I have an issue which I can’t figure out the CSS to fix. The issue is also on your demo. The padding on the inside of the panel isn’t even in chrome browser. For example look at the space to the left and right of the menu from the edges of the panel in firefox, it’s even. Then look in chrome, there is more space on the right side. Same issue in safari (so some type of webkit browser issue maybe). Do you have a fix for this?

Hi,

Congratulations for choosing this plugin and thanks a lot for using it. With regards to your concern, the spacing issue is the browser difference on adding scroller on hover. For some reason the firefox doesn’t add extra width. I’ll let you know when I’ve fixed this issue. Thanks for reporting and my apology for late reply, I’m not always working during weekends. Thanks!

Hi,

Thank you again. Please add this to your custom css to fix the issue :

.gilidPanel-wrap::-webkit-scrollbar{ display: none; }

Feel free to contact me when you encounter any issues. Thanks!

Hi, can the panel open on hover? Would it create any conflicts? Thanks.

Hi,

Congratulations for choosing this plugin and thanks a lot for using it. With regards to your concern, I’ll be very happy to make the click to hover if you can send the website link and admin login info using the form on my profile page. Thanks!

We need the menu inside our panel to act like an accordion instead of a toggle. So that when we open a 2nd drop menu with the + symbol, if we had one open already it would shut the first one. How do we set that? thanks

Hi,

Happy Holidays to you and to your family :) Thanks a lot for choosing this plugin. My apology for late reply, with regards to your concern there is no option for accordion effect as of the moment. Thank you very much for the suggestion, will think of it and will let you know once added. Thanks!

Hi – Thanks for a great plugin. Apparently I have an issue now with the plugin – only when I add the script :Open Panel the plugin function – otherwise it doesnt show as a kind of top sliding layer. Thanks for any help pikaya

Hi,

Thanks for the link. Just checked and it seems to be working fine. Please check the site as logout user and you’ll see the opener ;) Let me know how it goes. If you can send the admin login info using the form on my profile page, I’ll be very happy to check the widget contents. Thanks!

hello, presale quesiton, nay chance youa dded the always on feature? I sow someone asked you before but all you said was to ask after purchase for aid…

i want a perminate sidebar for most of the pages on my site, additionally; does this work like a sidebar? somepages i can set the as having different widgets the others?

Hi,

Yes, it will always be on. You just need to control the widget contents visibility via widget-options so you’ll have different panel contents. Thanks!

Cheers,
phpbits

just to make sure, by on i mean open not just have that button to ope and close it. I need it to be open always without the buttont o close it and “pause” the page (dim it)

Hi,

There’s no feature for that as of the moment. Currently it serves as sliding sidebar. Thanks!

Cheers,
phpbits

Help please!

I was wanting to use your side bar as a menu side bar on a theme x website. The designer tells me that this not possible and that the whole header bar will have to be changed and only developers can do that. I had thought that customisation was the point behind Wordpress and theme x in particular. Any suggestions would be welcome.

Hi,

Thanks a lot for the plugin interest. Regarding your concern, you can use GilidPanel along side with Theme X, you can also trigger the panel opener via menu on your header section. If you can elaborate the problem that your designer told you that would be great. If you can post screenshot, that would be very helpful. Thanks!

Hi kabayan, does this plugin support shortcode? I was planning to use ninja form when trigerred my sign up form will show up. Let me know. Thanks

Hi,

You might need to contact the theme developer to ask how to add class on the button via shortcode. Let me know what’s the response. Thanks!

Cheers,
phpbits

Hi I contacted them already and heres the reply Unfortunately, there is not this function in shortcode

If you want to put code css=”open-gilidpanel” in button shortcode admin, you need to edit code, you can go to wp-content\plugins\u-shortcodes\shortcodes\button.php file and modify it by yourself.

How can I do it ? :)

Hi,

Please contact me here : https://phpbits.net/contact/ and send the website login info and will be very happy to edit the plugin file and add the class. Thanks!

The menu/icon button will not close the panel on mobile devices! Why!? http://www.structuralbuildings.com Thanks.

Hi,

Thank you for reporting the issue, it seems that we had a customization with the opener hover action and your copy is on outdated version. Updating to latest version should fix the issue but the custom code will be overwritten and you have to add it again manually. Thanks!

Hi phpbits, this is just a feedback message to say Thank You SO MUCH ! And let the other know about your trustfull skills. I purchased GilidPanel few months ago, and i asked some extra features (customizations) as special orders. All the work has been done very fast. He keeps the way for me to update as regular doing all the customization in a very light-weight secondary plugin. Communication is very smooth. So this is 5 BIG stars to you and the plugin itself. Very easy to work with in the widget panels and drag & drop features. In one word : P E R F E C T! Thank you very much again !!

Hi,

Thank you very much for the feedback! I really appreciate it :) Feel free to contact me anytime when you have any concerns. Again, thank you very much!

After update to latest plugin version, the open/close icon is missing. I selected it again in the settings, but it only shows up as a square. http://www.we8that.com/. Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Checked the site and it seems to be working fine. The icons are showing on mobile view since you’ve hide it on desktop. Thanks!

Can this be used to replace the menu on a full size website

Hi gopixel1988,

Thank you very much for the plugin interest. Regarding your concern, yes you can use this as a replacement with your website’s menu if you want it to be sliding. Just take not that you need to hide/remove your existing menu and this is not a plugin feature, you have to do it manually. Thanks!

Hi I’m interested in purchasing this plugin I was wondering if it is possible to have the sidebar visible on screens a certain width and collapsed for other widths e.g screens larger than 960px visible but screens smaller collapse the menu?

Thank you

Hi,

Thank you very much for the plugin interest. Regarding your concern, there is no option for that feature as of the moment and you have to add it manually via css. I suggest adding auto panel open when browsing large screens, this will require minimal customization. Let me know if you have any other concerns. Thanks!

The blog is http://dominika.co and I dont want an opening icon, I only want ‘full menu’ text to open the sidebar (as it does now) but the cross that appears that closes the sidebar I want to keep there. Could you help? Thanks for this great plugin

Hi,

Thank you very much for choosing this plugin and I’m glad you like it. My apology for late reply, regarding your concern please add this to your custom css or theme’s style.css :
