Opening a side menu from a list

I was playing around with the start template, and I decided to add a sidemenu. It seems, and I confirmed by looking at some other demos, that the side menu cannot be dragged open from any area where there is a list.
Is there anything that can be done about that?

I’ve used a list and side menu before and could drag to open it. Any codepens where I could take a look?

Have a look here:

If you notice, you can drag the menu open from anywhere except the list item.

Good catch, best bet would be to open an issue ticket on github. Seems to be an issue with the ion-list directive. I changed it to use just the bare css classes and everything worked fine. Until the issue is resolved, I would use the css.

What do I lose by using the bare css classes as opposed to the directive?

If you choose not to use the directives, you’ll loose the addition functionality

@mhartington Is right on this. If you don’t need the added functionality of deleting, reordering, etc, there’s really no point in having this code in your app. I imagine it even adds a bit of overhead that could slow your app down. I almost always use just simple lists:

<div class="item" ng-repeat="invitation in invitations">
