I had a similar problem, so I thought, all I had was four black bars, I needed to swipe the mobile screen  to the right to get the navigation links to show. I think the settings default to that but not go around to checking it out yet

Learning the new platform ... but I also can't see my navigation menu on the mobile preview (or when I use my cell phone) - advancedceramictech0.homesteadcloud.com. Can someone tell me how to correct this?

Do you have the three black bars? That is how the navigation will show up initially on the mobile version. Click or tap it and it opens the menu. Do the bars show up anywhere on the page? I had issues with a navigation on one site - it refused to stay at the top. I re-did the header and navigation and that fixed it.

HI Eric, did my post above sound familiar. If you click on the bars in edit mobile view you will see you have options with settings. I will be honest and say I have yet to play with the mobile version in any great depth so not sure whet the settings will offer.

Could you grab a screenshot of your mobile index page Eric... Drew or Todd from Homestead will be in here and it would help show the problem.

Eric click on pages in the side menu and check to be sure the hide in Mobile isn't selected.

Good thinking but no pages are hidden. I'm sure I must be missing something easy like that tho!

Have you clicked or tapped on those 3 dots on the right?

And just out of curiosity what happens when you click the X next to Home

The 3 dots give me "Share Link ..." "Copy link" "Help" and "Open in Chrome".
The X closes the browser window :(

The color of your three bars is white which is why you can't see it.

In your Mobile editor Move your cursor around in the general area of where the X is in the image. A tag should come up that reads Pages Menu. Click on that then choose Style and you can change the icon color there.

It wasn't so easy ... took me a while to get there!  Glad that worked and good luck with your site.  :)
