Navigation Folder Not Clickable

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I've been having trouble getting navigation folders to work in the Degraw template (7.1). It appears to me that clicking on the navigation folders does not do anything. When I hover over the folder, I can see the proper URL/page destination in the bottom left corner. However, no amounts of clicks or positioning of the clicks seems to get the page to load.

I thought that the default was to load the first page in the folder, but nothing happens when I click. I've tried multiple iterations of this code injection that I've found in these forums/other websites to no avail:

<!-- Dropdown Accordion Code --><script type="text/javascript" src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.4.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script>
  $( document ).ready(function() {
    $(".header-nav-folder-title").eq(0).prop('href', '/services');
  });
</script>

Anyone else run into this problem? I would really appreciate any insight or help with this!

Thanks in advance for your help!

In the original posts, I explained that Squarespace have prevented clicking on nav folders in 7.1 which is why previously-posted solutions don't work.

The solution below, posted by @tuanphan should work when added to Settings > Advanced > Code Injection. Modify the links (/folder1, /page1 and so on) to suit your folder urls and pages.

<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.5.1.min.js" integrity="sha256-9/aliU8dGd2tb6OSsuzixeV4y/faTqgFtohetphbbj0=" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>
<script> 
  $(document).ready(function() { 
    $('a.header-nav-folder-title[href="/folder1"]').click(function() { 
      window.location = "/page1"; 
    }); 
    $('a.header-nav-folder-title[href="/folder2"]').click(function() {
      window.location = "/page2";
    });
  }); 
</script>

Note that it may appear to give strange results whilst logged on (for example a double refresh within the preview window) but this is due to the way that preview window is framed, but it should work fine for website visitors (or whilst logged out).

Hello, first post here. Sorry to open up an old thread but I don't see a way to message anyone. I'm using @tuanphan code to make my dropdown clickable. And its working as expected... when left-clicked. When left-clicked it opens an overview page which is not linked on the site as I had read to do elsewhere. But, if I middle-click or right-click open in new tab, it instead takes me to the first page in the dropdown. Did I do something wrong? Do I need another workaround? 

 

My site im working on is www.thetenmg.com  try it out on the team folder if you can. Middle clicking and right clicking aren't behaving the way I thought they would. 😞

For future members, use this new code

<script>
$(document).ready(function() { 
// desktop
  $('.header-nav-item.header-nav-item--folder:nth-child(2)>a').click(function() {
    window.location = "/thetenmembers";
  });
  $('.header-nav-item.header-nav-item--folder:nth-child(2)>a').attr('href','/thetenmembers');
// mobile
  $('.container.header-menu-nav-item [href="/services"]').click(function() {
    window.location = "https://beaverhero.com";
  });
});
</script>

I did that: https://focusfinder.ch/angebot

Is it possible to click to "Offer" and also to the arrow, so that the sub navigation opens?
