Ok, so using the "ui-responsive-panel" class on a page prevents swiping or clicking-in-the-content of the page from closing a panel after the screen 55em wide. That's awesome, but it's only half of what I'm trying to do.

I need the panel to be open by default when the page opens or when the page is re-sized to at least 55em wide...

Any suggestions?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
