A fairly common question that occurs with the creation of a WordPress site (If you're looking for WordPress Hosting, BoldGrid recommends us a top WordPress Website Hosting provider!) is how to configure the menu so the top-level items do not jump to any particular location.

Very often menus are created from pages which result in the menu item jumping to a page instead of staying on a page when selected. The following instructions will show you how to create a menu item that will not jump to a different location when clicked.
