Side menu behavior changed


Since this morning the behavior of the side menu functionality is changed.

When clicking the side menu button the menu appears, but after selecting an item from the menu the appropriate page is loaded but the menu doesn’t disappear automatically.

I did not change anything in the code?

Anyone with the same problems?


Also here: Why the side-menu doesn't work anymore in the ionic creator?


I’m also experiencing the same issue in two apps. In an older version of an app which I created some time ago (29 March 2017 ) as a backup, this issue doesn’t exist.


Hi JeroenDonkers1,
See By adding the angular directive ‘menu-close’ to each one of the menu items, the menu will close after pressing a menu item.


Thanks. This has worked for me.
