Linking Parent item to 1st Child
Not sure if I'm using the proper terminology...

There's a setting in ATO that lets you not link first level parent items in the page menu bar. But is there a way to link the parent item to the highest level child item?

as an example - http://www.losultimate.com/test/wordpress/

Right now if you click on "Roster" nothing happens. This is fine, but it would be even better if it would default to going to the 2009 page if someone clicked on "Roster" (instead of forcing someone to hover and select "2009" from the drop down list).

I have the exact same question. I ended up using the "Page Links To" plugin to redirect to the child page. However this creates a few issues. I'm also using qTranslate to to provide content in different languages. The redirect link causes the site to revert back to the site's default language, since that is what the redirect link points to.

Also, I had wanted to list my subpages in alphabetical order and redirect to the 1st child page. That wouldn't be much of an issue, but when sorting in alphabetical order, the 1st child page in one language may not be the first in another. Thus, I had to go with a set order for the child pages.

If there is a good solution to this "redirection" that might also solve my multiple language issues. I'd be very happy to know.
