Is it possible to to use quick launch headings as categories that aren't themselves links? I don't want the headings to be clickable.

I've tried setting the web address to blank, javascript: return true;, etc. but SharePoint's pretty strict about it being a "valid" url.

The Recent heading does this, but I have a feeling it's a special kind of heading.

My best bet seems to be stripping out the links with some js in the masterpage, but that seems a bit hacky.

Is there a better way?

  • do you mean you want to add new headings to quicklaunch like Recent? – Akshay Randive Nov 26 '17 at 3:42
  • Only like Recent in the sense that they're not clickable. But otherwise completely standard headings. Headings that aren't clickable. – aecl755 Nov 26 '17 at 8:30
  • Have this changed since SharePoint 2013 where you just could add a title and no url to act as a header? – Christoffer Nov 27 '17 at 8:06
  • Yup. In SharePoint 2016, if you don't include a url, it'll save it with "/" instead of nothing. – aecl755 Nov 27 '17 at 10:21
