navbar page link with nest pages not working

6 posts in this topic

Every time I choose to use the Navbar and one of the links have nest pages, on hover all the nest pages links work however the main page link would not.

For example on the images attach I would like for the personal training page to be a link aswell ratter than just be a button for only the nest pages of this link. 


Not sure what I am not doing, the classic navigation bar does work normal so why the NavBar does not?

I tried to create a menu and link that to the bar however the dropdown links of the nest pages does not work with the custom menu.


I am sure this is an easy thing but I have not been able to solve it.

Hi there,


You're doing anything wrong, unfortunately that's how its been setup. The navbar is from the twitter bootstrap integration and due to the rise in touch screen/mobile devices this is how they wrote the navbar. As is someone on a touch device was trying to access the drop down they would also end up clicking the parent link.


There are some other alternatives, classic nav allows you to have a parent as a link and a drop down. There are also some premium navs in the pagelines store which allow for the top item to be a link which you could use.

The classic  is what I use, thank you for answer my question I'll look into those remium navs.


Thanks again.

Hi James and Alebrujo,


I am experiencing the same issue with main pages that have subpages (created a WP menu) not accessible via the horizontal nav bar.  But I cannot find where the "classic" nav bar is located?    Thanks for your help.

Just go to the drag and drop in the pagelines tab.  the option of Nav Classic is among the options on the headter section.

    • Scroll Nav in Safari not properly sticking to NavBar
      By janpeeters+
      I'm using the Scroll Nav extension on It works mostly great but in Safari 9.0.1 it jumps too high when it sticks. Firefox and Chrome latest versions work just fine in the current setup.
      So I'm wondering if the developer of the plugin is around to give me a clue as to how to fix this? I've thought of using the CSS Classes of the Pagelines Pro plugin but couldn't find a way to get it working.
      Thanks for any suggestions.


    • Change NavBar Menu alignment and font size
      By saur0+
      Hi, I have managed to change the size of the navbar logo to 75px, but I now want to change the size of the font on the menu (20px) and align the menu vertically to the bottom (so it is in line with the bottom of the logo image). I've been playing around with the CSS but can't seem to get it right, if anyone could give me some pointers it would be much appreciated.

    • NavBar Parent links not clickable
      By greatthingsllc
      I have used the NavBar (Content Width) with blue background color selected.   The Parent Links are not clickable, only the child links.   I have tried with "Activate DropDown on Hoover" both selected and unchecked. 
      Only the NAVI (Content Width) allows the parent links to be clickable, but you can not select a background color.    The background color is a requirement from the end user.
