Going to piggyback on this thread since @MattKurkowski just replied on Monday and it seems this issue is persisting and problematic for several SS 7.1 users.
Can someone from the @SQUARESPACE team advise when this update will be released? This is a major functionality issue from a user standpoint and can lead to confusion. At the very least it should mirror the SS 7.0 functionality where we have the option to do this.
I confirmed again today with SS customer care that they do not have current notes on how this can happen - the suggestions are to use links which we are all aware cannot house the sub-pages relevant to the primary navigation link we want linked.
I'd really appreciate some sort of help with resolving this within the Squarespace framework. Some might disagree with the group above but at the least having an option for this would be a great feature.
