Question about side menu


Hi there
I just started using ionic a few days ago. now i am stuck at figuring out the side menu.
so i this page

<ion-view title="Flashcard" >
<ion-nav-buttons side="right">
	  <button class="button button-clear button-positive" ng-click="doSomething()">

and i have this side menu content in menu.html. my question is how do i open the menu.html when i toggle the side menu ?

i’ve looked at the example side menu project, from what i understand is that the page is called here

.state('app', {
      url: "/app",
      abstract: true,
      templateUrl: "templates/menu.html",


You can not activate abstract states directly, they should have child states. Please refer to documentation.
