Managing the Menu

    Hello,

    I am struggling to do what I want with the WP menu. I want WP to automatically add child pages to a top level page (for this I use the pluggin Gekka submenu), and I want to make a second level menu element non clickable. For example if I have :

    About Us

    —->Who we are

    —->Where we come from

    —->History


    >Early days


    >Present

    —->Statistics

    I want to make the element “History” non clickable. For this I can use custom links and put # instead of an URL. The problem if I use this is that I cannot define anymore the order of my links : if all the pages “Who we are”, “Where we come from” and “Statistics” are automatically added thanks to Gekka Submenu while “History” is in fact a custom link, my menu will look like this :

    About Us

    —->Who we are

    —->Where we come from

    —->Statistics

    —->History


    >Early days


    >Present

    And I want to decide of the order of menu elements !

    Anyone knows how to solve this ?

    Thanks,

    Thomas

    For non clickable menu items, you have to create custom menu and add each page and sub pages to it. It is a time consuming task, but it gives you more control over menu items.

    PS: You cannot add a blank menu item (no URL) in your custom menu, but you can delete the URL of a menu item and make it non clickable once it is added to the menu.

    Yes, this is what I already do. However I’m looking for an automatic solution, I want pages to be added automatically in the menu and not do it manually.

    I don’t thing there is any way to do this you will just have to do it manually.

    It is a “Custom menu.” So, you alone have to add things to it!

    Yep it’s a way of looking at things :-). Thought WP has improved its menu features I feel that some obvious features are still missing…

    Well, 99.9% of WP users don’t really want this, which is why it’s not configured that way. We like having the control.

    Have you tried looking for a plugin that will accomplish this?

    I don’t know if it works, but try checking Automatically add new top-level pages

    in custom menu just below the Menu Name.
