Unclickable menu items with Mobile Kit Pro

I set some top level menu items to be unclickable and that works when using a web browser.  I added the Mobile Kit Pro and now the menu items are clickable.  I tried adding EnableNonClickablePageLinks="true" to the layout.master in the mobile skin but that didn't help.  Is it possible to have unclickable links with the mobile kit?

Also, is there any documentation for adding another main menu option to the mobile menu?  Next to the Tools menu option I would like to have a link for "join" that will go directly to a page at /join.aspx.

Re: Unclickable menu items with Mobile Kit Pro

The Mobile Kit Pro menu does not currently support unclickable menu items. This is the first time anyone has asked for that so I will log the request in our project tracker. Generally unclickable menu items have been used in desktop skins that use flyout menus that flyout on hover but hover is not really a concept on touch devices so we didn't really think about implementing non clickable items. I'm not entirely sure it will work because the mobile menu shows child page based on the current page url that is active, it does not show child pages in the menu unless you are actually on the parent page. All I can promise at this point is that we will look into it and see if there is something we can do that will make sense and function efficiently.

The main tabs are just jqueryui tabs using the same kind of markup used with jqueryui tabs elsewhere in mojoportal and in content template examples. You could easily add another tab if you want to by editing markup in the layout.master file.

Best,

Joe

Re: Unclickable menu items with Mobile Kit Pro

This is a bit of a problem, I agree. Not sure if there's an easy fix as Joe mentions. I have a number of sites where a main menu button isn't clickable but the child pages are. Ideally on mobile you could click and expand a non-clickable menu, but it wouldn't navigate to a page.

What I do as a work around is replicate the child page navigation on that non-clickable page. That way in mobile you just see a simple page menu (could use child menu module). This actually works fine. It's a little extra work, but gets the job done.

Re: Unclickable menu items with Mobile Kit Pro

fyi, I've been working on support for unclickable menu items in Mobile Kit Pro and expect to ship an updated release soon that will support it. Clicking the unclickable item will expend its child pages in the menu rather than navigating.

I'll post here again when the new release of Mobile Kit Pro is available, hopefully within the next couple of days. I've got it working on my local machine just need to do a little more testing before releasing it.

Thanks,

Joe
