Support » Plugin: Kodeo Admin UI » Very pretty, but has some problems

  • Really nice, such an improvement over the WP skins.

    However.. it also interferes with the required dropdowns for the admin bar on the front end.

    It hides all dropdown menu items in the admin bar on the front end, meaning there are no quick links to the backend, and all plugins that require dropdowns for their options are also removed.

    It can be “fixed” with custom CSS, but this is really a very basic requirement and the fact it’s happening makes the plugin not worth using for the moment. I hope it’s fixed at some point, will try again later.

    Thank you for reporting this issue.
    We really appreciate your feedback.
    The dropdown menus are not supposed to be hidden.
    We investigated the issue and found out that it caused by temporary css rules.
    We now fixed this in the new version 1.0.8 that we already committed and that should be released very soon.

    Hi, thanks for responding.

    I’ll try again once the new version is released and will upgrade my review once I’ve had a chance to test.

    Thank you.

    Hi @kodeo

    So this appears to be more complex than just CSS, right?

    It looks like the problem is because WP is using JS to add and remove a “hover” class on the admin bar menu items (along with hoverintent).

    Without that classname, the dropdown menu items are simply not called into the DOM.

    I’m very keen to use this plugin because it’s such a huge improvement over the current WP default, but this thing on the front end is a killer since it removes access to a huge number of options that are absolutely required when working in the front end.

    Would it not make more sense to use the existing #wpadminbar ID for Kodeo, and then add classes instead of a different ID to change the styling for the admin bar. Doing this would allow you to inherit the functionality without affecting performance by overriding core functions, or duplicating JS when it already exists?

    sorry for keeping you waiting.
    Not sure about the issue you describe.
    What I realize is that the frontend bar has layout issues when the window size is smaller than 782px.

    To be more specific can you please tell me:
    – What OS and Browser
    – What Window Size
    – What Frontend Bar Type (Default or Mini)
