I'm sure this is a case of can't see the forest for the trees, but I've lost my chainsaw.

1. How do we set the link colors for main color, visited color?
2. How do we set up a To Top link?
3. How do we make the 'Parent' static in the navigation menu so it doesn't open, but the drop down opens?

Editing the links inside of the new builder is a little bit different, but takes some getting used to. If you select the Page Menu, click Style, then Button, you will get an option to edit the Text color. Now, from here is where it gets a bit more complicated. If you want to edit the other colors of the link (hoovering, visiting link, etc.) you will want to click Design on the left of your builder, select Colors, then edit the color of your Palette. This will help unify a style to your website. However, it does not look like you can have a visited link color.
The "to top" feature can be found if you click Add, find Scrolling Navigation under Common, then add the Scroll Top Button where you want that button to be placed. You can also find other options here, such as a Scroll Button Bottom, or a Sections Menu.
So far from what I can see, there is not a way to make a parent link static without a link.

I hope this is helpful.

Thank you Todd, I appreciate the assist as I was driving myself bonkers with those things!
Perhaps making the Parent a static link is something to pass on to the devs.

Ah.. I didn't think you COULD click on the photo's button.. just hover over the button. So. if it opens the Photo page, then there must be a link....to photos page... is there a way to remove that link.. I am not bothered spending time playing with the problem, you have helped me enough, spellchecker alone has saved me a good year of my life so far.  I am learning at the same time, as I may well need to implement the same on a future website ( in fact it has given me an idea for my current website) and I always get a warm fuzzy feeling helping friends... If all else fails I've got my "smat" pills....You have a great day

Just so you know ... I appreciate your help and input!
There is a link ... I'll look at that some more to see if you can remove the link and still keep the item in the menu.
It's complicated, that whole drop down thing. In preview mode when I click on Photos sometimes the Photo page opens and sometimes it doesn't. Clicking around on it in various spots will eventually open the page. Which means that some visitors might hit it just right and the Photo (parent page) would open and there wouldn't be anything on it. Someone else mentioned they were having the same problem. So apparently there is a glitch.
You have a dandy day as well.

first. I know you do or i wouldn't offer it.. :) and just to confirm, I finally replicated the problem of clicking on the link and getting a page come up.. not from the drop down Odd when I tried it yesterday it was static.. Anyway I tried every conceivable setting, creation, deletion etc etc and finally had to admit defeat and accept it cannot be done.. Homestead developers have given the function to add a drop down menu to a link on the nav bar..( now called the pages menu, why I don't know).but the link is not static. Just had an idea to see if I can add a drop down menu to a text.. not hopeful.

I'm betting that when you tried it yesterday you experienced the glitch - that the page doesn't always open.
I've been trying different tacks as well with no success. You can't remove the link from it ...
Something to add to our wish list I guess.

Nope couldn't see any way to have a drop down with e text navigation menu..yep, one for the developers. A great whoo haa was made about drop downs and now its not fit for purpose..Hope they can sort it out.
