    Ok, so I have a root page, and below that I have about 10 sub-pages

    After I finished the 10 sub pages, I converted the root to a page group

    Now when I click the root in the nav menu, it brings me to the first page....instead of not being a link and just facilitating the radmenu dropdown for subpages??

    Hi Steve,

    This is the default behavior we have for Group pages, can you please share with us the exact use case scenario you want implemented, so maybe I could provide you with a possible workaround?

    I want my root nav menu to show "Links", hover-over it, and the child items display...but I don't want the "Link" item to navigate me to a page...since it's not a page....

    For example: http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/menu/examples/default/defaultcs.aspx
    "Edit"...doesn't do anything

    Boyan, here's a perfect example (see attached)

    So the title control I have grabs the page title of the current Node...which is the page group, however you're showing me the content of the first page inside that group...so even to ME who did this, I'm confused as to what's going on...

    I don't want the groups to render as links...they aren't pages...

    @Steve

    I assume you have programmed something yourself to get the page title and have it displayed.

    PageGroups redirect to the first child page in the group.
    The URL will not change you will still have the pagegroups URL in the browser. So if you pulling your title using the currentpage based on that this could be the problem.

    I guess it would help telerik if you could past the code on how you retrieve your page title (still assuming you programmed something there)

    PS: I think what everybody does is that the URL will change to the child page. Menus are opened to the childpages leve, selected styles are applied to the style menu.

    @Markus,
      But it messes with the Nav menu as well since it's selecting the page group node and not the first level...

    If you look at the panelbar the selected page IS the page group...my current page is the page group and not the first page below it...the page group page is just using the content defined in the first child page.

    Hi Steve,

    As we'll be introducing several changes in the Navigation widget and our SiteMapDataSource, I'm also logging this thread as feature request.
