    here is an update guys for iMenu. showing off widgets with groups and the responsive for the bar style menu. 
    there is a bug with the widgets when new ones are introduced the responsive menu stops working, but a page refresh takes care of that (believe it has to do with how it is observed, since i'm using IPS JS, might not be something i can fix, but since it only effects the admin who adds in a widget, i'm honestly not gonna worry about it too much :))
    I've redesigned the entire UX for the menu, as the other one looked cool (the previous videos), its javascript became a nightmare, and would be a nightmare to maintain. what i have now is very small in comparison and creates a better menu imho.
    I also haven't released an alpha on our site, cause there still seems to be a problem with hooks from applications being installed. I can get the JS and CSS to load in dev mode (and widgets to load and work in dev mode) but they will not load or work out of dev mode, again not to worried about it, will have to wait for an RC to see if its a problem with my code or a IPS bug.

    could also be caused by DB being accessed over a closed connection (causing a timeout), might want to fiddle with those settings too (or ask your host to pick optimal settings for you on it).

    ​the docked menu hides the post? can you show a picture of this? as i am not following a 100%.
     
    iMenu News:
    scrapped what i had for now, lots of what i was doing was proof of concept work, and a lot of it i did not like or it was very javascript heavy, which require more and more javascript to achieve simply things so i am reworking the way the front end works.

    yeah, the menus will just be bigger, knocking the search bar dimensions out of whack and docking wont work, but i don't think alpha 2 has docking, i'll get an alpha 3 out sometime today or tomorrow.

    updated to beta 3, it introduced a few issues, fixed some of them. will probably hold off on major styling and fixing of the front end when 4.0 is finalized so i'm not doing redundant work.

    beta 2 to beta 3 upgrade error
    on the first step, i get this error:
     
    A session had already been started - ignoring session_start()  
    I open up system/Dispatcher/Setup.php and go to line 180, and comment out session_start() fixes the problem.

    ​mostly mine, as the IPS ones did some things i personally didn't like, like the default menu sets much further to the left than imenu (you can see this in the previous videos before i decided to change it), and some of their css has weird paddings/margins that I was fighting against when i was adding in the icons and arrows. I'll try to use theirs when and where i can, waiting on the documentation on the responsive css, so i know what i need to do to get responsive to work with it.

    ​lol the spinning cog was just me playing with the form class from IPS 4.0 wanted to see if it would work, in the final it wont be spinning.

    another alpha showing video. pretty much showing what i have already, but much more refined this time, lots of the annoying bucks fixed, and i will be doing something different for the "slide" effect, as i don't much care for the way it is atm. let me know what you guys think

    fundamental CSS reset missing
    It seems in normalize.css, there are no rules for UL/OL, Firefox and Chrome will impose a 40px padding and varying margins to these two elements (possibly others). I've noticed several of the different UL/OL styles in IPS 4.0 wastefully including:
    margin:0px; padding:0px; when a rule added to normalize.css  like this:
    ul,ol{ margin:0px; padding:0px; } could remove the redundancy in the css, allowing skinners/dev's to apply their own padding/margin if so desired without having to fight the browser. Chrome reports in dev tools that its adding such styling, however in Firefox, it does not, so this small inclusion into the normalize.css could reduce the amount of headaches later on. that is just my two cents however.

    Okay another alpha showing of iMenu. This time i am showing off some of the refinements i've made since the last video and more of the capabilities.
    App menus that have attachment options, you can add menus children menus to it, but they will appear below the attachments. Magic blocks will convert into "mega" menus, having the children to the left, and the block content to the right. Children menus will not be able to be made into magic blocks or have the other two special features app menus can have (include featured and include popular), this might change, we haven't set it in stone yet.

    Showing off attach categories, include featured and include popular.

    Basically what these three things are:

    Attach Categories: This is just a generalized name, for the feature in Promenu 3.x of attach forums and attach categories. There are differences, mainly this will not create "editable" children menus, that will be controlled from the apps that has this feature. It was extremely complex how I had it in promenu 3.x and wish to keep it in iMenu, but make it work a lot better than it use to it. It was insane amount of code to keep the children menu synced with what was being done in the app. there were also numerious problems of extremely weird things happening when they were removed or moved out the parent, so they will only exist in the "cache" for iMenu. for people not familiar with the concept, basically if you have categories in the supported apps, this will attach them to that menu, using the permissions of those categories to determine if the end user can see them or not. with forums, it will list your forums/categories/sub-forums.

    Include Featured: this is simple, IPS 4.0 introduces "featured", if the app will not support this feature, it will still work, just work differently. In the forums, it will look for featured topics, from a starting date range, and return results. if it can not find any results in the specified date range, it will drop the "date range" from its query, and randomly grab the set number of records, regardless if they are featured or not. it will then store them in a cache, the time to keep them in the cache, is by days, after the cache is expired it will pull new ones.

    Include Popular: for forums this will basically, with in a number of days, pull the topics with the highest number of Replies, the cache for this will refresh by default every 30 minutes, or it can be configured, to keep the content fresh, in other apps it will use other criteria.
    ^ there will be an "extension" interface for these features, so apps that we did not include, can be built and included later on with a bit of effort, but nothing to hard (plan on doing up a guide once iMenu launches and I finalize everything involved).

    I'm really happy with how iMenu is shaping up, have not gotten a lot of feedback, a few likes here or there and the "alpha/beta" we are running is still looking for people willing to test. so if you like or dislike something that you've seen so far, let me know or if you want to be in the alpha/beta, Please PM and I will create you an account on our site, and include you into the proper group.

    We have not yet decided how to handle the upgrades from ProMenu to iMenu when it becomes available, we are strongly leaning towards if you agree to the new terms and renewal and have an active subscription to ProMenu, you will be added to iMenu customer list, this will also include basic owners (as there will not be a basic or plus edition, just the one edition as we would need to purposely gimp to make a basic edition and that goes against my ethos).
    There will more than likely not be an actual upgrade path (where iMenu takes ProMenu data, and uses it), but this is not set in stone atm.

    So again, let me know what you all think so far, any features you definitely want to see brought over from ProMenu 3.x to iMenu, or any features that you have in mind that wasn't in ProMenu. thanks.
