    Hi,

    I'm wondering if its better to make the link of the active page disabled or not.

    So if i have:

    Home | About | Services | Contact

    and the user is on the About page, should the About link be inactive so that the user can't click it? It is after all a redundant function as the user won't acheive anything if they are already on the about page and click the About link.

    You thoughts appreciated...

    I never disable a link in a menu, but I make it obvious of what page you are currently on (e.g. change the color).
