Disable swipe on sideNav

Topic: Disable swipe on sideNav

Arnt Oddvar Pedersen pro asked 3 years ago


I'm working on optimizing a template I'm creating for mobile use. I have 2 buttons that both activate a sideNav on the left and right edge of the browser.

On mobile however, these menus are quite.. "twitchy" as in they'll get stuck when swiping left/right and it's even possible to use the "pinch method on screen to open both menus at once, locking you out of the website pretty much.

Is it possible to disable swipe support on the sideNav menus?

I think for now is not possible. Sorry about that.
