I had this issue of not being able to disable the parent menu link in WordPress and I’ve found the following steps to resolve that issue. When creating a menu in WordPress you have the option to select pages and add them to the menu. Once you have done that the links are automatically added for each of the pages in the menu. However if you have a parent child menu links and you want to disable the menu option there is no option to edit the link. Below are the steps on how to disable the parent menu link in WordPress and I’ve provided a video at the end of the post to see the step by step instructions.
