Default Re: Fashion Walk - NEW Responsive Template

is there any (brilliant) solution to use fashion walk in a site with near 100 categories, without using xmenus?

I'm affraid that all solutions must exclude xmenus as xmenus will not work with fashion walk.

This is something we are investigating, getting xmenus to work with Fashion Walk is not the problem for desktop and tablet versions - but because FW is responsive and xmenus is not, trying to get a complex xmenus system to "fit" into the space on a smartphone, that's the hard part.

Something we are looking into.

currently smartphone 100% compatibility is not my main goal, fashion is great and menus too, i wish to use together with standard pc layout in mind.

besides, categories handling is almost absent form fashion walk, for what i understood from video,

I think you need a javascript "switch" that completely changes the menu. When width = 350px hide the regular xmenu and change it out for a drop down select box with hierarchy for different sections. That's what I would do at least, I'm sure you have considered it.

And Mike, I know you are an advocate for Responsive design, but for some types of design and desired interface, a "different but equally functional" design or interface for smartphone is not such a bad idea...

What you are suggesting is exactly why I did not go "responsive" for my current store-- but instead I am using TXS xTreme AND xMobile (for smartphones only). However, my integrated wordpress blog is a responsive theme, and honestly, it's ok -- but the choices the theme designer has to make to squeeze the menus into the smartphone is essentially a different theme, with some common elements. It's basically 2-1/2 designs and 2 entirely different menu systems. But share common colors and design concepts.

If you are going to invent a different menu technology for smartphones, what else are you going to reinvent for the small screen? By this point, you are designing 2 templates with common thematic elements.

I say there is nothing wrong with a dedicated (or add-on) mobile (smartphone) theme/template/interface and x-cart makes it so easy to have that.

Hey Will -- here's a business opportunity for ya... optimize Fashion Walk for smartphones with mobile-friendly menu-ing and interface, and sell it as an add-on. Steal (use) some xMobile concepts, or use what you learned from xMobile and make another product. But for thematic consistency, make it an add-on for Fashion Walk. Or is the point of responsive is there is only one template for all screen sizes? If that's the argument, then a different menu technology must be used for smart phones, right?

Jeremy,
The major point of responsive is not just phones and tablets. Its 1366x768 vs 1024x768 vs 1440x900 vs 1920x1080 -these four resolutions comprise about 60% of the global internet usage today. The other 40% is about half smart phones/tablets and half irregular sizes, super small and insanely large. Responsive allows you to deliver an optimal experience at any size.

To me, responsive also means "responsive" as in responding quickly and nimbly, not just adapting to the window. And it means that touch should be considered as well as click and hover, swipe gestures on slideshows, etc.

And yes, you need to provide a different navigation system for phones. I can't see that as a problem, it's a feature. Well designed responsive sites can adapt different elements to provide the right experience.

I do advocate responsive design. IF you are designing a site in 2014, and you do not consider responsive then you are missing the boat. I don't think that you need to choose responsive or mobile, there is absolutely no reason that you cannot do both and allow your user to choose their adventure.

-Sorry for the thread hijack, Will.

Oh boy, I just purchased this mod without noticing this thread is dead.
Will is not answering tickets.
I did notice that there are 2 different menu navigations pending on screen size.
May be they are working on a way around the menu restriction mentioned above?
I noticed the responsive layout keeps changing even though there is no change in screen size during browsing session.
I was not able to install this while xgear was active.
Anyone else having success with FW in the last year?
