Button Hidden On Child Views

By default, the menu toggle button will only appear on a root level side-menu page. Navigating in to child views will hide the menu- toggle button. They can be made visible on child pages by setting the enable-menu-with-back-views attribute of the ionSideMenus directive to true.

<ion-side-menus enable-menu-with-back-views="true">
