I gave up too soon. It appears it does allow a click hanlder, but only on the first menuitems menuitem.
The menuitems have to highlight from mouse-over, and only the first one in each column will highlight.
I have tried reversing the order and it still holds true, the one that would not highlight before now highlights, and vice verse.
Edit: On a hunch I put back the style="height:120px" and this fixed it.
thank you, and your product is great! I am sure I will be a paying subscriber after this virus thing is over.
I struggled with this a bit so hopefully this may help. My main problem was not paying attention to the fact the Click goes on the menu level. Not on the Menu Item. This solution is for a hybrid navigation where some items change the page. Other Items simply swap out the items on the current page. This is a test only page so it is small, I don't recommend this if you have media on the page. Please excuse the icons as I am still working on this.
