Default Empty Off Site Links not displaying sub Items

As you have probably guessed by these two last posts, I am trying to convert some of my web applications from X5 and X6 to X7 and am having some difficulties.

I don't know whether this has been mentioned before, but in X7 if you create an offsite link with no hyperlinks, any sub-pages that are included in navigation do not show in a sub-menu.

regards

Steve

Just found a workaround for this:

Change the link in the Off Site Link from nolink to internet and add a # as the link.

Sub menus then display correctly.

I reported this problem a couple of weeks ago and Martin Taylor provided a short fragment of HTML code which has solved the problem for me.

See my thread titled "Offsite links greyed out if no hyperlink"

I don't disagree, Steve. It's annoying to have to do any kind of workaround for something that just worked in X6.

You'll have seen that I suggested the # hyperlink in my second post on that other thread.

That was actually your first suggestion, Martin!

I should of course have said "... the second post ...". My brain's not in gear at the moment.
