    Hi Guys

    I think I have found a bug in GeneratePress Premium.

    My clients site was using:

    Navigation Drop-down
    Click – Menu Item

    But I have had to change it to hover as when ‘Click – Menu Item’ is selected the top level page is no longer clickable, when you click it, it simply opens up the dropdown menu.

    My client particularly wants the ‘Click – Menu Item’ so it’s a bit of an issue.

    Cheers

    Hi there,

    how would that work ? Clicking on a Menu item can only do one thing – its not possible to have it open a sub menu and navigate to a new URL….

    Am i missing something ?

    Hi David

    Yes mate you are missing something, perhaps I haven’t explained myself very well.

    So here is the problem:

    • In the customiser under layout I had set the primary navigation to Navigation Drop-down = Click – Menu Item
    • When this setting is enabled the top level links do not work. In this case the links I mean are The Fund, The Centre, Charity Shop, Help Us, Community
    • Clicking on these links does nothing other than open the sub menu even though the top level links are pages
    • In the customiser under layout if I set the primary navigation Navigation Drop-down option to either ‘Hover’ or ‘Click – Arrow’ the top level links The Fund, The Centre, Charity Shop, Help Us, Community work again

    I hope that makes sense buddy.

    Cheers

    Nope i think i got that 🙂

    What i don’t get is the expected result of clicking a top level menu item that has a submenu. How can clicking a top level menu ( with a sub menu ) perform both actions ? ie. link to its own page as well as open the sub menu.

    Or does the client want the submenu to only be available if you’re on the parent page?

    OK can you try clicking on the link in the menu named ‘The Centre’ please mate. You will see it takes you to a page. Once you have done that let me know and I will change the setting for you to see the change.

    Right Mate, I have changed the setting under ‘Navigation Drop-down’ to Navigation Drop-down = Click – Menu Item. Now go back to the home page and try clicking on that link again.

    Thats the intended behaviour of the Click - Menu Item option.
    Generally users will add a dead link where the URL is just a # for those top level items. Then put all the links as sub (-sub) menus

    Right OK mate, but this used to work, that is the bit I’m not getting. I have changed it back to hover now.
