Create A Drop-down Menu

Create an Empty Parent Menu

Often you don’t need to have a parent menu that loads a specific page but just a container to group few menu items together.

By default, Joomla 3 doesn’t have a standard menu type for empty menu elements, but you Ā can still do it. Just create a main menu item following the same steps described above until you have to choose the Menu Item Type. But instead of a “Single Article”, let’s select System Links -> External URL.
