It's seems like everything I try to do in OCPortal I run into a problem. I clicked on my site menu to edit it with the links I want to use. I created a new link/branch and made it a contracted branch. I put several links/branches under the contracted branch and saved it. When I go to the Link in the menu, there is no + to expand the button to show the child links under the the main branch and nothing happens when you mouse over it or even click on it. See the screenshots.

On your demo page I created the exact same menu branches and it worked fine. Any idea how to fix this behavior and why it works on the demo but not my page? :(

This menu type does not support branches. If you edit the left panel you can change the menu type for the menu block to 'tree' instead of 'panel'.

We use 'panel' by default as it is more touch-friendly (bigger links, no need for multiple precise touches), and it is getting to a point where most users are on touch devices.

In v10 I believe we will be showing child items on the top level so at least they show somewhere.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
