I'm using the latest versions of DMS2 and Wordpress and the Sidekick menu version 1.2.7 which I think is still the latest version, and I now need to update the menu. But making any change and trying to save the menu results in a "403 Forbidden Access to this resource on the server is denied!" message. I've checked the permissions and can't see anything wrong and I can make other changes including updating the Hero Nav menu on the same site… sandgateprimaryschool.co.uk. Does anyone know what's going on?
I wanted to let the community know that there is a problem that has happened on a couple of DMS sites that we manage. The problem is that there are certain plugins/sections that DMS uses (such as 'Accordions' and 'Sidekick') that will appear to have an update. However, when you actually update the plugin it is replaced but a similarly named plugin. Here are the original plugins:
Original: http://dms.elsue.com/accordions/ (authored by @ellenmva)
Replaced with: https://wordpress.org/plugins/accordions/
Original: http://www.pagelines.com/shop/third-party-extensions/sidekick/ (authored by Evan Mattson)
Replaced with: https://wordpress.org/plugins/sidekick/
I just wanted to know if there is anything I can do to make sure that other plugins/sections do not get replaced when I update them in the future as well as bring it to the DMS community's attention so that others do not experience the same confusion and frustration. Any thoughts would be very welcome in order to avoid this in the future.
Sidekick 1.2.7 Am probably missing something simple here, but is there a way to have clickable link in the menu that simply expands/collapses the menu? (Menu set to Expandable mode, WP Menu mode.) Here would be a simple WP menu: Business Home: http://homepage.com/business HR: Benefits: http://homepage.com/business/benefits Form 1: http://homepage.com/business/form1 Form 2: http://homepage.com/business/form2 Form 3: http://homepage.com/business/form3 Policies: http://homepage.com/business/policies Contact Us: http://homepage.com/business/contact
In this case, we have "HR" there only for organization on the menu, however we don't necessarily have a dedicated page just for HR. We're looking to make "HR" clickable just as the other items would be, but just expand/collapse the submenu. (Basically, the same functionality as the expand/collapse arrows, but also for the item title)
I've seen for some other types of menus, you can just put the link for the menu item as "#", but that doesn't seem to work to expand/collapse the Sidekick menu.
Was there something I was missing?

1. the expand/collapse functionality doesn't work
2. the icons aren't right. they look like this: http://cl.ly/image/1u1z1V0w2n3G
I've got it set to WP Menu and Expandable.
