# Summary

Special menu items is a Drupal module that provides placeholder and separator menu items.

A placeholder is a menu item which is not a link. It is useful with dynamic drop down menus where we want to have a parent menu item which is not linking to a page but just acting as a parent grouping some menu items below it.

This functionality is now in Drupal 8 core. Specify non-link menu items using a Link value of:

"route:<nolink>" (without quotes)

See #2693725: Add <nolink> to allow for non-link links .

Set status to reflect what is reported in the D8 roadmap.
Looks like there is agreement on not needing this in D8 due to route:

@gg24 Did you assign by mistake?

I've updated this issues summary with an explanation of how exactly to do this in Drupal 8, so people looking for this don't have to go search through various issues, like I did.
