This is a difficult one to search for and describe, which is further complicated due to the fact that my site is not live, and is hence not available for reference in this post.
My problem is this. I am using a Restaurant theme that Features a Navigation Item named Menu, which is generated from posts that are marked either Menu, or a sub-category under Menu (i.e. Breakfast, etc). The sub-menu pages (drop-down under Menu) display perfectly, however the "Menu" page itself displays everything under the Menu Category, or its sub categories. This results in the Menu page being over 50 posts long, which needless to say does nothing to promote an easy navigation of our dishes.
What I'm looking for is a simple solution to disable the hyperlink in my Navigation Menu for the "Menu" category. When a user hovers over "Menu" I want the sub categories to show up in the drop down, however I don't want a user to be able to click on "Menu" itself. Basically, force the users to select a sub menu of either breakfast, lunch, etc.
This is the only solution I've been able to come up with, the rest would require significant coding to alter the menu display pages, which is beyond my skills and budget to have someone else do this.
I think I just need some Custom Function that says if Navigation Menu contains a category menu item named "Menu", disable it's hyperlink... if that makes sense.
Does anyone have any ideas?
