I have WordPress 5.0 / Gutenberg and my theme is Graphy. I have Chrome v. 71.0.

When I upgraded to WP.5.0 and to Gutenberg (blocks) I observed that a menu that I had made unclickable before now was clickable again.

I have tried to create a new custom link and put the URL to # and then under CSS-classes both write and not write ”unclickable” but it does not work. I have also removed the # according to the instruction below.

I have tried several times without success. And now I really do not now what to do.

I wonder, is it some bug in my theme or in WP?

Before WP 5.0 I followed this instruction:

”The easiest way to do it without a plugin or anything is to use the "Menus" function of WordPress. Here are the instructions for WordPress 4.8:

From your WordPress dashboard, go to "Appearance -> Menus" In the "Edit Menus" tab, select "Custom Links" For the URL, Enter "#" (no quotes) For the link text, enter your desired text for the top level of your drop-down menu Click the "Add to Menu" button Drag the menu item to its desired position within your menu For the menu item you just added, click the down arrow to the right of the item (it will read "custom link" to the left of the item) Remove the "#" from the URL. This - in all browsers - will convert the link to plain text. Click on the "Save Menu" button”

This instruction worked fine before WP 5.0

Someone who can help me?

  • In what way isn't this working? What's happening that's not supposed to? – Jacob Peattie Feb 6 '19 at 9:23
  • Can you link us to the site? Out of interest, why would you want to make a menu visible, but inactive? This isn’t great for accessibility. – Sam Feb 6 '19 at 9:48
  • This - the following text is taken from another site - is what I want: "Have you ever wanted to add some text to your WordPress menu without it being a link? There are plenty of times when this could come in handy. For example, maybe you don’t want the top tier of a drop down menu to be clickable. Or maybe you’d like to add a label to your menu for some reason (much like my blog menu above). Whatever the reason may be, adding an unclickable link to your WordPress menu is incredibly easy."
