Category Dropdown in Mobile View

I was wondering if it would be plausible (whether through CSS or a component) to have a dropdown in the mobile view that is similar to that in desktop - meaning showing categories as opposed to Latest, Top, etc.

I’m working on it, and have something almost finished, I just need to improve a part of our internal library to allow it. Should come rather soon.

Did this end up being implemented?

No I didnt so far for mulitple reasons, we worked on double nesting categories support and reworked a lot of dropdowns internals.

Will update if we come up with a good solution.

Joffrey will that potentially include the tag picker too?

I’m confused, I’m waiting for this feature (category and tag dropdown in mobile view) but noticed that in my instance they’re already present on any category page, but nowhere else.

Is this the current behavior and I just missed it - or am I seeing it differently due to some plugin/TC? Is there currently any way of enabling this on the other pages?

That’s the behavior that has existed for a decent amount of time now… the category dropdowns appear on category topic lists, but not on /categories or aggregate pages like /latest /new /top.

It should be possible to get those dropdowns on those other pages in a theme today, but I don’t believe anyone’s tried it yet.

We’re still planning on doing this by default, but other features and customer work have taken priority.
