I am a newbie with Ionic (less than 1 week) and after searching for a couple of hours have hit a dead-end. I am dead certain that I am not forging any new territory here and that there must be an “easy” way to do this (well, I guess “easy” is relative because if you know how, it is easy! ).
I spawned a new project based off ‘tabs’. I have an ion-tab for ‘Home’, ‘Call’, ‘Chats’, and ‘Contacts’. I also added a side menu to the left. Inside this side menu I added multiple menu items including one called ‘User Settings’ with a ui-sref to go to the state associated with this settings page. I am able to navigate to the ‘User Settings’ if I anchor the view off of one of the views associated with the tab (i.e., ‘app-home’). It auto-magically adds a ‘Back’ button which works nicely. My problem is that I do not want to associate this “User Settings” state with a particular tab. I want this to be independent of a tab view and basically a common page. It doesn’t need to have a Back button though that would be nice. I know I could hack this together with some ng-if’s though that does not sound like the proper way to do it.
Any help is much appreciated. TIA
