I posted this question on Monday in another thread but need to pick it up again here.
I am using the WP-Plugin "menu shortcode" to generate sub-menus on pages. This works fine as long as I link to internal pages or projects in my Lay install. As soon as I place an external ("custom") link, the link in my sub-menu won't work and it will block all other links on the page as well. I tested this quite a bit and it seems to be related to the data-type="custom" bit that gets added to those links. When I place an external link in my content area (so not via the shortcode menu) it works but when I add data-type="custom" it produces the same error.
Here is the page with those problems: http://laboratorium-haus1.de/wp2017/kuenstlerinnen-und-kuenstler/jenny-alten
And here is a page with internal links that work: http://laboratorium-haus1.de/wp2017/kuenstlerinnen-und-kuenstler/lydia-mueller
I guess it could be related to jQuery not being able to pull external content but I am not sure.
Is there a fix for this? It would be great since this would be a great way to have as many sub-menus as you want on your Lay pages! Not a big effort to generate an place them via shortcodes. Management of the menus can be handled by WP's standard menu page etc.
Thanks a lot! Cheers, Arne
