I am working on my first Ionic project and I need to have a working side menu and tabs project where each tab has a primary page but may have many pages under it. The general idea can start with this:
The problem is when you switch pages from the side menu, the tab bar goes away because you are pushing a child page to the nav controller which is not called through the TabsPage (as shown in the video demo in the link above). Pushing TabsPage to the nav controller first works, but it causes an extra load, puts something else in the history, and isn’t correct. I imagine you have to send the page to the Tabs page and set the active tab to where the child page “lives” but I’m not seeing how to do that without having the navigation hit the Tab’s root page.
Can anyone point me in the direction of how best to accomplish this?
