Topic: Side menu in latest mdb jQuery version not working

FvsJ101 priority asked 11 months ago


Expected behaviorenter image description here

If i copy all the files from mdb v4.8.10 the side menu collapses and works like it should.

Actual behaviorenter image description here

if I copy over the latest version over the side menu pushed the content to the right but stays open.

Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.)

Hi,

As written in the sidenav documentation, version 4.19.0 introduced some syntax that may not be compatible with previous versions. To check if this is your case please provide a code snippet of your sidenav. Without it, it will be hard to say what is causing your issue.

Keep coding, Marcin

Hi there,

You have to use the following syntax on init: $(".button-collapse").sideNav({slim: true});

It was also updated in the code snippet you sent.

Keep coding,  Mikołaj from MDB

Hi, I actual got it work, I revert everything and added the 4.19 version, but now i see there is a sideNav2 where is a full example for using 4.20 version with the slim view side menu?


Mikołaj Smoleński staff commented 11 months ago

Yes, there is an alternatove new version of sidenav. It should also work as in the snippet.

Keep coding,  Mikołaj from MDB
