When using the nav bar with out a child page it works great. Click on the the parent page you go to that page.
Add a child page to the same parent page and when you click the original parent link on the nav bar drops down and you can now only access the child link; no way to click to access the original parent link
What are we over looking? How do we access the parent link?
“The parent items in the navigation bar serve as placeholders for the child-level items. They are not accessible from the navigation. This was in an effort to make sure the navigation was compatible on as wide a variety as possible of different mobile devices.”
Okay, let us build a complete answer from your original answer above. I understand the Parent becomes the Place Holder. With that in mind, what is the best practice for setting up and publishing the parent page as a non-accessible place holder?
Is it best to set up the parent page as a blank page, other than naming Parent’s Title of the place holder page?
What is the suggested publishing setting the Parent Page? Assuming you want us to use the parent placeholder page, only a place holder.
Hi, just disable “index this page” and disable “Generate Social Tags”. This page should not be taken into account by google, but links should be followed. So there is no need for a meta description for this page.
I normally add some info on this page, just in case a curious visitor enters the address manually into the browser.
You should therefore enter the browser title and folder name.
Keep the “Show in navigation” checked, otherwise the parent page will not be displayed in the navigation.
