  1. I made a ul list and tried it on my browser, but when I made my browser smaller to mobile size, the list disappeared. I did it with the class and the same thing happened.

  2. This is great – one question, how do you actually make use of it? I have added links to other pages in the A tags e.g; clients.html

    if clients.html is a fresh page, this gets rendered and the menu disappears, if I replicate the menu code in clients.html, when the page loads, the menu is back in its default (collapsed) state.

    How do i get it to keep its expanded state and show a content page?
