Toggle menu confusion

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

I'm using Backgrounder and noticed that the 'toggle menu' for phones does not work - nothing shows up on a smart phone. Even on your demo page, making it narrow did not invoke a menu button, so no way to navigate.
After a few hours of trial and error, I finally had 'Btn' appear on the top right of my phone page. However, there seems to be a limited selection of buttons - none of them is the 'standard' 4 bars that zen-bars offers, and none of them would suggest to a viewer that tapping it will bring up a menu.
Question: is it possible to have the 'zen-bars' there, instead of the default buttons?

I also noted that the Italian template, does what I want - provides the bars when the page gets thin. But this is done via off-canvas panel. I tried to do the off-canvas for the Backgrounder, but with no success (I even changed the position to left, instead of right, but still nothing appeared.

I'm open to suggestions as to which method to use to create the menu button (with bars) for phone viewing.
Some instructions on how to do it would also be very helpful.

Thank you, Nick

Hi Nick,

In the example - openalldoors.co.uk/buildr/

Do you see the toggle menu?

I installed the template to test with a toggle menu
It works on my android phone

Thanks Paul,
Yes, I see it. I must have messed something up in my template settings for it not to work for me.
Where can I find the default settings for this, so I can change things back on my website for the toggle menu to reappear?

Hi Nick,

1. You have the toggle menu position added
2. You have toggle menu set in the Collapse Menu section
3. In the row the toggle menu is published it is set to show on mobile?

Cheers

Thanks Paul,
I managed to get this to work by placing the toggle-menu in the top-right row of the template, and setting it to hide for widescreen and tablets.
Now it remains permanently on the phone screen, even when scrolling - which is perfect.

Thanks, I think we solved this one.
And I learnt, once again, how awesome these templates are.
