X5 Professional Ver 14 Deleted Sticky Side Menu Bar  en

Autore: Kenneth McDermott
Visite 1027, Followers 1, Condiviso 0  

I finally got Professional Ver 14 activated and successfully imported my Ver 13 project and uploaded a few cfhanges - but I just discovered that the sticky side menu scroll feature I had turned on for my side menu items in Ver 13 no longer works in Ver 14 (i.e. the side menu bar no longer stays visible when scrolling down each page - whereas before it would continue stepped down the page as the page was scrolled down).

I did find where I can select to have a sticky top menu bar - but that's not what I use on my sife. I want to be able to have the side menu bar continuously scroll down with the page.

Did this feature disappear in Pro 14 or is it just hidden somewhere else?

Thanks!

Kenn

Hello Kenneth

In v14 you can have in : 2 Template - customisazion - Template structure

You can specify : Header Footer AND left or right sidebar.

You can place a menu in the sidebar. What you place in sidebar will stay visible even when scrolling.

Hope this helps you.

Kind regards

Kenneth,

Goto step2 template structure, select on the second pulldown side bar. (the first needs to have side bar in it)

Set keep always visible to on. (keep objects on view when scrolling pages)

That's it, check if all other viewporst are also on (that shoud be)

Best Regards.

Yes - of course the sidebar has to be always visible - forgot to specify this. Thanks Andre.

Sorry guys - I tried this but it doesn't work. Here's where I think you directed me to:

After putting the check in the box to keep objects on view when scrolling pages I published the site, but the side bar buttons do not stay viewable.

I'm using a Responsive Design so I'm wondering if that has any affect on this setting.

Any other ideas?

Thanks!

press F5 in your browser to clear memory, then check again.

I had noticed it worked on my iPad earlier and decided I will clear the cache on the Chrome browser on my PC the next time I’m upstairs. I agree that’s probably the problem on the PC.

Thanks!

Andre,

Something odd is going on. After clearing my Chrome browser memory cache the sidebar menu still didn't remain visible so I poked around and discovered Chome had an update so I did that. I tried again and it still didn't work.

The sidebar menu stays visible using Edge, IE and Firefox (and on my iPad) but for some reason it won't work using Chrome, which is my default browser.

Do you have any thoughts about that?

Thanks!

Kenn

Hello Kenneth, sorry I am not a Google / Chrome fan.

Due to the fact that google (Chrome) reads saves anything you do install or use and all you do with it. i try to stay as far away from it as possible. Not that I have anything to hide but it's the principle that they don't inform you and hide all kind of options they need to install by law to try and collect as many data as they can on almost.

So I use Firefox as standard and have got for explorer for reference.

But it should be an item you need to add or apply in Chrome I suspect. it works everywhere else so x5 is not the problem.

I am not going to install it for test, maybe another user can help you?

Or just leave it, you know it works, maybe it will be handled in another update?

Hello Kenneth

I have tested your site in Chrome.

It functions. I also tested in Firefox, IE and Edge - all seems to be as it should.

The left-menu goes up until the header disappears and then it gets sticky.

Kind regards

Thanks John and Andre!

I've tried everything with Chrome and the sidebar just won't stick. I may give up on Chrome per Andre's comments and I like Edge - but it doesn't handle my Norton 360 Identity Safe as well as Chrome does. Maybe falling back to my previous default browser of Firefox is the way to go.

It's always one thing or another with these darn computers!

Thanks!

Yes, that's true.

It is in fact also incredible that everythings works like it does. If you take in consideration what it needs to make a website and read it and all different options and possibitities in between.

Think about, your own pc hardware and software / operating system (there are many), then your provider with also different kind of software manufacturers and different hardware, and then also handhelds with there own hard and software options. the combnation you can make are incredable!

This will, I fear, always be the case that on some level one works a tiny bit different then somewhere else.

And then I haven't mentioned firewall and thinks like that.....
