I’m looking to use the tabbar as a general form of navigation for my app. It works fine when navigating to a tab or page that is a child of the current tab however when navigating to a standalone page which does not come under one of the tabs I lose the tabbar. In short I would like for the tabbar to stay on the page across all views as the primary source of navigation even when visiting a page that does not logically come under one of the tabs.
Is there a good way to achieve this while still using the ionic tabbar and thus keeping all the out of the box functionality that comes with it? As an alternative I’ve looked at implementing a custom tabbar/footer possibly by using the ionic toolbar component however I thought I would throw the question out to the community before I got stuck in to see if anyone has come across a similar issue?
