Custom hamburger menu links

This is a theme component that will allow you to easily add links the hamburger menu.

Samples

Desktop

Mobile


Settings

You add links via comma delimited values in this order:

Text,URL,Location,Target

Text
is the name of the link that shows on the menu.

URL
is the path you want the link to have. You can use relative paths like

/tags/funny
or
/t/231

if you prefer.

Location
can have one of two values. Either the letter g or the letter f

Use “g” if you want the link to appear in the generalLinks section:

or use “f” if you want the link to appear in the footerLinks section:

Target (optional)
Use “blank” if you need the link to open in a new tab.

Thats a nice addition, thanks for that. It’s already installed :smiley:

Could you add a target option so that it is possible to open the link in a new tab/window (if no target is given just use “_self”)

Please add an option to place the link at the very top of the dropdown panel :slight_smile:

I might have a go at this myself at some stage (have to learn a wee bit first), but I’m putting my thoughts down here for now:

Feature Requests:

No 1: Allow hover text. This is now used for the core hamburger links, and would be very helpful

No 2: Merge with Rob’s fork, which is clearly a good idea:

No 3: Allow target="_blank" as per Richie (also clearly a great idea):

No 4: Allow more control of link ordering (likely very tricky!)

Is there a way that the custom hamburger menu links can be translated depending on the user interface language?

For example, I could wrap yaml translation files into a custom plugin, but I’m not sure which translation keys I could use.

No practical way to do this?

I got really excited this evening when I saw this!!

I was soooooo much hoping that there was a new feature to open links to a target="_blank" :scream:

Jumped straight on GitHub to see what was new!

That seemed to be the most requested feature and it wasn’t too hard to add support. That’s it for now though :slight_smile:

Hey quick question, how does one localize the custom hamburger menu text? I want to fully localize my forum and I can’t seem to find the text anywhere.

This is a useful component. But can we add font awesome icons there? It would be great to show social media profile icons there, so that people can follow our social profiles easily.

I added support for icons, you could try out this fork of the component: GitHub - nolosb/discourse-custom-hamburger-links-with-icons

Two notes on usage:

  • The icon would be the first item in the list:

    If you want a link without icon, just don’t add it, but keep the trailing comma ,

  • If the icon is not included by default, remember to add it to the icon list:

Can you puch these changes to the official Theme component? It’s always better to have the official Theme component installed as it’s going to be maintained with Discourse future updates.
