    Good morning Tom
    I’m not sure I like the change you introduced in v1.2.5 whereby “Mobile menu dropdowns now require arrow click to expand”

    Could it be possible for future updates to leave that as an option?

    I probably will end up liking this new way, but I’m not sure which one makes the web easiest to navigate in mobile devices

    Any thoughts?

    Hi Carlos,

    Stupidly I didn’t include any kind of backwards compatibility with the way it used to work – I just liked this new way so much more and went for it.

    It’s nice because you can expand and collapse items, where you could only expand before and the second click would take you to the parent menu item’s page.

    If you end up disliking it a lot, we can find a way to revert it back to normal 🙂

    I think you’re right (didn’t remember exactly how it worked before)

    I Just took a look at somebody’s else web site with former mobile menu, yes, it’s kinda annoying when a submenu opens and you have like 8 options that fill up your phone screen and you cannot close them

    Anyway, please write down (at the bottom, no need to hurry) in your to-do list some kind of backwards compability with former versions of GP

    As usual,
    Thanks

    Can I bring back the headache?

    Secondary navigation expands the way main menu used to do… I don’t know if that’s intentioned

    Thanks Tom, really
    Let me finish a first draft of the site (when ???) and I’ll buy a couple of coffees, you deserve it.

    Sorry, me either. Don’t want the X menu to pop up on my mobiles. It’s a little startling. We don’t usually see a close X on the hotdog and it makes it feel like an error. Can you give me some CSS to take it off before clients start worrying over it?

    I found it. To get rid of the close X, I added this to custom CSS.

    .toggled .menu-toggle:before {
    	content: "\f0c9" !important;
    }

    Thanks, Carlos! I’ll be releasing the new secondary nav some time next week.


    @Dee
    – sorry you didn’t like it! Easy enough to remove though 🙂

    Personally I like it – lets the user know that they can click it again to close the menu.

    Tom –

    That’s ok, I still love GP. 🙂

    I actually don’t think the close X is more intuitive, though. For example, the hotdog in the Firefox: You click, it opens. You choose something, it closes. I think this is what we’ve come to expect and my design of allowing the dropdown to cover part of the page is based on this action, that, once the user chooses something, it will just disappear and not be in their way.

    My two cents.
