    Hello,

    I’m using GP 2.1.2 and GP Premium 1.6.2.

    In the customiser, I have the Primary Navigation Dropdown set to “Hover” — which is perfect for what I want for desktop behavior.

    However, for mobile, I notice that the small dropdown arrow must be tapped to open the second level sub-menu — not the whole text entry (as in what is described at https://generatepress.com/forums/topic/menu-on-small-screens-expands-only-on-clicking-arrow-not-text/).

    I see there was a plugin for this solution — but that is 3 years old.

    Is there a better way to handle this now with more updated GP versions?

    NOTE for admins for the listed URL:

    While at the moment in my main menu some parent items (eg under Accommodation) have an action page (eg BROOME) — on mobile, I’d like all of the menu items with a drop-down level of pages to be clickable this way (the whole row, not just the tiny arrow). I will be removing the parent item links to actual pages, so they are just text headings within the menu (as you can see under Packages, albeit they will have pop-out child menus).

    Hopefully that makes sense!

    Thanks,

    Dean

    I think I’ve solved this.

    If I use “#” as the link for the item in my menu, I can tap anywhere in the row and it toggles open/closed the child/secondary menu below this item.

    That solves my needs. I can just replace the actual parent page in the menu with a custom link/text.

    Hi Dean,

    the parent menu needs to be an empty link ie. just contain a # and then the whole title will become clickable on mobile.

    PS: I had searched the support forums — I should have searched the Documentation!

    It’s here: https://docs.generatepress.com/article/mobile-navigation/

    Onto my next task 🙂
