I have created a sidebar menu with several submenus and would like those to collapse for me.
I came across this post https://generatepress.com/forums/topic/using-menu-styles-in-sidebar/ so made my menu the secondary menu.
For testing purposes, I also duped it and added the same menu to the Slideout Widget then added it to the page as well.
Here is where I am stuck. Tom mentioned this “Are you using another menu on the page? If not, I would just move the primary or secondary navigation to the sidebar, and then set the dropdown type to “Click – Arrow”.”
I do have the secondary navigation assigned to this menu but for the life of me cannot find the dropdown he mentioned that will allow me to add the Click-Arrow toggle.
Help? What am I doing wrong?
We are using Elementor if that makes any difference.GeneratePress 2.2.2GP Premium 1.7.8April 10, 2019 at 9:38 am #865248DavidStaffCustomer Support
the problem is adding them as a widget, they are just a simple menu.
If you add the Secondary Nav via Customzier > Layout > Secondary Navigation –> Location: Left Sidebar then they would appear with the dropdown arrows. But that means you either have to use the Default GP Template with Sidebars added. Or you can try using the Sidebar Widget in Elementor and select the Left Sidebar… should work.April 10, 2019 at 10:06 am #865286Jen
David, thank you. Elementor does not acknowledge I have assigned the left sidebar a menu until I add it to the left sidebar widget. We don’t really want to use the default GP page because we only want the sidebar to appear in the top fold – don’t want or need it to take the entire page.
Is there no way around this? In reality, all I really want to do is collapse the sub menus thus my reason for trying to use your slideout widget.April 10, 2019 at 10:12 am #865294DavidStaffCustomer SupportApril 10, 2019 at 10:32 am #865311Jen
I did but kinda hated it. Haha. Liked yours much better.April 10, 2019 at 11:54 am #865368DavidStaffCustomer Support
haha – i wouldn’t use it either.
There is no simple solution to this, as we can’t hook the GP Sidebar into the Elementor content.
To convert the menu widget to toggle submenus would require some custom code.
