    I am using a horizontal dropdown menu in which the top level item is a Group page. By default, the Group page links to its first child. Instead, I would like the Group page to not link anywhere at all. Is this possible?

    Hello Jenn,

    Click on the Navigation widget's Edit button and make sure that Group pages redirect to the first subpage is not checked and save - refer to this image. This should disable redirection for the group page in your menu.

    Hi Jenn,

    You have been given and answer in a support ticket. I will paste the response here for your reference:


    You can use a redirect page instead of a group page. In order to do that click on your Group page and in the Title & properties editor choose This page redirects to another page and click on Set page to redirect to button. Select Web Address radio button and in the URL field type ~/#. Now this Redirect page will redirect to 'nowhere' and you can use it as a group page. I have recorded a short video for your convenience.

    I hope this helps and please let me know if you require any further assistance.

    Kind regards,
