Text symbols in the navigation menu

Just faced the following issue. The problem is when I paste the font-awesome code in my navigation menu point I see the text <i class="fa fa-shopping-cart" aria-hidden="true"></i> (screenshot attached) instead of icon.

enter image description here

And I am faced with such a problem for the first time – I never faced this issue on all my previous websites. FontAwesome is successfully integrated – I can see all icons inside my website content.

I tried to:

  • deactivated my custom theme and activated WP default themes
  • deactivated all my plugins
  • cleaned cache etc
  • checked my .htaccess file

But unfortunately nothing helped.

The Importance Of Good Navigation

Navigation is possibly the most important element in web design. If users can't find their way around the site, they will leave it or will miss some important content.

A menu or list of categories should feature on the home page, with all internal pages interlinked appropriately. Users should see a link back to the home page from any part of the site.

Category names should be familiar to users and they can be listed in alphabetic order or in order of importance.

Accessibility – NVDA not reading text in navigation using arrow keys

am facing an issue with NVDA screen reader where in its not reading the links or text in a navigation.

Link – https://codepen.io/yogesharora28/pen/WNNPQKV

Am using arrow keys to navigate in NVDA, and if i move from a sub menu to next menu, for e.g. going from “home” and reading the items in its sub menu, moving next to “About us” menu, it wont read “About us”, instead reads the sub menu items of “about us” Any idea what could be going wrong?

What’s the best practice for screen navigation after invalid user input?

Consider an Angular app with many user inputs over screens A, B and C. Screen C needs valid inputs from A and B; B from A only; and A is independent. Suppose while on screen B the user enters invalid inputs.

Question: What navigation should I support for B in this case?

My current thinking is to disallow navigation to C due to data validity issues. But what about navigating back to B? On the one hand, there are no validity issues, and the user may want to look up screen A to help with screen B inputs. On the other hand, this would complicate the app’s state management. An alternative is to disallow such navigation, possibly with an option to restore the last valid inputs at B. As I lack experience in UX, I’d appreciate answers to help me with this trade-off.

Is it a norm in android apps to only have bottom navigation only on parent activities

I have checked multiple apps, and in most of them, bottom navigation is only visible on parent activities, when i go in any inner activity bottom navigation goes away, so my question is that is there any guideline regarding this available in material design, or everyone is just following this approach without any proper guideline,

and is it a right approach to have bottom navigation only on parent activities.

and in which cases we hide navigation on child activities, if not in all.

For example, i have an item in navigation Team, when user taps on it i open Team Screen, which contains 5 items, so when user further goes into these items i disable navigation, is it the correct approach?

Add button for a modal box in my navigation

I have the following navigation in my site.

enter image description here

The first 3 items are normal links to other pages in my site. The last orange link opens a modal box.

This is how I have written it in code

    <?php wp_nav_menu(['menu' => 'Main menu', "container" => "", "menu_class" => "desktop-menu"]); ?>     <a class="open-modal-registration passion-one bg-orange white" href="#">Einfach anmelden und kostenlos studieren</a> 

I have a menu that can be customized from the Control panel, and then the orange button is hardcoded.

enter image description here

Now comes my problem. I would like to be able to reorder the items in the navigation in a way that I can also reorder the orange button, and put it, lets say, between “Page #1” and “Page #2”.

To do this, I guess I would have to add it to my menu from the Control Panel, but I do not see any proper way to do this. All that can be added to the menu are

  • Custom links
  • Pages
  • Posts
  • Categories
  • Tags

And none of those elements seem the right one to define a button with such a functionality.

How could I solve this?

Home or back button as first item in navigation bar?

A bit of background:

I’m in a project where we’re building an android system service (meaning it will work regardless of which app is currently in the foreground) for an action bar that will overlay any app and contain some actions/controls. Some of the actions/controls in the bar will include e.g home, back, minimize the bar +3 more.

To my question:

What would be the most logical order for the items in the action bar?

Home feels weird to have as the first item because back is usually located in the top left corner. But having home anywhere else (even as the second item) feels misplaced in relation to the other options.

Any suggestions?

Permanently Remove Current Navigation Column SharePoint 2013

I’ve built a Policy Library for my company by using a Wiki Page Library on SharePoint 2013.

The user is directed between pages via hyperlinks.

I’ve added the following CSS to a Script Editor to remove the Current Navigation Column from each page (to create more of a website feel for the user):

<style type="text/css">    #sideNavBox{       display:none;    }   </style>   

Essentially, this has worked pretty well. Occasionally though the Navigation Column appears for a couple of seconds when the user navigates between the pages (i.e. appears unhidden). The page then reverts to the full screen view.

If someone could provide some code to ensure the Navigation is permanently hidden it would be much appreciated. I should mention that I’m a SharePoint novice and do not have access to SharePoint Designer.

Settings API tabbed navigation

I’ve created a subpage of WooCommerce and I am trying to add tabbed navigation. The tabs work, but I can’t get the fields setup properly so they display correctly. They all display regardless of my if, but only the first one (settings) is saving. Can you please tell me where I am going wrong?
