My top menu links don't work; only my submenu links do. Please see screenshot for visual description.

Clarification: the top links that don't have any submenu items under them DO work; only those top menu items with submenus DON'T.

This is a Twitter Bootstrap issue. The function of the top level links when there's child level present (drop down) is to click to open the child list only.

To make your top level link work, you simply add a new menu item as the first child in the drop down list. Silly? I know. But out of our control. This is how Twitter Bootstrap does it and few are happy with it. Twitter won't fix it.

Another option would be to swap the NavBar for Nav Classic which doesn't use Twitter Bootstrap.

Bummer. Well, maybe they'll fix it if a few more people complain about it. Add my name to the list.

Thank you very much for the explanation, in any case.

They will not 'fix' it as there is no issue to fix.

This is how it is by design, in the bootstrap menu you click toe top item to activate the dropdown and get to the sub items. Now think about it, how can you make the top item a link when you have to click it to reveal the submenu? Paradox anyone?

You're right. We have an old site that allows it, but I see your point. Thanks!

      I think I may have installed pagelines pro incorrectly, and then used features incorrectly. I installed first platforms framework theme and then the child, thinking I could do setup for child later. I tried to set up a background image, and tried custom css feature in pagelines dashboard. I had mistakes in my css, and just thought that if I deleted the info in the css custom feature in pagelines dashboard that the new information would overwrite the old info. The background image didn't respond at all, probably because I didn't have the child directory renamed. I then tried to use the LSS plugin to create css and added more css, possibly, somewhere -sigh-. I never did change the background image and get it placed properly. I used a workaround and in nested containers I placed a background image which worked well enough, so I moved on to try to create my nav bar/ menu bar. When I go to the Menus panel, there is NO area where I can place a menu on a page. I have read and reread and re- re- reread the instructions for placing a menu. I've used the pagelines editor to place a menu, however only HOME shows up. I've been at this for many hours. I've since uninstalled all of my pagelines items and reinstalled, thinking that it would restore all my changes to default, but no, it is still all there, with all my unresolved issues. I am completely at a loss as to what to do next.

      How to make the Impulse menu sticky?
      Here is a site that seems like it is doing just that: http://www.manhattanperiodontist.com/
      Here is the site I am working on: http://boeriu.digitalvector.com/ 
      I have no problem showing the menu at the bottom, but when scrolling up it does not stick.  I tried to add Nav Pro menu but when I do that, it just shows on top and no matter what I try is not working as I want it to.
      Any suggestions?

      1) Toggle menu on mobile devices does not work properly, combination Chrome 56.0.2924.87 with Android 6.0.1

      2) Mobile / Default Menu > Set the primary/default navigation for your site. This will be used in the pop out mobile menu and as the default in navigation sections. Does not work.

      We are building a long-page scrolling site with Pagelines 5. Our menu is made with # links that go to a container's unique ID, e.g. container_ux7al6g
      This works, but it doesn't look great in the menu. Is it possible to assign a 'nice' # link, e.g. /#solutions ? 
      We used to do this in the DMS2 platform through a workaround, but that doesn't seem to be possible now. 
      Any suggestions?

      I just installed and added the Flipper section to my home page and it makes my navigation/menu bar items disappear.
      They do show up again when scrolling down and everything seems normal on the other pages.

      Thanks.
