    Hi. I’ve created an extensive child css file and modified the design, but I need to solve an important issue. When responsive on a touch device, the main menu lacks access to subpages. How can I include them?

    Thanks,

    James

    This will require an update to the parent theme, we’ll push the update tonight or tomorrow.

    Thank you.

    Fixed in 2.0.3.

    Even if it’s not exactly what you had in mind, we’ll have more flexibility to customize it now.

    This is greatly helpful and needed, as we’re launching this site within the week. Very much appreciated, so thank you.

    I assuming I’ll see the update in the WordPress interface today?

    Take care.

    I received the update, thanks. Did the update add css selectors to show all menu levels in responsive mode? How exactly can i do this now?

    Thanks so much.

    You can test here http://quirktools.com/screenfly/ – The mobile menu activates at 320px.

    Also, if you provide the link to your website, we can have a look, make sure to clear any/all caches.

    I cleared the cache and tested at 320 px, and it appears the same as before the update.

    I went ahead and remedied it with a mobile dropdown plugin.

    Thanks for the update and responses, though. i really like the theme/framework. A built in dropdown would be perfect.

    Yes, I noticed that they drop down at the 320 px size now, and thanks for updating that. My dilemma was that it still lacks touch screen mobile functionality at any size, since a:hover will not work with a touch screen. If the entire menu either dropped down with subpages included, or at least showed subpages in the menu at a chosen screen width, it would be perfect. I’d rather not rely on a plugin for that, but it seems to work well for now since I can clone it after the existing menu.

    I really like everything else about the StartupPro theme because it’s very basic with minimal CSS, so I can easily customize it and design how I like. I’m definitely still using it, and thanks for the great support.

    You just want all menus to show/be open by default at mobile size?

    This isn’t something we’d want to implement universally in the theme, but for your specific request we could give the customization a try.

    Let us know. Thanks

    Pardon me for jumping into an old discussion, but I have a comment on this, and a suggestion that, if coded, you probably would want to deploy universally in the theme. Standard practice for mobile layouts these days is to start by showing just a link/button with the word “Menu” and/or a menu icon (typically three horizontal lines), and when touched/clicked on, the whole menu (including sub-menu items) would open below it (and close when the Menu button is touched again). That would solve the problem James was having in February (which would indeed be a universal problem for anyone trying to access a site with submenus on a touchscreen device), as well as my concern, which is that the menu fills the whole screen on a small device, so every page change requires scrolling before any content can be seen.

    Would you consider implementing this very common style of menu behavior?

    Already planned, soon. This will also be apart of an overall general design freshen up to keep up with popular design trends.

    Good to hear. If you need testers, feel free to give me a holler. I’m also building it into a bilingual site with Japanese, so I can make sure it does localization correctly.

    We may also revisit the idea of a collaborative language translation project too.
