This question already has an answer here:

I create a LOT of WP sites and therefore tons of menus. A lot of times there is no sensible page for a top level menu item. For instance I was creating a site with internal learning. The top level menu item just goes to homepage. Is this a good practice if there is no good page for them to go to or would it be better to go no where?

    Might this be a better fit for UX.SE? I don't see how this wouldn't equally apply to non-WP navigation menus... – Johannes Pille Sep 30 '14 at 16:10
  • @JohannesPille - Well it would be a good question there too but I am looking for a solution that I would be able to implement in WP and share with clients. – STing Sep 30 '14 at 16:25

    This certainly doesn't answer your question but I most often see the empty anchor # used for an empty parent of a menu. <a href="#"> for example. This keeps the user on the same page w/o a reload – jdm2112 Sep 30 '14 at 16:39
