    Hello Zed and team Cryout! This one is totally stumping me, but that’s nothing new. ; ) Would this be possible with CSS?

    Background: As you know when the regular menu is active, on screens greater than 800px wide, hovering over a parent item opens the submenu, and a user can go to any page, or they can move their mouse away to disengage the menu.

    However when the mobile menu is active, parent menu items open with a tap, and then if tapped again, they go to that page. There’s no way for a visitor to close a menu if they don’t like what they see there.

    Would it be possible to add a forward arrow on the mobile menu, after the parent menu text, which opens and closes the submenu (perhaps changing to a down arrow when it’s open), whereas tapping the parent menu item text would do what it normally does, go to that page?

    Oh:

    There’s no way for a visitor to close a menu if they don’t like what they see there.

    They can tap the menu icon again and the whole menu, including open submenu(s), will close. So this is really not a big deal.

    But if there were a snazzy way to let users just open and close a submenu without visiting a new page, as is possible with a mouse, I would still very much like to learn that.

    Hello Cryout! I guess I’m not the only one who’s stumped. ; )

    After struggling with plug-ins I found one that works (SlickNav). So anyone working on this would see that implemented on my site. But over here on my testing site, http://www.testing.davidweiss.net, I’ll leave it with the default Mantra mobile-menu. On that site, it’s “Page the First” that is the parent menu. I would still ideally like to customize this on my regular site (www.davidweiss.net) if possible rather than using a plug-in.
