The enhanced nav walker allows two key features to the wp_nav_menu output.

  1. Mobile support for touch drop downs (the native bootstrap way) and hover support for desktops. One of the biggest gripes of Bootstrap has always been: How can I use hover for the menu links as well as touch on mobile devices with the same code? After much trial by fire and failure I’ve found this to be the best solution.  When the enhanced navigation is selected through customizer we enqueue devdmbootstrap4_enhanced_nav.js with this enhance nav walker. Through this JS we detect if it is a touch device and simply use the first menu item with children as the trigger for the touch and hover. Touch items will be ignored as an actual link and only their children will be able to be selected on mobile devices.
  2. Menu Icons. When using the enhanced nav system, whatever you put into the “description” field of the menu items will be used as the class of an <i class=””></i> element that is output before the Navigation Label. If you are editing your Menus in the wp-admin dashboard you can open the screen options at the top and under “Show Advanced menu properties” check the box “Description” to show this input when you are editing a the menu items.
