Responsive Select Menu
[resolved] Issue / Feature Request (2 posts)

    Hi there,

    First off, great plugin - we use this all the time when theming. Thanks!

    The reason I'm writing is that we often use your plugin in conjunction with the Genesis framework. Your plugin works great when we're using custom menus, as they utilize the wp_nav_menu function that your plugin adds a filter to.

    We often want to auto-generate our menus, however, and to do that we utilize the Genesis Nav Menu Amplified plugin (http://wordpress.org/plugins/genesis-nav-menu-amplified/). The issue is that this plugin outputs the menu without using the wp_nav_menu function, and your plugin therefor never adds a responsive select menu.

    So, I'm curious if you have ideas on how I might be able to utilize both of these plugins at the same time. I love the responsive select menu you've created, and would love to be able to use it on more of our projects that utilize auto-generating menus in Genesis. Any ideas? Plans for integrating this functionality? Thoughts?

    Thanks a ton!

    Hi Mickey,

    Glad to hear you've gotten good use out of the plugin! :)

    I'm not familiar with the Nav Menu Amplified plugin, and as I'm not a Genesis user it's hard to get a sense of exactly what it does. It sounds like it uses the old list_pages functionality to produce a menu?

    The RSM is specifically built to work with the WordPress 3 Menu System and wp_nav_menu - so it's not going to be able to affect any menus not generated with that function.

    I don't think it'd make sense to add that functionality to this plugin, as I don't want to bloat it (I'd rather keep it a simple plugin that does one thing well rather than introduce complexities that most users won't need). Writing the same functionality for a non-wp_nav_menu menu would require an entirely separate code base.

    I imagine writing a similar plugin to complement the Nav Menu Amplified plugin, or adding that functionality to the Amplified plugin itself, would really be the best way to go. I think adapting Chris Coyier's tutorial to a new plugin for NMA would actually be more straightforward than converting RSM to NMA :)

    All the best,

    Chris
