When I set: Navbar > Brand > Link setting to a URL or page and publish the site, the link does not work. When I hover over the brand link I see that the link address is always the current page where I’m at, followed by a #. All other nav links in the navbar works as normal.
Hopefully someone can help my out with my brandlink in the navbar that I would like to link to the homepage. Although I’ve linked it to the homepage in the way Webflow’s tutorials showed me something must be blocking it. But after hours of trying I can’t figure out what the problem is here.
So, that’s why I’m now here, asking here if someone knows the solution. That would be super great!!
Hi, it looks like a real bug actually, it would even happen on a brand new navbar element.
@brando I couldn’t find any solution for this, anytime a link is put on the Brand element, the link appears to be the one of the Designer, anyway, not any other link you’d affect to it. Thanks for looking at it, it looks like a bug.
I tested out what you are saying and thats definitely is a bug. Not only link home isn’t working, but if you change it to another page it doesn’t as well. I even recreated a blank page just to test it out and it had the same error.
While the staff doesn’t fix that, here’s a workaround:
Insert a Link Block component in you Navbar
Give it the same class as you are using on you Navbar Brand
Point the link to the home page
Element Settings (D) > Link Settings
Drag you logo image inside the new Link Block you just created
Delete the original Navbar Brand Link Block
It should fix your problem.
I recommend you to create a Symbol of your navbar so you doesn’t need to recreate this processe on every page.
The Brand Link Block from the default navbar component is broken. It can’t be mapped to any link out of the box. After seeing this post from @paulina I tried several ways to make the link point to somewhere and it is just flat out not functioning. If you need some help I can show how to reproduce the error.
Thank you again for reaching out about this brand link issue.
I wanted to let you know the team created a fix for the issue. We are deploying the fix soon, and the “brand” link should be working as expected in the next few hours.
Thanks again for your help and patience on this!
