Does someone know how I could add a tag link that is actually relative to the current route? I’d like to use a tag About and offer it as a top link it to an About-topic relative to the category a user is in.
E.g. user is in category /c/feedback/7. Choosing About will direct to /tags/c/feedback/7/about.
I’d like to use the component on an instance but various behavior is not working:
When using “hide default links” it’s hiding the first two child items (Latest and Categories). But when one navigates to a category, the default “Categories”- Link is already not shown in the menu. Then this setting hides an additional navigation item, the otherwise third in line.
I added a menu item for a direct category link (/c/game-talk). When I navigate to it, it doesn’t get an active class and is not highlighted. Instead, the “Latest” link is highlighted and has an active class. This is not the default “Latest” link though, but one I added through the component (only linking to /latest)
Actually, the “Latest” link does not get an active class either when it is not named “Latest”. So the active class on the current route doesn’t seem to work at all because of the component. This is the view on /latest but with another name for the Latest-link:
To me, this is checking if the page URL is the same as the location of the nav bar URL, and if so it returns the result of contentFilterMode === filter, both variables being a bit unclear to me. If the condition fails, it looks like it just runs the regular logic of whether something should be marked as active (which is why my non-custom links seem to work fine). The problem is that while this code properly runs once per navigation link, the location variable always seems to be “categories” so the if statement is always false for custom links. Furthermore, even if I fix the “location” variable by replacing it with this.get("content").href, the return value is also always false because the filter variable is also always set to “categories”.
Normally I’d just do a PR to fix this, but the actual root problem still eludes me. I have come up with a workaround that works for me but slightly alters the documented functionality of this component so I’d rather not PR it. I think there will be edge cases where it doesn’t work also, like if your hompage is set to /latest
