Ionic side menu and tabs


Hi there,

I would like to do a thing, really simple in a native way, I would like to use the side menu to push some content inside my tab view, but when I do it, the problem is that I didn’t have any back button visible and I don’t know how to manage it.

The simplest way is to add a route with the views parameter and put my tabView like this :

.state('app.about', {
		  url: '/about',
		  views: {
			  "tab-home": {
				  templateUrl: 'modules/About/about.html',
				  controller: 'AboutCtrl as About'

And so my side menu looks like this :

<ion-side-menu side="left">
    <ion-header-bar class="bar bar-header bar-dark"></ion-header-bar>
    <ion-content has-header="true">
        <ion-item href="#/app/home" menu-close>Home</ion-item>
        <ion-item href="#/app/about" menu-close>About</ion-item>
        <ion-item href="#/app/contact" menu-close>Contact</ion-item>

But I don’t have any back button and on stackoverflow I tried all solution, nothing really matched.

Can you help me here ?

Thanks in advance for your answer.
