Drop Down Menus

Currently I have quite a few menu items and would like some kind of drop down menu. I know how to create sub categories but this doesn't help because if for example I create a menu page called "media" and then add "gallery" and "video" as sub categories a user can still click on the menu item "media" instead of it being a null link and just showing sub categories on hover. I can't find any way of customizing page links and I can't find anyway of adding a menu item without adding a page for it.

I've thought about adding my own completely custom css menu instead but this also isn't an option as I can only add html code within the page area and not where the actual menu is.

After some research I see threads going back 7 years asking for a drop down widget of some kind, is this still not available after all this time or is it something only available to gold members?

I find it quite hard to believe there isn't any support for such a basic thing as this.

We offer flyover menus and subpages depending on the style you choose to work with. We do not have plans to offer other types of navigation options at this time. If I'm understanding what you are trying to accomplish, you might want to consider making your top level page a landing page for the other sub pages on your menu. You can see an example of this working with our flyover menus on the Services page on this site.

Please take a look and let me know if that might work for you!

Hello Tidal

Adding on Laura's response: It's indeed not possible right now to make a navigation link a null link. It will always be clickable and take one to a page. You can create your own HTML navigation menu by undisplaying the default navigation. This can be done by taking all pages out of the navigation. So then you'll have space at the top of your pages to add your custom navigation using HTML Widgets. You could also use the Button Widgets or the Custom Panel Widgets to create your custom navigation. For the non-clickable menu links, all you need to do is leave out any URL for the link.
