely disable the mobile menu for dms2? I'm not a fan of it and don't think it's very user-friendly. I'd rather use media queries or some sort of plugin. But instead of trying to go in and manually override all the CSS/media queries/etc./etc. I'd rather just start from scratch. 

 

Any help would be appreciated!

Honestly I was having this issue as well and still do.  They wanted me to send a screen shot of my android and I have no idea how.  NO ONE EVER GOT BACK TO ME.  The mobile menus are messed up and on droid show errors.  I hope they start to look into it.

anikonpro You don't know how to screen shot from your phone?? 

 

Well you could use your browser and just "squish" it until it's around 380-ish px wide and it will go into mobile device view...aka as if you're viewing from mobile device! try that?

Hi @brightonkeller 

 

There is a file in the DMS install > sections > (section) named style.less that uses media queries and tells the site how to behave based on screensize and browser used. add some custom CSS to change the point at which the Nav collapses is pretty straightforward to do. I will locate the code for you now. 

 

Alternatively - use the simple nav which doesn't collapse. 


The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

Martin Davies thank you sir!!! that helps -

 

so I guess I would need to create a sections folder in my child theme and copy over the navs less code?

Did you create a forum topic for this? please let me know and i will look into this - alternatively please create a new topic and we can help. 

 

I believe there are two ways to take screenshots from android devices 

 

press and hold the power and volume down button at the same time for 1-2 seconds. You should then hear a shutter noise and the screen will flash, there will also be screenshot notification icon at the top of the screen, from which you can access your screenshot.

 

Or, Just press and hold the power button from 1-2 seconds until you get a new menu appear. You then just need to select Take a Screenshot

 

If you're running Android 2.3 and below then you're going to need to download an app

 

I found this info by googling

No Problem - i will provide steps on how to do this - let me get my facts straight first ;)

 

A thing to know is that you cant have fixed elements on iphones and ipads. iOs webkit doesnt allow for it.

I think your best solution is to use simple nav to be honest. you can also style simple nav a great deal.

@brightonkeller 

 

Forum is the best way to do this ;) 

 

Just clarify for me? You want it fixed as in the site scrolls but the header with the nav stays in place as the content scrolls underneath? 

 

If this is the case just move the contents of your header into the fixed header at the top of you page. http://screencast.com/t/MkvNdeyX3EVW

ah, you are using DMS1 - so checking your site you do have a fixed nav.

 

Add simple nav instead or whatever nav you want let us know and we can help with the code to make it fixed 

 

afterwards -  disable the fixed nav you have already in the `site settings > navbar.

Hi again

If you want the new DMS 2 you need pay for this, but you can use de DMS 1.x.

:)

I updated my DMS 1.x to DMS 2 without any problem, only you use a child theme for your CSS, this is better to ALL update.

 

Please, take your time to change, here are a good Demo

ok - before you do ANYTHING - read this http://forum.pagelines.com/topic/33474-dms-20-how-to-upgrade-from-dms-11x/

 

Do not upgrade your live site. Do it in a test environment first.

      Is there a way to get the mobile menu to close when you click a menu item that is for an anchor link with the same page?
      Currently on mobiles and ipad the black mobile menu still covers a third or the screen after you have clicked a menu item (that is linking to an anchor link) and it has scrolled to the link / section within the current page. You have to physically click within the page / away from the mobile menu to get the menu and it's black background to disappear.
      Many thanks in advance.

      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

      Hello,
      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Akismet
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      WooCommerce
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?
