1 - HOW TO MAKE PARENT MENU BUTTONS INACTIVE?

The parent menu buttons that open sub-menus should be inactive (dead) but they are all taking action in my case.
If nothing else they go to blank pages. What do I need to do to make sure parent buttons of sub-menus do not take any action when clicking on them?

When I go to elements there is LINK TO and TARGET but even if I leave them empty the buttons action . . .
ORDERING, BENEFITS, CONTACT US, PARTNERS should only be there as pictures not as active buttons.

Currently I have nothing in link to and target and hoover settings equals active.

Or do I simply choose parent in TARGET?
Will try if that is what _parent means in there

Well it works better now with _parent in TARGET
However by clicking on them they all load HOME page now. Better than blank pages but still not totally dead.

Hi Cintaku,

Far as I know, and this works for me, simply go to the Elements tag and select the button you want to kill. Down in the box that says 'Link to' you will see a default http://

DELETE the http:// and your menu button should be dead. Give it a try and let me know how that works.

Hi Cintaku,

I know exactly what your looking for. Enter the following as the href:

javascript:void(0)

This will stop the parent from being active.

Thank you gunsmoke and Steve.

gunsmoke - Within MENU BUILDER both my link to and target are empty on all parent buttons.

Steve - Interesting thought. I am using MENU BUILDER and as such I get HTML element within RSD that only shows class and ID ... there is no href: . Unless you mean editing inside HTML code.

Scott reckons that the only way to do it is to remove text-menu-link class after exporting. I am playing around with options suggested by all of you.

Put that javascript code in place of where would put the page name . So for example instead of putting services.html put that javascript code right within menu builder. I use it all the time when I have sub menus.

Steve,

YOU ARE LEGEND!!

Came home and typed javascript:void(0) in href: in MENU BUILDER and magic happened

1 - I always thought you either use RSD or HTML but this is actually between! = typing html instruction in RSD
2 - Maybe an idea to add another option there called _void on top of already available _self, _top, _parent,... :):)

2- HOW TO AVOID COPY PASTE SAME HTML CODE INTO EACH PAGE MENU HTML ELEMENT AND INTO EACH SETTING ON EACH PAGE AFTER EDITING MENU BUILDER MENU?


After each editing of menu with menu builder you need to copy paste html code twice (settings and html menu element) plus copy paste replace old files with new (once)

My website has got 15 pages. Is there any way to avoid performing above process 15 times (30 times copy paste) when updating menu that is same on each web page?

The HTML elements do not seem to be linked in way that if you change HTML element in one it is changing in others unless you have unique class etc. not sure if that would be possible and practical around HTML anyway.

Perhaps you have to suffer and do it 30 times.
