How to get Side Menu only on Home Page?

I am struggling a little with how to get the side menu only on the home page of my app. I am using the sidemenu starter and any page that is listed in the menu will display the side menu button on that view and not the back button. If I navigate to one of those pages using a button not on the menu, it shows the back button. I would rather just have a back button on those pages all the time and not a side menu button.

Are there any examples of how to set up the views so the menu is only on one page or only pages I want it on?

Do I need another view template and use it as an abstract state when navigating to those views?

I created this code pen and added Check-In to a navOnly abstract state, but the back button does not show.



Come on? No help? It gets dead on here sometimes!
