    New WordPress theme Bootscout

    Hello,

    I have been working on a new theme for UK scout websites on WordPress for a while. It has gone through a lot of redesigns and finally think it is at a good point to share and receive feedback. It works with the latest version of WordPress (5.0.3 at the time of writing) and should work fine on all devices as it is reactive. In addition, it is open source for all to use and if anyone has the skills you can submit pull requests via its GitHub project [url]https://github.com/JackFurby/Bootscout-theme[/url]. To keep this post short if you want to find out more on the theme then visit its website [url]https://bootscout.org.uk/[/url].

    I like the look of the theme, but I think it still needs more work. I've installed it and had a play around customizing it, but i've not activated it on a live site, yet.

    The menu at the top, if you put in sub menu items you the main menu link doesn't work.

    For example, if I have "About" and put sub menus for "Beavers", "Cubs" and "Scouts" the "About" link itself won't go to the "About" page - it just opens the dropdown sub menu.

    Thanks for the feedback Kieth. I am aware of this issue and will fix it (this will be my next item to work on). I started the theme by finding a base theme to apply my additions to which itself does not support sub menus hence the reason why it is currently in the theme.

    --Update: I have now fixed this bug and will be releasing an update on / by the 20th Jan 2019
