    Is there another option instead of the Apple scroll wheel thing for navigation on a mobile device?

    We don’t like the drop down for the nav bar that is at the bottom of an iPhone. We’re looking for something nicer that would drop down from the actual menu.

    Are there any other options for the navigation menu on an iPhone or then the outdated spin wheel?

    As an example we’re looking for something like they have on CNN in the top right ..the 3 lines (we’d want it in the top left) but that type of navigation/drop down.

    Basically a nested drop down vs what is there now which is a old scroll type at the bottom of the device.

    BigBangWP doesn’t support 3 lines menu 🙁

    Try to find some plugin which transforms menu.

    This one looks fine https://wordpress.org/plugins/responsive-menu

    I think you are confusing what I’m asking.

    Using the responsive design, when using the site navigation on a mobile device, the site navigation becomes a scroll box at the bottom like this.

    We don’t want this to navigate like this.

    Are there other types of navigation we can use/install?

    We just think this scroll wheel thing is very outdated in look.

    Hi,

    this is not how it should look. I can’t open henninger.tv. I need valid URL so I can test it. Nobody else reported such an issue, so I think there’s a problem on your side.

    Please try http://www.henninger.tv on your iPhone and let us know if you can see it now (test site is live).

    We want another type of navigation other then that scroll thing

    I don’t think you are understanding the question.

    Do you see the navigation drop down?

    On an iPhone the navigation options show up as a scroll wheel at the bottom like this. We don’t want this type.

    We don’t want the scroll wheel, we want another type of drop down menu for the navigation. The scroll wheel type animation is outdated and old.

    We want something like they have on http://www.wordpress.org. See the navigation thing at the top left that then expands out?

    This is the type of navigation we are looking for on a mobile device.

    Do you know if it’s possible to create you own type of menu like that and replace your menu structure on mobile. Is that Java?

    It’s not that hard for freelancer with medium knowledge of jQuery (JavaScript).

    It’s not Java.

    Thank you. Can I make a request?

    I really think that Big Bang should be using one of these Toggle/nested menus. It is the standard now for navigating on a mobile device and what people are accustomed to now.

    The rest of the template is so modern and nice and then you get on the iPhone and the navigation (scroll bottom) is very outdated.

    Would be nice to have an updated mobile toggle menu for next Big Bang update.

    thx!

    Hi,

    I agree with you, but we’re not planning any new update on this theme. There are plugins which can change the menu layout.

    We’re not offering customization services, sorry 🙁

    Sorry, but I haven’t tested any of them. When I’ve searched for “responsive menu plugin” I saw some which (in theory) do what you need.
