Hi,

 

What do you mean ? As I don't have access to my iPad at the moment, but I used the Resizer Bookmarklet and your navigation is certainly there.

Thats how the menu is supposed to work, its hard to see what you're actually trying to demonstrate from that image as its on the small side. However, when you view your site on a mobile device such as an iPad or iPhone or similar devices, then the navigation links will disappear and will be replaced with the mobile menu, which you access using the hamburger logo (three lines on top of one another).

Is there any way to control this responsive behavior? It's not what I want.

Unfortunately, it would require removing all responsive CSS i.e. media queries from your navigation section. This is something I wouldn't recommend, as the majority of your visitors will likely be viewing your website on a mobile device such as a phone or tablet and this number is only going to increase. This is why a lot of websites and frameworks are going mobile first, meaning that most of the layout has been designed with mobile devices in mind.

The navigation is such an example, if you remove the the CSS that controls how the navigation displays on mobile devices, what will happen is that all your menus will display the same way they do on a desktop PC/Mac and will look rather odd. It will also likely be difficult for users to navigate through your website, that is why the most websites that are responsive use such a method.

 

Here are just a few examples:

Okay.  

 

Here's the question. Can I just change the responsive behavior for Portrait iPad Viewport mode only?  In other words, in that mode, just keep the regular menu rather than the "hamburger" one.  In my design, there is room for the regular menu and the "hamburger" is not needed in that mode.  Also, other elements that I would like to keep disappear as well.

 

I have been using the (competing) Headway Theme. In that application, there are a variety of built-in Viewport mode Classes.  For example, one Class is called (something like) "ipad-portrait-responsive-hide."  I can then use the app to show or hide a div element based on the mode of the Viewport.

 

Are there any Viewport controls for Pagelines?  

 

As you pointed out, this control issue becomes more important as the number of devices increases.

 

If this is a topic that has already been addressed, just post the links.  Thanks for your help.

If there is not a built-in Pagelines control, could this behavior be controlled with CSS?

@michaeldallas Use Browser/device specific classes http://docs.pagelines.com/tutorials/browser-specific-css or more general @media


Chrome Developer tools - please use them. If you are not sure how, then it is easy to learn

Be inventive in your keyword search of the forum ie Navi > Navbar > menu > tabs > font > color. Your answer lies there somewhere!

Just for the record, I consider this to be poor design.

      Hi,
       
      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.

      Hi,
      I desperately need to deactivate the responsive function on mobile for reasons. It looks so messy with the responsive look on mobile and not navigating or informative at all as it is. 
      I searched for solutions online and tries some of those that I found but nothing worked out. Also I found a previous post on this forum says that this theme pagelines DMS is not meant to be build to deactivate the responsive function... 
      Also tried with widget such as WPtouch to edit the mobile look a little more informative but as I am using "single page" theme on pagelines, the frontpage(main page) never appears on those app.
      Seems like not compatible?
      If there is no way to deactivate responsive function or I'll have to recreate another page just dedicated for a mobile page? or change the theme completely and build a page from scratch?
      I have been searching for this for two days already...
      Could anyone wise and kind out there, please help me?
       
      Thanks,

      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.
