So I just set up a menu under Appearance > Menus, using the Atahualpa 3.5.2 theme, and I’m pleased to say it is working well (the menu was broken for a while).
The only thing I miss is that now all levels of the menu are active, and I liked it before when the theme managed the menu and allowed me to make the top levels of the menu inactive. With WP3, the theme has given control of the menu to WP3, in order to be able to integrate the new menu feature in WP3.
So I’m wondering how I can make the top levels of the menu inactive.
For example, I have:
The “Upcoming” is a page, but it is empty. There is really no content for it, it is just an empty page acting as a parent for the children.
Before with WP2 no could click on it. Now people can, and all they get is an empty page.
Rather then using empty pages, use the custom links box, and use
#in the URL field, it’ll be clickable, but not go anywhere, and you can give the item any name you like.. (without a need to create a page).
If you don’t see a “Custom Links” box, click on “Screen Options” (top right), and check the appropriate checkbox to enable custom links..
Hope that helps.. 🙂
hello. i am dealing with the same issue, however i can’t find the “custom links” box. i’m using wp 3.0.1
what i am missing? thanks!
i am under “Appearance”, however there’s only 3 options available: Themes, Widgets and Editor
Don’t know what to tell ya. Under “Appearance” I have the following in this order:
Atahualpa Themes Options
As you can see, I use the Atahualpa Theme, which I had to update to get to work with WP3. Perhaps the lack of Menu showing up under Appearance is because your theme doesn’t support the WP3 menu system. Like I said, I had to update my theme before I could get the new menu system to work.
You probably need to add support for the menus to the theme.
add_theme_support( 'nav-menus' );
I’ve never had to add support to a theme(educated guess), hence my lack of knowledge on that key piece of info, thanks .. 😉
