Remove Pointer from Blank Menu Items


Using a hash symbol as a custom link is a great way to create non-clickable menu items when you want to add a sub-menu. However, it still appears clickable to the end-user, which may be confusing. This plugin will automatically remove the href so it no longer looks clickable.


Install, activate and you’re done.


How do I add a non-clickable menu item for use as a drop-down menu?

Create a custom link, and use a hash symbol as the hyperlink address. You can then drag the sub-menu items underneath this.

I use a lot of # in menu items. I use 2017 theme. Installed plugin Refreshed page cache (although I didn't need to, it's my front page) I held on to my seat, a slightly improved UI was about to happen! Nada. No change at all in menus, Href's still showing up. Left in on a day. Tried it on some other browser not logged in. I really want this to work.

How does this plugin not have hundreds of thousands active installs? Should be "Recommended" in the WordPress repository!!!

I didn't know you could use a hashtag to create a non-clickable menu item, but this addition to doing that is perfect. It's a simple plugin that dramatically increases the quality of a menu. I'd give this a 6/5 if I could! This should be a plugin that EVERYONE gets.
