Amanda Shafer said: It's a parent page, with a subpage under it. However, it won't allow a user to click on it to open that page. In fact, any of my page that are a parent page with subpages are not "clickable".
Yes! Parent pages are acting like group pages once the parent page has any child pages under it. This appears to be a bug in the Sitefinity 6.1 Navigation widget, Horizontal with dropdown menus template. If two pages contain content, and you move one page underneath the other, the parent page is no longer available from the navigation menu even though it is not a group page.
From an administrator's perspective, it feels like a bug. The click event can be commented out in the code, but that really shouldn't be needed.
A Sitefinity 6.1 site uses a navigation menu with these settings:
- Display Top-level pages (and their child-pages if template allows)
- Template is the out-of-the-box "Horizontal with dropdown menus"
The site has two pages, "About Us" and "Contact Us". Both pages contain different content and are Published. Both pages have properties:
- Checked "Show in navigation"
- Unchecked "Use this page only to group other pages"
- Unchecked "This page redirects to another page"
While both pages are at the top level, both pages appear in the main top-level nav menu. Clicking each page's name displays that page. So far so good.
Now, in the Dashboard in Pages, an administrator moves the "Contact Us" page underneath the "About Us" page.
When a visitor browses the changed site, the visitor cannot navigate to "About Us" page through the navigation menu. When a user clicks "About Us" , the navigation only shows the dropdown menu for the Contact Us page. There's no way for that visitor to directly browse to the About Us page. About Us is functioning like a group page instead of a parent page, even though the administrator did not intend it.
