Mobile admin menu - can't scroll

Post by gavinhanly » Fri Oct 18, 2019 3:35 pm

I have an issue with the mobile admin menu - wondering if anyone can help.

On iOS devices, when you're on the mobile (hamburger) menu, if you select "components", you can view a maximum of 13 components in the resulting dropdown. If you're on a desktop browser, resize to mobile size, you can see this but you can also scroll to see more than 13, using a mouse scroll wheel.

On mobile (iOS anyway) this functionality doesn't exist. So if you have more than 13 components installed, you won't be able to access them all.

Am I missing something? Is there a way to mimic scroll wheel behaviour on an iPhone? Os is there another way to access a component if you can't get to it from the main drop-down?

Tap on components submenu again (twice) and you will be able to scroll..

When I tap on components once, it opens the submenu, and then again, it closes the sub-menu. But I can't scroll the submenu itself. Unless I'm missing something obvious?

I can confirm this issue - exactly as described for me too

iPhone 7 Plus, using Safari on iOS 13.1.3

Same with Firefox on this system.

Is there a way to get a shortcut to a component if you can't get to it in the nav? In this specific case, it was to SH404SEF.
