Active drop down menu headers - 7.1 Question

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

Possibly a super basic question but hoping someone can help.

Am building a site for a school in 7.1 and am using the folder system in the main nav to create drop down menu/nav.

See attached photo

At the moment I have the list of folders appearing in the main nav - Nursery, School, Admissions etc etc

Under each one I have the pages, which appear as clickable linked pages - Curriculum, Typical Day, Uniform

However, what I really want is for the top level nav items (Nursery, School, Admissions etc etc) to be clickable, linking to a page.

Is there a way to create a drop down navigation system which also has that top level item as a clickable option linking to a page in the same way the pages which appear in the drop down do?

Any help greatly appreciated.

There's a difference of opinion about whether clicking folder names is a good idea. I don't recommend it because it confuses the interface, especially for mobile visitors, who will typically account for 50% or more of your visitors. Squarespace are with me on this, and have disabled this feature on 7.1.

That said, if you really want to do this, see my post here:
