    When you build a menu, sometimes you add a custom link with a # character so you can hang other menu items off it. Other times menu items that have sub menus, are clickable themselves. Is it feasible to somehow underline only those with a full link when hovering ? Or will I have to create custom menus and move the top menu item to the submenu.

    I really hope that makes sense.

    My concern is that those items that are top menu items that actually link elsewhere, don’t get clicked, because people may think its just a holding menu link.

    Hi there,

    Are you only talking about the parent menu items here?

    If so can you first add a class like hover-underline to the menu items you want the underline to show?

    Hi, thanks for the response.

    Not really, I am talking about only underlining those with a full url instead of placeholder menu items.

    So when you create a menu, typically you’d have

    Menu 1
    Submenu 1
    Submenu 2

    Now Menu1 can be a full link, say to an archive of a category, or it could be a placeholder ie, it doesn’t link anywhere. I’d like to be able to underline or highlight only menu items that link somewhere.

    The placeholder menus are usually just a custom link with # as the link entry.

    Hi there,

    what Leo said is correct – although it may be easier to think it of the other way eg. add a class of no-hover to your custom # links

    Then in your CSS you can do: li:not(.no-hover) this will exclude any elements with the no-hover class from the hover styles you have

    Genius ! of course, never thought of the not parameter. Plus double negatives always have my head in a spin. Thanks David !
