Topic: Sidenav items don't expand

Mat Siems priority asked 8 months ago


Hi,

I'm trying to use the basic sidenav example https://mdbootstrap.com/docs/standard/navigation/sidenav/, but for some reason the sidenav items do not expand and collapse.

I have add the following css:

<link href="{{ url_for('static', path='/mdb/css/mdb.min.css') }}" rel="stylesheet"> 
<link href="{{ url_for('static', path='/mdb/css/modules/sidenav.min.css') }}" rel="stylesheet">

and js:

<script type="text/javascript" src="{{ url_for('static', path='mdb/js/mdb.min.js') }}"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="{{ url_for('static', path='mdb/js/modules/sidenav.min.js') }}">
</script>

Do I need anything else? Thanks, Mat

What happens if you delete below lines responsible for sidenav only?

<link href="{{ url_for('static', path='/mdb/css/modules/sidenav.min.css') }}" rel="stylesheet">
<script type="text/javascript" src="{{ url_for('static', path='mdb/js/modules/sidenav.min.js') }}">

Try running your project only on mdb.min.js and mdb.min.css imports. How does the sidenav behave?

Hi Michał,

It seems the "mdb.min.js" is the issue, as soon I remove it the sidebar works fine.

However I still need the 'mdb.min.js' as my modals stop working:

<script type="text/javascript" src="{{ url_for('static', path='mdb/js/mdb.min.js') }}"></script>

Any ideas why it is conflicting?

Hello, it should be enough. Your paths may be leading to unexisting files. Do you experience errors in the console? Is anything of above throwing 404? Could you provide the exact code that you used in your project? You can recreate it in snippets: https://mdbootstrap.com/snippets/

Hi Michał,

Ok, because in the default index.html you don't have the specific 'sidenav.min.js' only - - - -

it seems to be a js issue as have this error in the console:

Cannot read properties of undefined (reading 'toggle') at Module. (all.min.js:290:55085) at o (all.min.js:290:130) at EcommerceGallery (all.min.js:290:929) at all.min.js:290:940

Thanks, Mat
