Twenty Twenty-Three: When adding a sub-menu set to "open on click" the parent menu item is not clickable

Description

Summary

When adding a sub-menu to Twenty Twenty-Three via the Site Editor, the parent menu item is not clickable.

To Replicate

  1. At Appearance > Editor, add a navigation block to the Header template part
  2. Add a sub-menu to one of the top-level menu items
  3. In the Navigation block's Submenu settings on the right, select "Open on click"
  4. View the site on the front end and try to click the parent item above the sub-menu

Result

The top-level item that has the sub-menu under it is no no longer clickable, so it can never be reached. Clicking the parent item only opens the sub-menu.

Expected

You should be able to click the parent item above a sub-menu.

Note that this works correctly in Twenty Twenty-Two which is why I'm reporting this here instead of in the Gutenberg GitHub repo.

TT3 bug - on click submenu

Hi!

This is the intentional design or behavior of the navigation block.
When "Open on click" is selected, the parent menu item becomes a button that only expands the submenu.

It is not a bug in Twenty Twenty-Three since this navigation block option behaves this way in all themes.

That doesn't mean there is not room for improving the block or the documentation, -this behavior might still be unexpected to users. Do you want to open a new feature request in the Gutenberg GitHub repository?

Thank you for having a look, @poena

You are right indeed. I had tested in Twenty Twenty-Two and thought it worked differently there, but I must have not toggled on the "on click" submenu option as I thought I had, because I retested now and you are quite correct.

Do you want to open a new feature request in the Gutenberg GitHub repository?

Yes, I will go ahead and do that and will link to it from here once it's done. Thanks again!
