Support » Plugin: Iks Menu - WordPress Category Accordion Menu » Sub menu expands with keyboard

  • Hello,
    I am working on my website accessibility level and therefore I need my menus to be controllable with a keyboard. I would like my menu to expand when I select it with my keyboard and press ‘ENTER’ (or any other input).

    For the moment, it does not seem possible to do it (the element Styles on my page can’t be expanded with my keyboard).

    Do you have a solution for this issue?

    Thanks a lot for your help,

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    @tmwave, please upgrade Iks Menu to the latest version (1.8.8) – We’ve just added the accessibility feature:
    – You can navigate through the menu items using the “Tab” and “Enter” keys
    – You can also add specific styles for the “Focus” state for all items’ elements

    Thanks a lot for your answer, it is nice to see how fast and dedicated you are 🙂
    I upgraded Iks Menu to the version 1.8.8 as you suggested, but I am now experiencing a “keyboard trap”. That means I cannot leave the menu and I don’t see my focus element when I am supposed to be on the menu.

    Do you know what I can do to fix that? This is the page I have trouble with:

    Thanks a lot for your answer,

    Have a great day,

    Hello, @tmwave!

    1. We have found a small bug for this new feature that causes a keyboard trap and we will release a new version with a fix in the next 2 days.

    2. You can’t see your focus element because you probably haven’t set up “Focus” state for parent elements like “Le référentiel de conception ergonomique”.
    Please, try adding some styles at “Term” or “Link” > State “Focus”.
